where am i headed?

i love the picture that i posted as the header for this blog o' mine. i took it a couple years back in herrnhut germany, on top of the prayer tower in the cemetery. i am not one who likes to go perusing through cemeteries like my mother & sister do. however, this one was different. matter of fact, the whole town was different. i have never felt that type of peace over a city before. it could and prolly in fact does stem from the believers in the area setting up a watch of continuous prayer which ran uninterrupted, 24 hours a day, for over 100 years back in the 18th century.

however, that's not really what i wanted to write about this picture. what some may see, its just the quintessential german town, with the rolling hills in the back ground. what i see are nations. literally. in the fore ground in german soil. the highest hill on the right of the picture is poland and way off in the very back is czech lands.

why does this photo speak to me so? sure. it could be because i am a german polock and although i have a heart to go back to germany and finally enter into poland, this picture is about more than that. the three nations are three areas in my life. my comfort zone, just outside my comfort area and so far out there that i cant see it if it were any more clouded over. its that place WAY out there that i need to head for.
it doesn't matter if its raining or not, i know that what i need to aim at is out there.
