Sojourn

Decided to change the blog title to “interesting… diary of a pilgrim” It is indeed true that we are only pilgrim on earth.

Interesting, I was looking for the word pilgrim in the bible, then in http://www.biblestudytools.com on sojourner, and decided to m.dictionary.com on pilgrim. Guess what? Word of the day flash on screen “Sojourn”.. coincidence?!? Think not!

Let’s see what’s sojurn:

sojourn SOH-juhrn; so-JURN
1. To stay as a temporary resident; to dwell for a time.
2. A temporary stay.

That’s true. We will not be on earth forever, in fact only for a short time. So yes, we sojourn here on earth. Then why pilgrim?

pil·grim
[pil-grim, -gruhm]- noun
1. traveler to a sacred place

Indeed! We are journeying to a sacred place which is heaven! So we are pilgrims sojourners here on earth!
