This is always an odd blog to write, for not many people read it. If you are one of the few that do, you are a kindred spirit. You love camp, just like me. You probably get an email that lets you know that a new blog has been posted and you open it rather than trash it (or unsubscribe). You might even miss camp tomorrow, just like me, so today let’s look back for a moment and appreciate what is past.
I have written the blog every morning since June 3. That is about seventy days… enough time to establish a routine that I enjoy very much. The Blog encourages me to notice the good of camp and share those observations in two ways: prayer and blog. The delight and inspiration of camp are abundantly clear when the campers and counselors are here. Those moments are nonstop… for camp is a 24-hour-a-day 7-day-a-week experience formed by the people who call it home. When a moment occurs, I pray (just thanking God and including Him in the moment). I also take an hour out of the day to write… and that is the role of the Blog. To share the delight and inspiration with you, the benefactors of camp.
My Thoughts On The Summer
This summer was delightfully easy.
The renovations were appreciated, each making camp better for the girls.
I entered this summer expecting it to be our best summer ever. It was.
I look back on the past few months with a profound sense of gratitude… The Lord knew we were tired after those Covid years… Thank You, Jesus!
It is very hard to say how it could have been better. 104 is in the books, and it will be a year to remember fondly.
So we close this chapter of camp history with a profound sense of gratitude.
Thank you for reading… it has been a pleasure.
