I was realizing the other day that I do not have a very adventurous spirit unless someone else pulls me into the adventure.
Most of the adventures I have taken are because of friends and family who have pushed or pulled me along.
I like the idea of being adventurous kind of like, I like the idea of farming or ranching. I read about it in books or I see pictures and it sounds exciting, looks beautiful, or is said to be fun, so I want to do it, too.
I love the idea of exploring and discovering new places. I love the idea of visiting places I have never been to before. I love seeing God's beautiful creation and being in awe of his wonderful artwork on display throughout the world.
But when it comes down to it, I am a homebody at heart. I love to be at home surrounded by the ones I love in my own cozy kitchen.
I am not very daring and I am not very adventurous. I don't generally go seeking adventure on my own. And if I do seek an adventure probably it is going to be something like, "Lets go for a walk down the road that we always walk down."
It has been a little over three months now since Tyler and I first arrived in Israel. And I can assure you that I would never have come here on my own. I would never even have dreamed of coming here on my own.
But I am grateful to be married to a man who is willing to take a big leap of faith, and pull me along in his adventures. Because of God and Tyler I get to explore a different country and a different land; a different culture and different foods.
I may not be very adventurous on my own, but I do love having friends and family and a husband who is willing to pull me along and help me discover new things. Sometimes I go into it kicking and screaming, but in the end I truly am grateful for the experience (ok most of the time I am).
How about you? Are you a homebody or do you like to get out and explore, take chances, and see the world?
