To Ponder

My friend Tara sent me this quote: "On earth we are wayfarers, always on the go. This means that we have to keep moving forward. Therefore, be always unhappy about where you are if you want to reach where you are not. If you are pleased with what you are, you have stopped already. If you say, "It is enough," you are lost. Keep on walking, moving forward, trying for the goal."
~ Saint Augustine of Hippo

Walking, still.


  1. Coming to you from CoffeeGirl! Great to see you blog added to the roll...great quote...looking forward to reading more...

  2. I've come and read your post three times this week, thinking I'd like to comment, but I am to lazy to go look something up. It reminds me of that verse in Hebrews 11 that talks about Abraham living in a country he was to receive for an inheritance. Then it says that people who say such things make it clear that they are looking for a country of their own, a heavenly one. for if they had been thinking of the country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return.

    Ok, I know I slaughtered that verse, but the thought is there. We can' be ever thrilled with where we are, how we are, how far we have come.. but looking forward to a goal.

  3. Ok, my perfectionism won't let me get away with that...

    Here is the verse:
    15And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return.

    16But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.

    We keep desiring to move one, we desire better, so we keep walking.
