I’m so grateful for my job. The past two weeks I have driven thousands of kilometers…. All the way to Cairns to now where I find myself writing from the quiet country town in Central Queensland, Longreach. For those of you who don’t know I am taking care of PR & Marketing for Easterfest, a massive Christian festival held every year in Toowoomba. I’m mainly meeting up with people who have facilitated bringing groups in the past. I am so amazed at how far people DRIVE! The crew from Cairns literally spend over 24 hours (2000kms) just driving! I guess that provides some of the highlights…. Last year they succeeded in hit TWO dogs?!?!
So it’s been amazing so far… And only now am I getting to blog! The mini twitter blogs will have to tell stories of the past…
Two days ago I still hadn’t worked out who I was meeting or where I was staying in Longreach. I decided to call the Baptist church and then was recommended to talk to a guy called Peter. I LOVE how God ordains my steps! This family welcomed me in and is amazing. I know we’ll be friends now. One day I want to come back and see their 18,000 acre farm 60kms away! It sounds amazing!
There is something so intriguing about driving through and being in the Australian outback.
You can drive for hours and count three mailboxes and not see a single homestead!
You can drive in solitude for hours barely have to pass anyone and stop when you feel like it (in the middle of the road!) to take a photo.
A 110km zone is interpreted by locals as 120kms minimum.
The landscape is always changing… Always amazing. Right now everything is so green and luscious from so much drought breaking rainfall!
You spot a random cow or sheep and know that it’s just one of thousands and that one day a grazier will come out of the woodwork to call that beast home. Everyone accounted for… Every one someones livelihood.
The sky… so blue highlighting the fluffy clouds each with it’s own identity or characture.
Each evening the sky then burst into glorious colour… like a bride revealing her beauty to an awaiting groom, creation is bringing glory to God in case no human notices…
As darkness invades, more stars then one can comprehend begin to reflect the glory of God. How can we be silent? How can we not worship?
Beauty is everywhere… Stop and enjoy and allow your heart to worship the creator today!
