the cowboys are coming
Hi. Not much has changed circumstancially for me, but much has changed in my mind, for which I'm thankful.
"It's an interesting thing, the human mind, "say authors Bill and Kahty Peel in their book Discover Your Destiny, "It can only focus on a couple of things at a time. When we're preoccupied with a problem and focus on our own indadquacy to handle it, there's really no room to add God to the picture. The ability to think rationally returns only when we refocus on God's adequacy." -Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World - Joanna Weaver.
I wrote this on Sunday (what is above)..
It's now Thurs. night and I have enjoyed this week sharing my testimony with people at the campfire and being prayed for (very encouraging), a few swims in the lake (including one morning swim with the loons - took awhile to warm up - not going in that early again) and one swim with dragonflies, having pancake breakfast with people at camp (brought our own whole wheaters). Things have been vroom-vroomish and Andy is working lots. We have been skipping the evening campfire lately as we are needing more time at home. Campers come on Sunday, I believe they are the youngest ones ages 9-11 or something.
We still could use a first aid person and a cook in the kitchen. If you think of anyone, pass on the info www.camptulahead.com. These are paid positions.
Did some 'extra' work as filming was taking place for camp video. Sarah and I are in the background of one scene smelling flowers. Very hot and sunny here.
Oh, yes, Sarah and I went on a motorboat ride...ok, the highlight was seeing my friend Cherise who was helping out in the kitchen at the other camp near Princeton - RockRidge CAnyon (Young Life Camp). She went 'sea biscuiting' and Sarah and I got to be spotters - a wild ride. Very hot day...20 min. walk/hike out to the lake out there, amazing canyon place, windy (think mild dust storm in parking lot), our sunscreen worked good and boy were we lathered up.
Yeah. We get a post office box VERY SOON! We have to buy a pad lock to put on it first (small town eh?).
Written on Fri.:
There is a new stove and a DISHWASHER in our carport. Our stove is fine but camp was donated another one, so we're to install it at some point. And the dishwasher was a total shock...a midsized KitchenAid one. Wow. Part of me is like, "Oh, it's going to wreck our dishes." We don't know if our house is all equipped with the pipes etc. for the dishwasher, but we'll see...and Andy will have to have some time to install it at some point.
Today is "Princeton Racing Days" - horse racing with bets and all...we'll miss it as it's near nap time - 2 pm.
Now we're into town to go to the post office etc!!
