My Heart is Steadfast

Psalm 57:7
The core of who we are- our heart- should remain true, unwavering despite our fickle emotions. To be steadfast is to be prepared for whatever may come, firmly planted in truth and to be fixed on the hope that He who began a good work will in His goodness follow through with completion.
I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing the journey of @bikescamaction with you. It has been so fun to feel like you are getting a glimpse of what I have been seeing and encountering. So much has been seen on the surface and so much has been done down deep in my soul. @ambermhill and I set out three months ago and determined to not come back to Dallas unchanged. Knowing that feelings demand to be felt and processed, I’m unplugging for a bit. One thing I’m learning more and more, is to live for the moment. It is easy for me to get caught up in capturing the moments; capturing the moments is beautiful and sometimes priceless. There is a time for everything. I’m tossing out my phone for a few weeks and now is my time to engage with some amazing friends and evaluate my journey, this journey we call life. I’m so grateful for the constant support and the love we have encountered. It has changed me. I can not wait to be back in Dallas and reunite with family, friends and my favorite local cafés and restaurants!!! Be back in a couple weeks, Dallas!!! Goodbye East Coast, and hello to the awaiting adventures. 😘 #unplugging #bikescameraaction #corkcancer #maine2florida #goodbyeEastCoast #journey #adventure #okbye #refocus (at Orange Beach Alabama)

Friendship is like a ship that sails through many harsh waves, many ups and downs and keeps on moving forward. Thankful I found this friend to do life with. Thank you @ambermhill for being apart of my story and letting me also join your adventure. Let’s grow old together and look back speechless but still breathing the resounding whisper, “We did it.” I can’t wait to see our lives unfold… #friendship #setsail #wedidit #adventure #journey #everystorymatter #bikescameraaction #biketourfinale #maine2florida #eastcoast #eastcoastgreenwaycomplete #goodbyefloridakeys #soonhelloDallas (at Atlantic Ocean)

Thank you to @marriottbeachside for treating us to a two nights stay to wrap up our journey from Canada to Cuba or Calais, Maine to Mile Zero, Key West, Florida if you want to be technical. We are blown away by your generosity and feel like queens. We are getting the royal treatment and I will have to come back!! Beautiful place!! Pool and ocean view and 3bedroom presidential suite…oh and a couple bottles of champaign…don’t mind if I do. #bikescameraaction #corkcancer #maine2florida #royalty #keywest #marriottbeachside #oceanview #poolside #vacationstartsnow #thankful #journey #adventure #wemadeit #hoteltour #biketour @ambermhill @bikescamaction (at Key West Marriott Beachside Hotel)

God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning]. 
Psalm 46:5

Every morning is a new day to walk in our strengths and embrace God’s grace in our weaknesses. I don’t understand a lot when it comes to God and our purpose here on earth and eternity. I just know that I have a hope and a growing trust that I can’t fully grasp. I can’t explain the protection and provision I have seen in this journey down the East Coast. I can’t explain the transformation that is continuing in my soul as I press on towards the ultimate goal of knowing Christ. And through it all; through all of my questions, doubt, fears, failures, mood swings, and wanderings, I have felt this sense of peace that comes and reminds me that I don’t have to be perfect or have it all together; I have felt a gentle nudge to just take another step. Every day is an opportunity to trust God and depend on His goodness and the hope He offers, believing that He takes our ashes and gives us beauty and our pain and gives us Joy. And usually not the way we think He should or will. Today, we choose to hope. And in our darkest days, the sunrise reminds us of a new opportunity to choose and embrace life. (at Hawks Cay Resort)

We honor you, Joy. We honor you and all the women who have faced or will face the battle with ovarian cancer. And we give voice and will continue to give voice to the silent killer. Morning coffee and sunrise with @ambermhill. Today is our final day towards the end of the east coast of the States. It’s been 81 days since we left Texas and 79 days since we started the bike tour from Calias, Maine where we waved good day to Canada. Tonight we will wave hello to Cuba…from a bit of a distance. #bikescameraaction #corkcancer #maine2florida #biketour #ovariancancerawareness #summer2014 #nocc #journey #adventure #inspire #hope #liveloudly #lovewell #process #girls #florida #sunrise #marathona #lastleg #coffee #morning #friendship #joy  (at Hawks Cay Resort)
