Walking by Faith, my observation.

When you think about the saying, "Walking by Faith", is it the definition of your life, it mine.
2 Corinthians 5:7     For we walk by faith, not by sight.



Prior to my Faith in the Lord, I walked by my own will, my own desires and my own opinion.  I loved adventure then and I love adventure now.  Until I came to Trust the Lord, I did not really have the courage to venture out on an adventure...and my life sense 1981 has been anything but boring, normal or predictable, it has been an adventure. 
On that warm summer night driving down the 405 from Costa Mesa to Long Beach, I surrendered my life to Jesus.  I started my journey of walking by Faith.. Not an easy road but full of excitement and consistent change.


I am fast approaching my 64th birthday and can hardly believe it.  64!?!?! Really? 

But I must say, in my 60's, I have had such a great time.  There have been days where I was not real sure what the next day would bring, where I might lay my head, or how I was going to pay for a cup of coffee.  And yet, the Lord says, "I know the plans I have for you.. and it is good!"  Does my life look like anyone else's, NO!  But it is my life.

In the past 2 years I have lived in California, Arizona and Utah with the intension of settling down in Oregon along the northern coast.  I drove 40K miles in a old 1998 320 Mercedes with no heat, no air, no radio, and often
the windows did not work.  I lived in Utah in the winter and I was in Utah and Arizona in the heat and yet...it is my great adventure.

As I settle into the Oregon coast I continue to walk by Faith.  I have worked at a Resort in Newport Or, did Timeshare sales in Seaside and currently
running the dinning rooms at a Christian Conference Center in the heart of Cannon Beach, a sweet and small coastal resort town. 

I continue to walk by Faith, taking it a step at a time... I have a cute beach cottage a block from the beach, I even bought a car with a radio that works, windows that work, Air and Heat!  Woot Woot!
I have yet to totally settle in but I certainly am on the way.  I am on my way to making a home here in Oregon... or so I think...

  Enjoying the diversity
