Important Information

To start with...My beliefsMy beliefs are a good place to start, since what I believe in is what started me wanting to take this journey. I believe that the universe was created by one supreme being, our God. I believe that the world was created in literal 6 days with our Lord resting on the 7th day. By literal, I mean 7 - 24 hour periods. I believe in Adam and Eve and the fall. This is not how creation was meant to be, but because of Adam and Eve's sin there is now darkness in the world. I believe that God sent his one and only Son to bring us life. I believe that Jesus died and rose again in 3 days to bring us healing and forgiveness of our sins. As I walk, I am going fully expecting to be awed and amazed by God's creation surrounding me. I am going out in fear, but also excitedly expectant. I would be foolish to not realize the dangers in doing this, but I will trust that if this is God's will, then He will protect me. Speaking of God's will, this is still not a definate thing. I am waiting to meet with my Pastors and get their discernment on this. I do believe that in order to have God's protection, I do need to be sent.

The Whys sort of
At church every year we do a carnival type thing (Celebration Fest)for the people in the Sheridan Parkside Community. It is all free, food, backpacks with school supplies, haircuts, games, basket raffles. I felt a need to walk the nieghborhood and pray once a week for 4 weeks leading up to the Celebration Fest. While doing this, I really got a sense of the importance of actually walking while praying and symbolically taking back the land.

So sitting here one day, the thought came to me...I should walk coast to coast. I prayed about it and read up everything I could find online about doing this. Two weeks ago at church, I was sitting at the alter during worship wondering what this was all about. I felt like God was just lining up everything for me step by step. I saw building blocks being set before me one by one, all in a line. When this idea came to me at first, I had thought about what charity I would support by doing this (felt like I had to be doing this for somebody other than myself). I had come up with several good charities, but nothing felt like the perfect match in my spirit. Well worship ended, I went back to my seat and Pastor Dan called two women up to speak. They were starting a clinic to "Empower people to make informed decisions about their pregnancy" called Northtown Pregnancy Center. This felt like the perfect fit for me, this is who I wanted to donate to (maybe also the blind center too). It was like one more building block being placed in line. I will let you know more about the Northtown Pregnancy Center once we have a chance to really sit down and talk.

Read on FB today and want this to become my anthem. (there was no author cited, so not sure who it is by)... Life is a journey with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all experiences to enjoy!

How to Comment
Some people have told me they had problems commenting. I played a little and this is what I figured out (I am certainly not an IT genius, so someone might have better ideas here) Where it says Comment As, pick Name/URL, type your name and your e-mail address with a dot where the @ usually goes. Ex. =

This is all new to me, so I will keep figuring it out as I go and if anyone knows more than I do about blogging (that is just about everyone) I welcome your suggestions!!
