This is the week my kids wait for all year long! And don’t tell, but we kind of love it too. Sunday we will be heading to New Braunfels to drop our kids off for a week at camp. One week away with no technology and lots of Jesus! One week for me to have zero carpool duty! I’m telling you the summer has been just a little more wild than past summers and I’m so looking forward to a quiet house, no need to cook and a house that may stay orderly for a bit.
Of course being the procrastinator I am, I always wait until the last minute to prepare for camp! Thankfully Dillon now packs for himself and doesn’t really care to participate in theme nights but Carly Jo is not the slightest bit entertained by my lack of planning. This year one night has a circus theme and I was so impressed she decided on dressing as an elephant and has it all planned out; pink tutu, grey t-shirt and elephant ears on a headband. Surely I can pull this off right?
Right now I’m waiting on my mind to rest a bit. Do you ever have those times when you just cannot shut off your brain? I’m in that place right now. I know it is partially due to some news I am waiting on which I have zero control over but is pulling hard at my heart every time I let my mind wander. Literally I have probably never prayed as hard as I have been praying and literally cannot sleep without begging God to help me to trust his plan and turn it all over if only for the night. I found this verse and it is what I’m holding onto today.
But now Lord what do I look for? My hope is in you -Psalm 39:7
And y’all, I wrote this post last night but woke up this morning and found this waiting for me in the Jesus Calling book for July 19th. When things like this happen I feel so emotional and humbled and wrapped in God’s love because I know he is my one true hope.
Now, tell us what you have been up to!
