This year, I turned 45. To celebrate, I have decided that I am going to do not one, but two things on my bucket list; ride the Seattle to Portland Bike Classic, and go on a missions trip to Africa.
This blog will document my journey from three different perspectives. The first will be to update you on the progress towards the missions trip I am going to take to Ethiopia. I will post updates on events leading up to, and while I am in, Ethiopia.
The second will be to document my journey on the bike. Training for an event opens your eyes to lessons that not only apply to the event, but to life in general. I will share those perspectives as they come to me.
The last perspective will be my family's journey towards adopting our second child. Many of you have asked me for updates, and this will be a good forum to keep you appraised of our current situation.
I am grateful that you have decided to come along for the ride. As the old saying goes, "It is not the destination, but the journey to get there." I know where I want to go, what I am not certain of is how I am going to get there, or what the destination will be like.
