Celebrating the Journey

11 10 2012

Three years ago, Tim and I celebrated our new marriage with a small wedding in Pittsburgh. Today, in an effort to revisit that occasion,  I read through the ceremony once again. Here, I share one of the passages that seems particularly relevant as we begin our second year of service in a rural town half a world away from the place where we fell in love.


The road the two of you have traveled since we all lived within a few blocks of one another in tiny Mount Pleasant, Michigan, has been remarkable… But what of the journey ahead?  Where will it take you?  No one can say.  Consider for a moment, as Rumi did in many of his writings, a compass.  In his time this invention was both innovation and revelation, but a compass is a simple thing, really.  It only knows one thing for certain, and everything else is just a well calculated guess.

It knows its true north…

Know your true north.  Let your arrow guide you.  Follow the road on your shared journey forward that runs closest to your hearts.
