For the past few days my blog server has been under attack. Terrible, right? They seem to have things under control now, but I missed showing up with you here! There's been lots going on at camp, at home and in my heart, some of which I look forward to sharing with you! For today...
I share a recent picture of our family. I love these people! Quirks and all! Our road together in camp ministry can feel challenging at times, exhausting for sure, but most definitely worth it! I'm thankful to do life with them! Thankful to be at this place in the journey with them. Let me be honest for a second, there have been times I wasn't sure we'd be here together! Thanks be to God for His continued faithfulness in our lives, thanks to many along the journey who have been used to help us along, thanks to the hemming in of God's grace, we are here together as a family!
I share this knowing some reading here may not have a family picture like this. Brokenness or loneliness may seem the only family you have. Can I just encourage you? First, your story isn't done being written. Second, God sees you and gets it. He moves heaven and earth to rescue you when you run to Him (Psalm 18). He won't leave you undone, He won't abandon you. Allow Him to hem you in with His grace.
Wherever you are in your journey, be thankful for the beauty of today. Your life will feel more beautiful with gratitude on your lips! I'm glad you stopped in today.
