This post was up this morning on the amazing site Stuff Christians Like.
Did you notice the 3rd sentence?
4.25.2010: Here’s a little background info. I read #575. Refusing the gift of the desert road on SCL maybe 2 months ago or so. Because of where I was/am/have been for the last 3 years in life, it moved me. It hit close to home and really blessed my heart. And because of who I am, I wanted to write Jon a letter (a real letter, not an email). I wanted to tell him how thankful I was for what he had written. To hear such encouragement from someone in a similar situation meant the world me, and I wanted him to know that. I told him my story, that I was working in a school, but I really wanted to be freeing slaves. Now, I realize it’s possible that he knows another girl who wants to be an abolitionist but is currently a school teacher, but I like to think he read my letter and was encouraged by it and used it on a Saturday in April to inspire other people to start thinking about their “things.” I could be wrong, but I’m going to believe I’m right.
