Coolest Experience

carTonight Stefani and I drove our all-terrain minivan down 12 miles of beach at the North End of the OBX. Most people rent a jeep for this experience. Not us. What a beautiful and awe inspiring adventure. The waves slapping the beach with my wheels sliding through the sand. It is much like driving in two feet of snow.  What a romantic experience as we saw wild horses, watched the sun set, and drove back to the main road through the incoming fog.

I have discovered that the greatest beauty and adventure in life happens off the beaten path. This is true in our physical and spiritual lives.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:13,14 – NIV).

I feel sorry for those who play it safe. Those who avoid beauty and adventure for what is safe. Life is found where few have gone.
