Summer is here….
As Walt said recently…summer really begins on Memorial Day…even if it is mid-June before the calendar really agrees…but I think we all agree that when JUNE begins…it is summer time!
Workcamp is underway this week. Final touches for VBS are underway this week….and we are beginning to turn up the heat on getting ready for CAMP!
Sarah Young write in her “Jesus Calling” book for June 1st----“I (Jesus) am involved in each moment of your life. I have carefully mapped out every inch of your journey through this day, even though much of it may feel haphazard. Because the world is in a fallen condition, things always seem to be unraveling around the edges. Expect to find trouble in this day. At the same time, trust that MY WAY is perfect , even in the midst of such messy imperfection.
Stay conscious of ME as you go through this day, remembering that I never leave your side. Let the Holy Spirit guide you step by step, protecting you from unnecessary trials and equipping you to get through whatever must be endured. As you trudge through the sludge of this fallen world, keep your mind in heavenly places with ME. Thus the light of My Presence shines on you , giving you Peace and Joy that circumstances cannot touch.”
Light and Love to a dying World.
Yesterday…we went to Hanauma Bay to snorkel…so that means…we got some sun (high yesterday was 92) and we were drained last night!
We drove around the south end of the island…and saw the “blow hole” and some great scenery. Visited Kailua and then took the Pali Highway back to Waikiki. We had some family time and a devotional---walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner…and then we were back to the rooms to rest our sun drained bodies!
I got up around 6 am this morning…while the rest are sleeping….and I am now watching the “western edition of Good Moring America”---and learning more about the bankrupt filing of GM. It appears the Spring Hill plant is going Idle. Not sure if that means it will close or what the future will bring. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of those impacted by the news today.
Got a couple of emails yesterday…Melinda McInteer…Walt Leaver and Adam Brown….
Did you really wake up and listened to Brentwood Hills' late service this morning at 5:30 AM? That is dedication! The only church service that I will attend that early in the morning is at the Mattress Springs Church of Christ! The pews are so comfortable, and the sermon always puts me to sleep.
Tell Benjamin hello and that I found roofballs for camp. I posted them on his Facebook page but I'm not sure if he's been able to see them.
Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
Thanks Adam for getting the roof balls…and for following the Journey!
Time to post today’s Journey…and to get ready for another day in Hawaii! Have a great Journey! ALOHA!
