One of the aspects that I most enjoy about Hollow Rock each year is serving in the youth program. While the spiritual growth that comes from meditating on the Word and being reminded of the basic doctrines and their applications and is real and important, the greatest source for me of growth and renewal comes from the opportunity to serve others. Spending time with the teens, staff and other campers is great, but even more so when I get the privilege of serving them and meeting their needs.
It’s too early in the morning. Rather, it’s too late in the day but another is here and it’s not going away. I’ve been working on a project all night and I just got my second wind about 30 minutes ago. When I hit an impasse and my brain tries to quit (::stop that, it’s only half-time!::), it’s all I can do to keep my tongue in check. I’ve run this test to death and still can’t quite seem to get all of the bugs out. Arrggghhhh!!!!!
Oh well. Everything’s okay. It will all turn out fine. At least, I keep reminding myself that God is faithful and strengthens us. I sure need it now.
Only two more days until camp meeting. I can hardly wait. However, I learned a long time ago that the few days before an “event” are no less important than those at the event. I need to remember to take it slow and not rush. I’ll be able to enjoy camp more that way.
I just pray that there are no last minute surprises at the meeting this morning. Those usually mean more work and that’s the last thing I need two days before camp!
Btw, you are more than welcome to join us!
