Sick - Sick - Sick!

It's a sad, sad day when you go to the BEACH and get sick.

Sunday, July 17th
To Do:
- Go to Church
- Go to the Beach
- Relax

Actual
Go to the Beach - swim in the rain
Go to Publix - Wet and cold

Yep - I swam in the rain, went to publix and froze.

Flash Forward!

Tuesday, July 26th

Daily Activities!
Go to the doctor
get a bunch of meds
go to work
drink a ton of water
SLEEEEEPY!

The moral of my whiney post?

1) Stay warm - don't go to publix when you are already wet AND cold.
2) Go to the doctor early!

Happy Summer!

Oops! - I guess I forgot to blog?

Blogging is such a relaxing thing - and yet, I forget to blog.
It's sad isn't it?

Since my last blog a lot has changed.
The biggest changes have been the changes in my heart though.

1) A Heart for Ministry
Chris and I have been thinking and praying a lot, and we truly felt that we wanted to do more for the Lord. The Lord has really been working on us, in fact! We had the opportunity to collaborate with another young couple with a heart for outreach and developed The Bonanza!

The BTC 2011 Bonanza

Complete with:
- Neighborhood outreach
(Several Saturdays before the event, we passed out fliers and invited members of the community)

- A clear gospel message

- Free Food

- A WHOLE lot of fun

- Relationship building

- Did I mention we had snow cones and cotton candy?

Anyway, you get the point!

It was so encouraging to work with all of the believers in the assembly to put together an outreach.

Praise the Lord!

2) A Heart for Camp.

I used to feel that although I LOVED camp, I often felt that it was a little bit of just a responsibility to the camp ministry.

Who can blame me right? - I mean, I lived thier for like the 9 most influential years of my life ...

This year, I realized something that I never realized before.
Although my feelings of responsibility to camp may be sincere, it wasn't until Christopher said to me one night (completely out of the blue) "You have such a heart for camp, we should do more" ...

That comment sparked a revelation in me.

(Seriously!)

A heart for others, a heart for camp and a heart for ministry.

OBVIOUSLY!

It is time to get out there and do MORE for the LORD!

I know that most of my blogs, and stories and other life events are often rambled, jumbled and maybe a bit confusing. However, if you made it to the end of this ...

...

My encouragement to you is to serve the Lord with all your might.

Colossians 3: 22 - 25
Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever your do, do in your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will recieve the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For he who does wrong will recieve the consequenses of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.
