Day One: 6:13amJanuary 15, 2010 No Comments
… okay, got the directions.
Well, I need to get going. Sylvan Beach is about 10 minutes away and I want to have some quiet time with God by the water before I start. My mom, of course, is worried sick. She told me last week, “I am taking off on Friday to follow you. You will put your backpack in the car, and you will come back home with me.”
Yes, Ma’am, Safety Warden. Hey, you can’t argue with your mother!
I want to share a FB comment a good friend of mine posted this morning:
“Screams out reality series !!! You need an advance team, a follow van, and a video crew. Where are the visionary producers?? This could be as inspirational as the first season of Extreme Home Makeover. Seriously, get a sponsor, it is perfect.”
BTW, Extreme Home Makeover is in our town this week building a house… well near us in Kemah. Funny!
This may be true, but the reality is it’s just me walking with no shoe sponsors, no food sponsors, and no hotel sponsors. I am completely dependent upon the families that I meet along the way to provide food, shelter and, of course, shoes. Otherwise, I would need to pick a different campaign name. J It’s a conscious choice because I want to experience the families that I meet rather than come from some disconnected place of “higher than.”
Am I worried? Not at all. Am I scared? Not at all. I am not alone. God is leading the way. Jesus is walking beside me, and the angels have my back. It also helps when I come from such a strong family who will see to it that this Walk jump starts with a bang!
Talk to you in a few!
