Boston is steeped in heritage. Not only our country's heritage but as Believers our spiritual heritage. The Commonwealth of Boston was established by Puritans. Like every generation of Believers, they had their faults, however, they forged the way for us to be able to worship freely today. We passed many historical churches and toured The Old North Church. Many of these churches have been a place for Believers to come and worship for 300 years! As we walked through The Old North Church it was humbling to think of the number of saints who had sought after God in those pews. I pray I will leave behind a rich heritage for the next generation to follow in.

My affinity for Boston began in 1999 on a two day drive by while on a church trip. My heart quickly fell in love with its beauty, history and community feel. (I am a closet history nerd whose secret indulgence often involves the history channel). My heart has not been disappointed today! The beauty of Boston in the fall far surpassed my expectations! I realize how important times like this are for me. I love teaching but it drains every bit of creativity and passion that I have leaving very little to devote to other passions of my heart. Getting away to places that inspire my creativity and passions are so vital! Not to mention good time to enjoy my Father! More to come over the next few days! Enjoy some of my inspirations from today!
