all because

There are times when God totally blows my mind with how well He can orchestrate an event and bring together a group of people to make something great and awesome and fun happen!
Today is one of those days!
First day of Bible Memory Camp is in the books and it was awesome!
We have...
Had so much fun.
Been enlightened by the teaching of God's Word.
Challenged to be a missionary wherever our feet take us.
Shot arrows and bb's at targets.
Played games together.
Made new friends.
Been reacquainted with old friends.
Swam in almost too warm of water.
Fought noodle wars.
Played in the sand.
Heard a story of how God uses the events of our lives that we sometimes don't understand (or make a mess of ourselves) to accomplish His will in the end in spite of it all.  All for His glory.
Enjoyed the company of 25 other people all here for the same purpose of getting to know God better, hear His voice, and having tons of fun doing it!
And, so much more...
All because He loves us so much.

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
