Yo, over here. I found it! I had misplaced my simplistic, childhood faith about 45 years ago, thanks in part to a combo of pleasure-seeking teenage hormones and a smarmy know-it-all college professor in my freshman year who spoke on the existence of God … and God lost. Over time, as a seeker of truth, I eventually found God again, mostly by holding up every experience and observation of life to the Is-there-a-god-or-isn’t-there-a-god litmus test.

Well, I’m pleased to say that the “experiment” is over. Found Him! Proof positive, based on a combo of study, research, reading, honest questioning, sharing, listening, and a willingness to open my heart, mind and soul to inspiration. So, after years of roaming the jungle (that’s “rain forest” to my tree hugger friends); getting tangled in vines of frustration; following a whole bunch of other roads, dead ends all; smacking into trees in my blindness; and just stumbling and fumbling, I found the path … the right path. Seekers finders, finders keepers!

My point: The journey was – and I suspect will continue to be – part of the faith process. No matter how thick and dark the jungle, God is guiding us, watching over us, with us always, and waiting for us to open our eyes and see the path. Ahhhhhhhh!

“Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.”
- Psalm 25:4-5

But enough about me. (Yeah, right!) As a seeker finder, finder keeper, now my joy is to be a keeper sharer or keeper giver. And that’s the best part of all. Amen.
