June 7: A Beautiful Ride Along The Spanish Riviera
Bicycling is a great way to explore new places. You can stop easily whenever you want. Go whatever pace you desire, and really get a feel for the pace and nature of wherever you are. I personally love to explore on bikes.
We decided to head west along the riviera. The path was uneven, so the videos will reflect that. The views, and the fresh air ... stunning, to say the least. Being able to experience it with my son...well, it made for an unforgettable ride! These pictures and videos will give you a 'ride along' feel with us. Enjoy.....
As we were riding, I thought about where I am. On the other side of this very same body of water....a long, long time ago, the apostle Paul was traveling. He travelled on this water a lot. He was even shipwrecked there. Alexander the Great also travelled this sea towards Egypt, and other places.
Hmmm...Got me thinking about all the history I am surrounded by. I love it! Spain has a richness inherent in the old buildings and castles, the multi-generations of families doing life together, and the customs of the country.
We don't yet have that in America. St. Augustine in Florida is the oldest city in the United States. It is really fun to go visit, and you can even taste the water of the famed "fountain of youth." I like that too. It has a little feel of the richness of time. Not as much as the richness of time inherent in Spain, and Europe, as a whole.
Being here, for me, has given me an even greater appreciation of history. This got me thinking about the scripture in Hebrews 13:8-9, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them."
I am connected with the creator of the whole world. My life, though it be just a breath, has meaning and purpose that is much bigger than me.
So, what does that mean for me today? Enjoy my time with my son and daughter to the fullest! Experience the wonders of Spain and France together. Savor the fun. Savor the time.
"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!" (Psalm 34:8)
