Davy’s the name and dune buggying, surfing, skateboarding and anything else outdoors is the game!
I have always loved being outdoors and enjoying the sunshine as much as possible. Hell, I’m surprised I don’t have skin cancer after all these years!
Well I wanted to tell you all a little about my background, how I grew up and what my plans are for the future. After all, I think it’s about time in my life to find a little lady, settle down and maybe even have a few kiddos. Who knows! Only time will tell – but first thing’s first. Gotta find that lady!
Well I grew up skateboarding and surfing with all of my friends in California. We would wake up before the sun was rising, grab a taco from the taco stand on the corner and head to the beach. I had a good buddy named Morgan when I was around 13-14 years old. His older brother Mason drove us everywhere, including to the beach at the crack of dawn.
We would load up the boards, grab our tacos, scarf them down on the way to the beach and be in the water just as the sun was fully visible.
Even though it was summer, the air was cool and we were in the water before the sun caused the asphalt to turn to lava.
Those were the good days. We didn’t have to worry about what time work started and when we had to get out of the water – because we didn’t have jobs, we didn’t have responsibilities and we CERTAINLY didn’t have girlfriends or anyone else who told us what to do.
We were free. We did what we wanted to.
This is the life I miss dearly. Honestly, sometimes I think that that is what Heaven will be like. A life free from worries, free from responsibilities and free from those who make our lives harder rather than easier.
A life that is filled with joy and all of the activities that make you the happiest.
I know Heaven will solely be about observing the glory of God once we meet him, but at the same time I can’t help but think that the joyful creator of the universe would want us to experience all of the joys of our former life in Heaven, unhindered from all that worried us on Earth.
This is the world we lived in for 4-5 years before “life” began to tug on our shirt and start to demand things of us.
I will always want to go back to those days. And I honestly can’t wait to have a son that is around that age – there won’t be a single time I tell him “no” when he asks to go to the beach and enjoy the outdoors.
Well, I’m hoping that that tells you a little bit about who I am and where my mind is.
I’m in love with the outdoors and truly believe that there are many nature-experiences that are quite literally windows into Heaven and the future that God has for us after we leave this earth.
