Camp and other thoughts

I'm such a slacker, a whole month with nothing written from little 'ole me.  It is probably because I've packed a lot into this past month.

Camp was the highlight of June.  Our church took about 180, 5th/6th graders to camp.  It was a good week.  It was so fun to see these kids in worship, singing at the top of their lungs and then watching them listening intently to some great speakers.  We had kids come to know the Lord personally and some other kids just enjoy having a week to focus on their Savior.  Don't get me wrong, we didn't spend every moment learning about God, we had lots of outdoor fun too.  Zipline, hiking, rock wall, swimming, canoeing, fishing are some of the activities that kept them busy.  There were lots of tired campers on the bus ride back home! We returned home on Friday and by Sunday  (after I gotten some sleep) I was ready to go back!  Can't wait until next year.

I realized last week that this year is half over.  Yikes, Christmas will be here before we know it!  I am in awe of how God is blessing my life and continues to take care of me.  Recently someone asked me to share my grief journey and how I was doing now.  I'm not done writing it, but as I began, I couldn't help but remember where I was almost two years ago compared to where I am now.  God is truly a great Savior, Healer, Sustainer, Provider, and Lover.  Everything I need. I've realized in the past years that if you strive for happiness in anything but God, you will continue to do just that, strive, never achieving true happiness and contentment.  The things of this world will fade, only God is eternal.  That is my mini sermon for the day.

Other than hanging out with friends and family and other random things going on my life, it is pretty much status quo.  Looking forward to July and the fun in store for that month.  My social calendar is already filling up!
