“Of course The Good Story HAD to have a “good story,” Kelly… you didn’t think God was gonna make it smooth and easy, did you?” -says my not helpful friend who will remain anonymous. Actually, yes…I did hope we’d have it smooth and easy because “hard, long and painful” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. But we all know that in order to truly become more like Christ and radiate His nature, we have to be polished through friction, abrasion, pressure, and longevity of trial.
“How was your trip?” is the question we’ve been asked over and over since we returned home from our eight-day trip to Hungary. I know better than to give generic adjectives–”Awesome! Great! Beyond!”–as my answer.
