"Praying God shows up"
is what I read on a friends facebook page the other day.
Someone was leaving a note of
"encouragement" for a friend who is facing the devastating fire
in Colorado Springs.
I have to tell you -
this comment -
brought me to my knees!
Do I do that?
When things aren't going as I planned -
am I waiting on God to show up?
I know I'm not in Colorado right now-
and my house is not burning down.
And I am not making light of these fires at all!
But I do know who holds the future!
Circling God's promise...
"And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age."
My kids are back in the Springs.
Camp took a volunteer evacuation yesterday as parts of the nearby town
were being evacuated.
This was a good decision - as they were able to evacuate all the kids
calmly and orderly.
The kids were only upset that they had to leave camp early!
(Ohhh, I remember those days as a camper!)
All the campers are home safely with their families.
From reports I don't believe all the kids had a house to return too,
but they have their families!
Officially, the camp is on a pre-evacuation status -
so early evacuation was a good thing!
Praying for the rest of the camp summer season -
day by day,
week by week!
Please keep Colorado in your prayers!
