Sorry I’ve been a little “missing in action” around here. I just got back from what we have affectionately named “Cali-cation” where I spent 4 days immersed in fellowship with some wonderful friends.
It was a trip I will never forget. On Monday as I began the long process of saying goodbye, I kept waiting for someone to cue up Michael W. Smith’s “Friends are Friends Forever” so I could unleash the steady stream tears that were just a blink away (it always worked at summer camp).
Here are a few quick highlights:
Coming from behind and beating a competitive “Team California” at Taboo.
Eating freshly baked molasses cookies courtesy of Tam.
Watching Harry Connick Jr. do his thing with the LA Philharmonic on a perfect summer evening at the Hollywood Bowl.
Having the opportunity to pray with Britt Merrick for his family and his courageous daughter Daisy.
Tackling hard questions about life, purpose, and next steps over some delicious Broccoli Chicken Casserole.
Feeling challenged, but empowered, understood, accepted, and most importantly loved.
So…what is going on in your world?
PS – Will you join me in praying for Daisy and the Merrick family? Here is their story. They are standing so faithfully in the midst of a giant battle against cancer. Let’s stand with them.
