Saturday, my older brother Greg arrived from Massachusetts to visit with me for the weekend.
We hadn’t been able to spend any time together since Jeff passed away, and we were both needing that one-on-one time. I thought I’d try to explain the trip and my experiences to him before I mailed out those forms. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be talked out of going or not.
Greg arrived with a National Geographic magazine that he finished on his trip over. He immediately began to explain to me the importance of restructuring the wetlands around the Gulf Coast and New Orleans to act as a natural buffer between water storms and inland areas.
It was at this point, I had to finally consider myself thoroughly God-smacked. I finally got the message. There was no doubt I was going to New Orleans in October.
