First of all - thank you for all of your kind words yesterday. It’s encouraging that when I use this blog as an outlet for my questions and pondering about why God is the way he is or why he does what he does - you respond. It’s good to know others have felt, or do feel, the same way. It’s also humbling to remember - This is a job (!!) This is not the end of the world. This pales in comparison to the struggles of many. And, while the situation is vastly different, I hope my words can ring true in varying situations.
All that being said - I consider myself an optimist and I pick up my life with joy and I keep moving on. Doing what God has asked me to do... So what is that for today?
Today I respond by taking 50 energetic middle school and high school students away on a four day retreat. (Good grief - NOT by myself - but with other capable/willing volunteers)...
So - I’ll be away from my computer and will be unable to respond to all of your sweet and lovely comments (thank you!!). I like to be a dutiful blogger and respond to everyone who comments - so... If it doesn’t happen right away I WILL be going through and checking in on all that I missed when I return!
Until then... I’m submerged in camp.
