Hotter Than A Firecracker
We are in the heart of summer here in the Shenandoah Valley. Yesterday’s temp was close to 100 degrees. It is just plain miserable to be outside. We are supposed to be getting a break this week and it is not supposed to be as hot or as humid as the past week. Last night a group of us went to Washington, DC to pick up our missions team from Guatemala. When we arrived at the airport at 11:30 pm, it was still way over 80. As I write, the temp is still over 80 degrees tonight.
The last 48 hours have been a flurry of activity. A 5K race – a wedding – picking up the Guatemala team at 12:25 this morning – getting back at 3:30 – getting a few hours sleep – worship – a nap – then prepping for Vacation Bible School. As soon as I finish this, I plan on going to bed and getting some sleep in preparation for a run in the morning, before it gets too warm tomorrow.
Backstage With the Bible
Tomorrow begins Vacation Bible School. We are using the Go Fish Guys’ Backstage with the Bible program. I really like it. It is reproducible and doesn’t require purchasing a ton of material. We were setting up tonight and the place is beginning to look like VBS. I’ll be reporting each night on how it is going.
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
There are morning’s when you have to completely rely on God’s strength and this morning was one of those. God was with us as we worshipped. It was just hard to concentrate because I was so tired – that and the caffeine buzz that I had going. I believe all of that is out of my system now and I hope to get a quality night’s sleep tonight.
A Full Moon
One of the cool things about last night’s trip was the amount of light the moon shown on the earth. It was bright out there as we travelled I-81 and I-66. I thought about how Genesis mentioned that God made two lights, one to rule by day and the other to rule by night. It was comforting to travel by the light of the moon.
There is still quite a bit to do to prepare for VBS, so time to get to bed so I can be fresh in the morning. Seize the Day!
