Reading Tyson's last blog made me think about words and what the meaning of journey really is. Webster Dictionary defines the word "journey" as
1. a traveling from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time; trip: a six-day journey across the desert.
2. a distance, course, or area traveled or suitable for traveling: a desert journey.
3. a period of travel: a week's journey.
4. passage or progress from one stage to another: the journey to success. –verb (used without object)
When I think of definition #4 I go back to the beginning of the "forleslie blog" and it's purpose. The intention was to call prayer warriors around the world to begin praying for Leslie, Tyson, TJ and their familes. We prayed for the surgeons, caregivers, safety as they traveled back and forth for treatments and appointments. We cried out to God for healing, peace, and understanding.
We watched the progress, we went from one stage to another and in the end or beginning ~ the journey took Leslie to heaven.... the journey of success.
"Well done good and faithful servant" Matthew 25:21
Tyson has been asked to share the story in the form of a book. Pray for him as he takes the words from the blogs and places them on paper. Going forward without Leslie has been hard,
going back won't be easy, but this is her minstry. ginny
