week nine: thursday.

i have to leave in four minutes. sorry for totally lying about a long entry last time. it’ll have to wait until saturday.

things are going well for the most part, but we have some tough kids this week that simply don’t know how to be respectful. gus and i are doing our best, but right now there’s no time to be sentimental about it being the last week because we keep reminding the kids to act nicely.

they’re still good kids. and you know what? tomorrow is the last full day i get with ANY kids here at camp. so i’m going to make the most of it.

i’ll close with one of the most encouraging passages i’ve encountered. i’ve read it before, but today/this week it really struck a chord.

“for this reason i kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. i pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. and i pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
– ephesians 3:16-19

amen.

    Glad you are truly savoring these last moments. It seems like a great blend of nostalgia and happiness, as well as focus and drive.
    I also like Colossians 2:7, which is similar to that verse: “Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
