The theme at Carpe Diem this month is that of a pilgrimage through various Buddhist shrines on the island of Shikoku, Japan. I am not a Buddhist, so I cannot engage in this prompt in the way that some can/will. That being said, as a Christian, you could say that I am on a pilgrimage of my own. I have been forgiven, but I’m certainly not perfect (nor will I be until I get to meet my Savior face to face). I am called, though, to live a perfect life. I know that this is an impossibility, and yet it is what I need to strive for/yearn for. If I can each day learn to live a bit more like Jesus would have me live, then I think that this pilgrimage is worthwhile.

Yes, there is an ultimate goal – to live with Jesus in Heaven…but right now, I am called to live here. I need to make the most of it!
