So today marks the close of day 7 of my 13-day road trip.
There have been some “bumps” along the way (that’s another post), but it has been FILLED with highs as well.
Jon Acuff wrote a great post the other day about what our dreams should feel like, illustrated by the perfect picture of his sister’s reaction to the ice cream truck when they were younger. (Read it here.)
That is how I have felt the last few days.
Surrounded by orphan advocates and adoptive families. Sharing stories of adoption, encouraging them in their fundraising process.
It is better than any drug-induced high could ever be.
Total confirmation that this IS my dream. Writing, speaking, encouraging adoptive families.
AND, as if that wasn’t enough, there was this…
Dave came out of the studio on a break to meet with people and Martha introduced me. He was so kind and gracious. I asked him if he would sign a copy of my book, right by his endorsement.
The lovely Stacy Kennedy was snapping photos like crazy.
There it is.
And, if you’re wondering, here’s what Romans 12:2 says…
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
Tomorrow I’m meeting with a woman from Show Hope, then some sightseeing and then it’s the start of the Quitter Conference. Cannot wait to soak it all in! I’m sure my twitter feed will be blowing up with awesomeness that I’m learning tomorrow and Saturday.
