It’s a big week. In two days, the 16th, I leave for a mission trip to Guatemala- the exact one that Lucas went on last year.
In two days it will also be the 6 month anniversary of the day Lucas went to heaven.
As the tears fill my eyes and my brain still wants to push the idea aside and scream NOOOOOOOOOOO! I realize I must accept this. It is so hard to see in print. So. So. hard.
I came to the website to blog not because I was particularly sad and wanted to pour my heart out, but because I want Lucas to be remembered for his LIFE. I want that life and everything it meant to be celebrated on July 16th.
I want Thursday to be a where GOD WINS. What would Lucas want? For us to cry for him and mourn his death?
I don’t think so.
Its a LIVE LIKE LUCAS DAY.
So what are you gonna do about it? First of all if you have an LLL shirt- wear that puppy. With your bracelet of course.
This Thursday is a day of MISSIONS. Yes you can go to Guatemala to do that- I am finally after 36 years going on a real live mission trip and I am pumped. You know who inspired me to do that? Lucas.
Sometimes you just need a little push. Let your little push be LLL day. Here’s a place to start:
A mission can be in your backyard or across the world. It might even be in your own house.
I heard the greatest song yesterday:
With every act of Love- We bring the kingdom come.
