Prayers are answered in many ways...at a meeting earlier this year, an opportunity arose that I am so excited to share. I will be working this summer. I know, me working? Well, I actually work a lot, but never talk about it. Well, I want to scream this work from the mountains! I will be the craft person at Camp Canonicus this summer. So what? S,this means a summer of sharing God's word and his spirit with children and teenagers from all over and deeming my own faith. It means my children will meet new people, and have experiences we could only have hoped for, and it means that I will get a chance to be in a place I grew up loving...Camp.
There is something about spending time with nature that just makes me feel alive. I have energy, passion, and a love for being at one with all around me. The camp theme from our camp song is "to sense my belonging with all God has made" and I tell you, the experience is just that, grounding and mountaintop, and everywhere in between.
I also have been asked to serve on a team for our denominations state chapter, and I have discovered a renewed love of outreach to the younger generations. I feel that I want my children to grow up to be strong grounded men, and full of the love and compassion of Christ.
So, if I am missing, If I am distant, if I do not wish you a happy birthday, please forgive me as I will be helping young hearts and minds to remember and/or know Christ.
What a blessing...
