Blog Your Blessings Sunday
Thursday night at our camp campfire, the speaker asked, to every ones surprise, the staff to share how God has been working in their lives. Knowing the staff, I thought it would be like pulling teeth to get anything out of them. To my delight, one by one the young adults shared insights they have learned and how important their relationship to God was. I was overwhelmed as each one talked. All but three that stood up to talk were former youth group kids (of the three who weren't youth kids, one was a former camper from years back from another church and another one was an employee at Cruisers who has joined our church within the past two years.) It was one of the high points of the week, the year and maybe the high point of the past 5 years. I was very pleased. At the end of the campfire I couldn't hold back the tears. I want to tell all who read this that I have been blessed to have had an opportunity to impart my life with these great kids (adults).
