Road Trippin’ to Frostburg
On Thursday I took a nice long drive through Maryland–from La Plata to Frostburg. (If MD looks like a raggedy pistol, I started at the trigger and ended up near the pistol tip.) The mountains were really incredible. I forget how much I’m an introvert until I have these long-drives to myself that shoot energy into my veins. And with a hot Volkswagon stick-shift that isn’t even mine! (Thanks, Patty.)
I drove up to Frostburg State University to share my story with the nice folks at Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. The unexpected sharing-deal came through some cute little connections with people, and IVCF being open to all kinds of guests.
I talked a lot about pain, healing, and the Psalms. And that we all have a story to share, and when we do, we’re inviting God to do the same good things in the lives of people around us.
I tried my best to put aside the fact that it didn’t make much sense to drive almost 7 hours to talk for only 20 minutes. It was nice to hang out with some of them at a diner afterwards. (I really love diners.) I hope that I’ll keep getting to know a one or two of the gals through the wonders of email/Facebook. And oh! someone even gave me two of their favorite CDs for my drive home!
It was a nice little break from the pace of things.
