We just finished our first official George Camp of the summer! It was North Carolina’s first camp, and we are excited about the possibilities it holds for us in the future. The kids loved it, and it served as a great run-through for us to prepare for our other camps in Fayetteville, Georgia and Miami, Florida. If you live in either of those areas, please come by and see us! Georgia residents can sign up here, and our Miami friends can sign up for Kidz Camp on the same week that we lead.
Interested in how our week looked? Here is a brief video with just a few pictures that capture the energy and fun within the camp!
My mum is always requesting songs, but I hardly get around to doing less than half of them. I’ve spent some time filming, so here is Keep Making Me by the Sidewalk Prophets!
CS Lewis once said “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
It’s so true! We complain about heartache, but pain is better than a hard heart. We are clay in the hands of our Father, and sometimes that clay needs to be smashed in order to be rebuilt. I do not want to be lonely, empty, or broken, but if it is necessary for the will of God and my walk with Him, so be it. The Lord makes beautiful things out of us, and He is still making me.
