Summer 2010

Challenges of the summer.

The first challenge for the summer was attending Jr. High Camp with our church! Really it was no challenge, but I didn't know how working with the Jr. High kids would be. God has shown me they need the silliness of life before they too start facing the challenges of this world. So for the summer I have decided to work with the Jr High ministry and see if I can give them a little silliness and love. Not sure what God has in store for this new challenge, but I feel the tug at my heart, so I'm jumping in!

I'm starting to read, The Reason for God by Timothy Keller. Just in the preface I'm realizing this book could an amazing read. I'm not sure how much I will be able to dive in, but I'm going to give it a shot. The very first part is already shedding some light from some of those questions in life that you just seem to question, but not really question. Can there be just one true religion? So you see how deep this book will be and I'm hoping I can stay with it.

The third challenge of the summer has come with the health issue.... again. My mother has cancer again.... yes.... again. This will be the 4 time and 3 kind of cancer. She is an amazing fighter for life! I feel God's comfort with this area.... I'm not sure if it's because I have given it up the Lord or because I'm not facing it. But for now I'm at peace with it. But once again my memory seems to be leaving so the blogging must start again. We had a wonderful day swimming with her and all the grandkids. It was a good day.

The fourth challenge of the summer will be my floors.... they are a mess and I am going to try to make a plan and attack them. This may fail, but I'm sick of them and something must be done!

So summer... here I come!
