Tonight was the support raising benefit Stephen and I had been working on for a while.
I can tell you that it is a special blessing to look out on a crowd of smiling faces and know, without a doubt, that the people smiling are there because they love you. So much stinkin’ love in that room!!
I just spent 10 minutes trying to catalog all of my favorite moments, but that’s just not how I write. Here’s what I CAN say about tonight: I pray that may retain the memories of how many arms held me, lips kissed me, and faces smiled at me. I pray I can remember that I am not just loved with the all-surpassing, mind-blowing affection of the Creator of the Universe, but he has even decided to bless me with countless (literally, countless) others who love and support me.
Thank you, everyone who came out. Thank you, everyone who prayed. Thank you, everyone who loves me. Thank you, Sweet and Gracious Father.
