I was supposed to go to Newfoundland this weekend but due to massive snow storms there all flights were cancelled so my Buddy and I decided on a road trip instead. Unplanned we ended up in Portland, Maine and over the miles we shared a lot of conversation. This poem sort of tells the conversation that two guys go through on a long road trip leaving out discussions on sex that are usually mingled in as well lol

Road Trip Philosophy


We talked about old friends

Of people we knew

Talked of the weather

Skies midnight blue

We talked about politics

You understand

We talked about immigration

To our great land

The day turned to night

As the miles slipped behind

Looking for excitement

To see what wed find


We shared thoughts on philosophy

Our moral values and insights

Talked about sports

Baseball and the fights

Discussed family and lovers

                                          Both present and past

Laughed at each others stories

Driving just a little too fast

On through the long night

Many miles passed away

Shared so much private thought

Tight friends are that way


When the talk turned to God

What we both believed

I told him I loved God

But I no more was deceived

By the trappings and finery

The stained glass and lace

I found my God beside me

In all that I face

He smiled and he told me

God is where he will be

I may preach his word in a church

The love he gives you is free.

WOW!! You hit this one dead on the money.

God is our friend, mentor and pilot of our souls. I wish I could've heard the conversation you and your friend had. I'm sure it was classic nd I'm also assured that somewhere...sometime...we will read more about your "Roadtrip".

Reviewed by Barbara Terry 3/5/2006
Thank you Felix, for sharing this. And yes, God is everywhere, and stained glass, lace and fancy suits don't make a good Christian. I pray to God in my bedroom, in my living room, sitting in the park, just taking a walk. God is indeed everywhere that we may be in any given instance. And all things are possible from God, through His son Jesus, and as long as we believe on the name of Christ Jesus, we will be forgiven our sins, as long as we don't kill anyone, hurt anyone, or commit suicide.

Road trips are great tho, because it gives us time to reflect, to talk to strangers we meet, to laugh, to enjoy nature, to enjoy the things God has given us. Thanks for pre-teen memories, my dear brother.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

ps: Also thanks for your reviews too.
