A daily journal of a solo, unsupported cross country bicycle trip in memory of Eric Okerblom to raise awareness of cell distracted driving.
Dr. Bob, a good friend who know what I'm struggling with right now, and you know too... they were extremely encouraging to me. I hope and pray they will encourage you too. I believe it with all of my heart. "In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed" (1 Peter 1:6-7). The reason this is a comfort to me is because I so want my faith to shine brighter than my grief, though I feel a failure at it so often. Praying your day is going well today as you continue to trek through the awesome dessert with your friends. Love and Hugs...ShannonB
