My photographers have done a good job catching some of the outside activity for the kids.
I shot some before breakfast and of some of our darling little kids….complete with face paint for the day. (This is something new to me…but those of you who have been LONG at the camp life maybe knows WHY they do this???)
This morning as we joined hands in the kitchen to pray before the cooking began, my mind went back to the devotion I had somewhere around 1 a.m. I woke fully—and knew that there was Someone wanting some quiet time. Since the wee hours of the morning is when everything is the quietest—HE knows this is the best time to corner me up for some conversation….not that I have to be cornered. But maybe you’ve been there. Or here. In this place of busy life.
In the place of “busy life” you begin to brush your teeth and suddenly remember you left the iron on, or the water running in the kitchen …and you dash off to tend to that leaving the toothbrush waiting with paste—and the water running…finding the iron hot and a clean shirt ready to be pressed you begin, then suddenly decide you needed to take you vitamins and quickly step to the kitchen and turn the water off, grab the vitamins and remember you were going to brush your teeth…
Maybe a bit of it was exaggerated, but just know it’s pretty busy here. If I see you in Wal-Mart and fail to speak, it could very well be that I didn’t see you at all…maybe my mind was wandering back to the morning devotion, or the tooth paste…did I put the lid back on the tube??
Okay, enough. I’m exhausted enough with the day spent in food—let’s get on with the slide show. I would like to say one more thing…IF you have Oswald Chambers, “My Utmost For HIS Highest”, I recommend keeping a journal close by. When you read the daily devotions, I imagine you will hear from your Father as I have been hearing…listen close…He speaks in the quiet times.
