I went to the mountains with about 30 something teens at a church youth camp. I took it easy...or at least planned to take it easy until I discovered that teens work on a different speed limit than us older folks. I am still feeling the exhaustion from being there. But it was well worth it!
Strangely enough, the moment I arrived, J told me that my eyes lit up....that he could feel my excitement. I felt like that there was no better place for me to be at that very moment than to be there, ministering to the teens.
I was able to be myself completely although I learned quickly that I needed to take it slow. After going through the "soul train" style dance line three times too many, I was hurting and reaching for the pain meds. But, would I do it again? Heck yeah! It was worth it!
As the summer comes to a close, I am reflecting on all that has happened and I am humbled that God has given me so many adventures and experiences to share. My life has really changed and I am not the same person that I was a year ago.
Growth can take us each by surprise. You never know when plans change in your life in a direction that you never thought possible.
Have you grown this year?
