It may not be new, but it's new to me.
I'm a big believer in innovation. Perhaps I'm wired that way. Perhaps it was my first career as a systems analyst. Perhaps it was going to an engineering college.
No matter why, I like to try new things. They may not always be innovative but they help me re-imagine things that I regularly do in ways that might spark creative genius or re-invigorate a forgotten joy.
I recently took a trip to Puerto Rico for the first time. It was beautiful and magical. Old San Juan had amazing food, colors, and people. I highly suggest going if you've never been.
I took this picture while I was there. Normally this street is very crowded or at least the parts that lead up to it are. At the end of the street you can see the governor's mansion.
The history of this street goes back 500 years. The street definitely has stories to tell. But for me, it was all brand new.
Going to new places helps me to see how big and beautiful the world really is but also allows me to appreciate my corner of the world and what makes it special.
And it reminds me that the streets that I travel everyday have stories that are yet to be written.
I have a part in writing that story. In fact I have a responsibility to write God's story daily.
The streets I travel regularly have stories that aren't new to me but are new to others. In fact a life of faith is downright innovative for many people in this world.
May you find ways to appreciate the innovation of all that you do on a regular basis. And may your life write a story that always points to God's love.
Until Everyone Hears,
Acts 8:36 -
As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch *said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?”
