This, admittedly, could be a bittersweet trip for me. I have not been back to Seattle since Jeff passed away and I know from hearing about Brad’s trip out there, that memories will be front and center. But the biggest lesson I’ve learned so far on this journey, and I’m sure this lesson will never end, is that I have to step far out of my comfort zone, face my fears, and do what I have to do. Our family has been given a big assignment from God and He has promised to give us courage and strength to rise to the occasion. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” “Be strong and of good courage. Do not fear nor be afraid; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” So I’m off to book a flight and make arrangements to stay with our family in the Seattle area. They have graciously opened their home, the use of their car and to feed me! Yet another blessing in the life of our Foundation. I cannot wait for my visit with Liz Truong at the Seattle Transplant House. Big things are ahead!
