Last night several women joined me to help make the posters and clouds for the memory walk which will take place a week from Saturday in our small town in Kentucky. 

Clouds will line the route, bearing names of those we love who are “surrounding” us from above.  My dream is for this race to remind people that even though we have had to say “bye” temporarily to many whom we love, they are still with us in a powerful way…

cheering us on!!

I am so thankful the BIble includes Hebrews 12:1-2,

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,

let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.

For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,

and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God

This walk/run is being hosted by Nick’s Foundation and will provide help in purchasing memory box supplies.  A portion of the proceeds will also be going to diabetes research in memory of a sweet girl named Snowy Hall who was killed in  a car accident two years ago.  Funds will also be shared with a family in our town whose daughter is facing multiple surgeries in the near future.5k memories 002
