New Discoveries

Some people are quite content

To fly the same route

Day after day,

Never exploring beyond

The familiar airspace.

Some bore easily.

They always want to discover

What’s just out of sight.

I guess I’m a combination

Of the two.

I love to venture

Farther and farther

From home base.

What haven’t I seen?

What haven’t I done?

I’m always up for

A new adventure.

And yet,

The wonders I see

If I adjust my focus,

And zero in on

What I consider

The familiar,

Are awesometastic.

Whether the “new discoveries”

Are off in the distance

Or right in front of me,

May I rejoice in the Blessings of Today.

The word awesometastic is thanks to my son’s friend Bill. I think it’s great: one of those new discoveries close to home. :~)

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world (1 Timothy 6:6-7, ESV).
