Search

In the month of October I will be linking up with other writers on Five Minute Friday for thirty-one days. Each day I will write about one word for five minutes. Here goes…

I love doing research, which is why I enjoy working on my family tree. I love to find answers that are mysteries to me. 
History was always my favorite subject in school. I love reading about the past, and I love Geography. I love to travel and my favorite GPS are old-fashioned maps.

Every human is searching for something.  I travel to see different places than where I live. I delve into the past to discover people and unknown stories of family I have never met. 

Some enjoy the thrill of extreme games, rock climbing, skydiving, or hiking the whole long way of the Appalachian Trail. They make goals, meet them,  and for a while the adrenaline rush satisfies.

I’ve mentioned the divine spark, that ‘something’ in us that propels us to search for deeper meaning in life. There are those who search all their lives outside themselves, when all along it is not something to do, but someone to discover.

Where is your search taking you? Have you discovered the reason you are alive?

 …your purpose in life? 

…the Creator of all?

  1. Such a powerful question. Sadly, an answer to which I’m still trying to find out.
    Perhaps the search will never end though? Where has your search taken you? Do you feel a satisfaction with where you currently are?

    1. I think we are always searching in life. For me the meaning of life is in Christ, and living out of that is an adventure. It is not by any means easy! We live in a sometimes cruel world. People are always searching for peace in something. Peace is in Christ.
