All Wrapped Up in One

So, it seems that I have been a terrible blogger the past two months, but I have good reason. I haven't had a second to breathe let alone type out all of my summertime adventures. Don't get me wrong, I have had an amazing summer so far; one of the best I've ever had. Let me update you one just how busy I have been the past few months.

June: I finished up training week and boy was it a blast! I made some great friends and I feel like the relationships I formed this year are more deep and meaningful then last summer. These are GREAT people I'm working with. I prayed that God would send me some good friends to work with and He did. I began my summer camps with a week specifically for kids with Muscular Dystrophy. Wow, changed my life and my perspective on life. My girls were amazing and I thank God every day for bringing each and every one of them into my life. I love them still with all of my heart! <3 The second camp in June that I worked was a camp for all different kinds of children. I had a cabin of 7 girls and we were FULL of energy. We laughed and had a blast all week long. I miss them so much and can't wait to see them again next summer.
July: I turned 18!!! haha It was a great birthday, even spent away from camp. My family went on a small vacation for it and I found out I am going to one of my favorite artists concerts at the end of July. ECSTATIC!!!!! I finished up my first camp of July last week and it was a Diabetes camp. This was my favorite week last summer and it was a fantastic one this year. I have never sang more Taylor Swift then I did last week and though my throat suffered I wouldn't trade one jam session for anything in the world. Those girls were a blessing in my life and I love love love love them soooooo much!!! :)

So, Sunday I ship out again and this time it is another camp that has multiple special needs. I can't wait to arrive and see what wonderful campers I have. God has a new adventure for me this week and I'm super excited to see what it is all about!

There is the update, hopefully I will be more disciplined in the future, but with me moving in to college in 21 days I doubt that. haha That is another adventure all in itself! :) Thanks for reading!

A Poem

In the future I’ll be a knight,

Bold and fearless; marching on.

Fighting to defend and fighting to protect,

The majestic King and His unending reign.

Denying the evil and seeking the good,

Crossing my sword against the wicked.

Joining the Master in all that He does,

And suiting for battle until He returns.

I wrote this poem for a writing assignment where I had to start with "In the future I'll be..." After I wrote it I began to think about how the things I mentioned shouldn't be looked at in a future tense. If I am the Lord's Child then I should be doing these things now, right?
Living for today is something I have been working on lately. I am striving to take each precious day I'm given and live it for the Lord. There is so much I could do more in each day, but I'm taking it one step at a time. I feel like if my world becomes accustomed to living this way, then I'll be ready for any task, big or small, that He brings my way.
So, instead of making this a look into the future...I am making my knighthood something of everyday...starting today! :)

A New Project!!!!

Hey readers!!! My dear friend came to me a few months ago letting me know that God had laid on her heart to start a website/blog dedicated to young women who want more than the American Dream's view of Christianity. We both prayed about it and we have decided to tackle this project for God together! We are going to be a group of several young women in one great blogspot called "Radical Love". We are planning to get it up and going in the next few days. We are so excited about this venture and I hope that you will all pray for the authors of the blog and I hope that you will all follow us! : ) Thanks for reading!
