@ camp

(One little guy’s method for socializing at camp)

This week I’m at camp.  As a high-schooler, I wished for it to last all summer- or at least, more than one week!  As staff now, I understand why it’s a week long…and I’m glad!

But paradoxically, it’s more fun to be staff- to be worn out by Saturday morning as we load up to go home, to wish for a few more minutes of sleep, to take a turn at monitoring the waterslide, cleaning restrooms, and helping kids into the paddle boats.  To be staff is also to pray for camp months in advance, to watch kids learn to follow Jesus in prayer and in play, and to have those conversations that shape young hearts and minds.

So wherever you are this week, and whatever you’re doing, enjoy it.  Pray for me and my kids, enjoy eating non-camp food, and have a heart-shaping conversation.  We’ll all be better off by Saturday.
