Giving Thanks . . . Summer Camp Edition

Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder the things of the past.
Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43:18-19, NASB

Continuing to count His gifts and grace . . .

1337  birthday phone call from a friend far away
1338  text messages from friends, cousins, mother-in-law
1339  kids pitching in to help, making the work go quickly
1340  husband helping me get the kids ready to go
1341  her laughter as she tells the story
1342  patient kids, no complaining over the wait for the broken-down bus
1343  lightning storm
1344  cold wind blowing through
1345  the kindness of the camp staff
1346  a toothbrush & toothpaste!
1347  high school students loving on my firstborn, first-time camper
1348  cloud cover during the day
1349  clear, starlit night
1350  spending time with students, unplugged
1351  grass growing again after drought
1352  flowers growing straight up out of rock
1353  side-by-side with students & my firstborn on the Sherpa trail
1354  students coming with question after question
1355  their wonder at His Word
1356  hungry hearts
1357  hearing them process the awesome vastness of God
1358  hands lifted in praise
1359  river baptisms
1360  our faithful youth minister who prays and serves and loves like Jesus
1361  youth staff who continue to pour themselves out
1362  camp pastor who loves students and the Word
1363  driving home 5 hours - time with my dad
1364  that my boy-child loved every moment at his camp
1365  prayers for him answered beyond my wildest expectation 
1366  this hope:  that God is doing something new

The people I formed for Myself
will declare My praise.
Isaiah 43:21, NASB
