(way′ƒar-er) [Late ME wayfaren < OE wegfaran (from: way + fare)] n. 1a. A foot traveler. 1b. -n. jour. The Wayƒarers Passage introduces the seven wayƒarers. (See wayƒarer in the Glossary)

The Quest for the Real Life Go Down Go Up
SOME PEOPLE do not have to search, they find their niche early in life and rest there, seemingly contented and resigned. They do not seem to ask much of life and sometimes it appears that they do not take life seriously. At times I have come to find myself envying them, but most of all, I just do not understand them, seldom if ever do they understand me.
I am one of the truth seekers, who in life chooses to walk afoot upon the way. (Isaiah 35:8) Some would call me a wayƒarer, of which, methinks, there are millions of us; we are not unhappy, but neither are we content.
Thus, we continue to explore this way, the one found in the LORD′s Word, always hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. 1
Too, we continue to turn inward to explore the selƒ, our inner person, always desiring the reason for the purpose of being here.
  The Wayƒarer
Further, we are life seekers, ambitious for everything beautiful it provides. We love walking along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and its unspeakable beauty.
During summer, we are often found on high elevations of the mountain to walk the high path above the treeline, where the air is rarefied and benumbs exposed skin, but only there, is where the majestic views are never ending.
At times, deep within the shadow of the old growth forest, our search for the solitude we desire is rewarded with a quietness that is found nowhere else, especially so in the rain or when we unexpectedly come upon an intimate moment with a doe nursing her fawn. Stopping to watch in awe as the the moment grows into minutes and which minutes turn into a lifetime of memories.
However, it is during winter when we frequent the desert, taking steps among the cactus, the dunes and the Joshua tree, where we experience an abundance of both profoundness and simplicity.
From time to time, when we come upon the roads end, we continue, oar in hand into the backwater to heighten our appreciation for the variety of wildlife and waterscapes encompassed within this part of creation, always endeavoring to explore, learn, and live at one with it.

Too, we are righteousness seekers and always ready to welcome fellowship with, and desirous of sharing with those, who like our selves have the same inner decency, good character and rectitude.
Many of us have forsaken previous city dwellings because living therein has become too grievous for us to endure, leaving that bulwark of filth and sin, desiring never to return there again. Instead, we have taken to the back roads, those very pathways that help us to explore the way as we continue seeking for truth, always striving to find the answers to our questions about life′s meaning.
Our heart is saddened only because of the fact that we have yet to find the secret to the real life and this sadness is as much a part of our life as is our laughter. To share our sadness with someone we love is perhaps as great a joy as we will ever know—unless it be to share our laughter.

Most important I say, we are meekness seekers, desirous to be taught by Almighty God, and as such, pray to Him that He may find us worthy of receiving His concealment during His coming anger and destruction of wickedness. 2
Furthermore, we pray to Him that He bring us home unto his real life. To be in the paradise here on the earth is our most treasured hope for our future. 3
As we journey, much wax must needs be burned to provide light for reading His Word. Yes, we can not but learn much from the experiences on these two juxtaposing paths; the path afoot and the path traveling upon the pages of the Bible.

(Matthew 13:35) That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
(Zephaniah 2:2) Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD′S anger come upon you.
(Zephaniah 2:3) Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD′S anger.
(1 Timothy 6:19) Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
