Today starts set-up week for camp #3.
As much as I love it, I must also say that with each new day comes new challenges. For example, today was the most bizarre day of them all.
On the way to Troy, MO from St. Louis, Macy and I took two wrong turns, lost the boys and almost ran out of gas. When we finally met up with the guys at a Subway, Macy found a credit card on the ground with the same last name as hers. The water dispenser rumbled and shook whenever I tried to get water, and then in the car, our two main go-to channels were playing the same song. Needless to say, it felt like we were in an alternate universe today.
Finally reaching our set-up hotel, everything wound down and we’ve been doing some logistics work to start our last camp off right. Already visited the hospital to inform them of our presence in the community next week and the manager seemed curious as to our doings in Troy these next two weeks. It’s reassuring especially when the week gets busy but it’s time to make the most of our last camp.
So in this eclectic post, maybe I can pull something meaningful out of it…
Philippians 2:3-4 says: “Don’t be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves. Care about them as much as you care about yourselves”
So whether you’re religious, a Christian, an atheist, a patriot or a sinner, maybe take today or tomorrow to remember that people are people no matter what their beliefs or actions. Share the love today and smile at someone new.
A smile from me to you,
