On My Heart Lately

In less than four weeks I'm leaving.

I'm packing up my things and going to camp.

Few of you may be familiar with the camp I volunteer for. It's called Champions For Life Kids Camp and it's directed by Vision Hope.  (Pssst. Type the word "camp" in the search bar at the top of my page to see all the posts I wrote about my past experiences.)


This is my 4th year volunteering and my second time leaving behind my stay-at-home duties. Yah, I'm a bit nervous about leaving both of my children behind for a week. But I always take heart and remember the reason I love working with this camp in the first place. (Plus, they will be with the hubster and their grandparents. Can you say "spoiled"?)

I've been through a lot in my life. A LOT. But what sticks out to me now is not the people who hurt me, it's the people who helped me. There were many who came beside me and supported me, prayed for me, and helped me heal. And GOD gets the glory! Because of this, I want to help. I want to do whatever I can to show someone else God's love.

So, Champions for Life Kids Camp it is.

My heart has been breaking lately. As I pray for these children...foster children...wards of the court, I can't keep myself from crying most times. These precious, little lives have known way too much. They've seen and heard and even felt things that they should not have had to. As I pray, I see the faces of the children I've met at past camps. I remember the stories of the girls in my cabin. I remember the fear and the pain in their eyes. My life is forever changed by them and I pray that I make an impact on their lives as well.

So, if you think of me, please say a prayer for the safety of my children and for the children who will be coming to camp this year. They need your prayers more than I do.
