Favorite thing about new places?? NEW RUNS!!
I think all of us runners agree that the best way to see a new area is by running the streets/paths/trails/campus/etc… you really get a feel for your surroundings and what you will call “home” for the next while.
I am so excited to run through the camp this morning! Not sure how long or where to go, but I think it will be fun exploring! There seem to be lots of other runners here so maybe I can hook up with someone to run with in the mornings!
So far my worry about being “so old” here is completely and 100% unwarranted. I was silly to think that! I am loving all the people I am with so so much!!! Age don’t matter!! In fact, I hope I can be some kind of Help to many of them when they are trying to deal school problems, drinking/social situations, etc. Been there, Done that ya know??!
For me that is for the next month at Timber Wolf Lake in Michigan with the wonderful staff and campers of Young Life!! Read yesterday’s post HERE if you want more info!
You all were GREAT yesterday with advice for eating and keeping up with nutritional goals while here. I am trying to eat whatever is given to me, no “substitutions”. It is hard, not gonna lie, but I also see me doing so much better than if I would have been placed in this situation a few months ago!! And that is so cool to me 🙂 Thank you for your kind words and encouragement as always!
I can already tell you that I am going to be SUPER DUPER busy. I am exhausted already… so when I do post, they will be short n’ sweet! Hang with me guys, I promise that when I am back home on July 2 I will be back in full swing!
Another reason post’s my be few and far between, is because I am really here to work on my spiritual health. The bits of free time that I will have, I really want to spend praying and diving into my devotionals and spending time with Jesus. I never take the time for that at home any more because “life” gets in the way. Well Andrea, God must come first, and if you can’t put Him first while AT a Christian Camp, then that is REALLY where I need to focus my energy on. Spiritual Health trumps Personal Time.
That is all for now, going to dive into John 15:1-17 that we are trying to memorize as a staff team this month! It is the one all about Jesus as The Vine and we are The Branches and God is The Gardner. Awesome metaphors!
Do you have a favorite quote/bible verse/saying? I wanna hear it!!
First thing you do in a new place?
