Welcome


Welcome Friends,
If you are viewing this page, you are on my blog that I plan to use to document my journey here in Europe, more specifically London. I borrow my blog title from Christian author, Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose Driven Life. In this book,Warren provides insights on how to seek your own purpose, authorized by God, by examining your life over 40 days. I go on to say all this to point to the fact that I do indeed believe that this entire journey, as well as what I have gone through in life thus far, is in fact part of the plan that God has for my life. I cannot easily say what my purpose in life is yet, but I do feel that I am called to do great things. To say the least, I hope you all enjoy reading as I continue to post. Feel free to comment and let me know you are thinking of me, as I am surely thinking of you. Keep myself and my cohort in your prayers; we greatly appreciate it.

Florence, Italy


All I can tell you about Florence is that here I ate a lot of Italian food—some authentic, some more touristy.  I didn’t learn much about this city, but I had a map and I saw most of what was supposed to be important, although I cannot tell you much about them without doing research on my own—which I will do when I have time.  Gelato here is great, although I won’t say it’s any different from what you can get at Wegmans.  However, Wegmans may be limited in the flavors they carry. In Florence, every place you went carried different flavors. Flrence is home to the statue of David and a replica.  I didn’t make it to the original because we traveled to Pisa for half a day, and the line is usually long all day.  By the time we were back, we had less than 30 minutes to get to the other side of town to see it—the replica did us just fine.
