Walking

It is time again … my third trip to walk in a 3-Day (www.the3day.org) event for Breast Cancer Research, my second time to walk in San Diego!  I’m excited for the trip. 
Every year we participate in this walk I have so many thoughts as the days near to leave on our journey …

  • I am thankful for my health and that I am able to walk 60 miles in honor and memory of those who can’t
  • I am reminded of my friends, family of friends, and friends who have been impacted in their circles by Breast Cancer
  • I am grateful for those who so generously contribute to make this journey possible.  I represent you every step of the way. 
  • I am hopeful that one day Breast Cancer won’t be a concern among women, that my nieces and daughters of my friends might not face this disease
  • I am prayerful for safety throughout the trip – flights, on the walk, in camp and against any injury
  • I am encouraged by a SURVIVOR on our team, and looking forward to getting to know her better and the work she is doing through Komen
  • I am proud to be a part of an event that is making a difference in the lives of women across our country

A walk for me always is representative of everyday life.  You have to get up, get into your gear – whatever that looks like for you, and hit the pavement to accomplish your task one foot in front of the other.  For these 3 days, my task is to walk 60 miles, camp out at night, and make a difference in a cause.  When I get home, my task returns to normal, however the mission remains the same.  To walk everyday in faith, in thankfulness, and in obedience to what I have been called. 

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. It gave me great joy to have some brothers come and tell about your faithfulness to the truth and how you continue to walk in the truth.  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”  3 John 1:2-4

Step by step,
Angie
