oh so busy...

my only excuse for not posting since june 9 is that i have been busy. very, very, very busy. super busy, in fact.

i am happy to report that vbs AND camp are over and even happier to report that according to those who participated, they were both quite successful. (it's nothing for me to say they're successful...i planned them...i'm a little biased, i think.) i had planned to possibly write out a long recap for each event but to be honest with you, i'm still a little tired from all the fun i've been having over the last 4 weeks so i'll sum it up this way:

vbs: outrigger island, we had between 750 and 800 every night, learning about God's unshakable Truth, it was a BLAST!

camp: we packed 85 people in buses and drove to anderson, sc, for student life for kids camp. the theme was, the way, and it was phenomenal. 8 of our kids came to know Christ for the first time while every one else was challenged to truly walk the narrow way through this life. no one was seriously hurt and everyone seemed to have a great time. including all the roaches ;).

so there you have summer in a nutshell. i'm going to carowinds today to spend the whole day floating in the lazy river.

until next time (which i think will be tomorrow...i have an overdue post about someone who is all around just the best thing. ever. and i seriously do mean...the best thing. ever. EVER :).

when you don't have anything to say...

so i have a lot to say but not a lot to share with the blog world but i feel bad that i haven't posted anything since may 20th. i decided that since i don't really have any fun stories or witty thoughts to share with you, i'd share some Scripture because it has way more to say and definitely expresses what i'm thinking way better than i ever could! the last verse is definitely one of my favorites and has been since my freshman year of college but right now, especially, i am so thankful for the promises found in that's like a resting place for my heart.

"find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, i will not be shaken. my salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge." ~psalm 62:5-8

"if the LORD delights in a man's way, He makes his steps firm;
though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand." ~psalm 37:23-24

"do you not know? have you not heard? the LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." ~isaiah 40:28-31

"the LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." ~zephaniah 3:17
