Been a long time since I've seen this blog! I never was able to get on and write updates about the summer. Time just didn't allow.
Wow what an incredible summer...oh and how is flew by! I still feel like is should be the middle but it's the end.
God did a lot of cool stuff out there this year with the campers. There were some rough spots but overall I had a pretty terrific summer. The girls i had were so much fun and I wouldn't have traded any of them. I grew up a lot this summer, made some pretty fantastic new friends, and found courage and boldness in places I didn't know were there.
I have to say I have a few new favorite people to add to my list. Out of all the new people i met this summer though, 2 of them really captured my heart. Delee Hall and Doug Waugh, these 2 people are two of the most amazing people I know and I admire them both for their leadership and endurance this summer. I don't know if either of you will read this but I am proud to call you guys friends. I am so happy that God brought you back the camp this summer even though I know it was really tough sometimes to stay.
I know this sounds for like a farewell speech but I just had to get that out. Saying goodbye to my new friends was one of the hardest things I've ever done even though most of them live pretty close by...with the exception of Doug and well I would never wish they he wasn't born in Scotland since that gives me an excuse to go there, I just wish it didn't cost your first born child to get there, but I will eventually.
"So, what are you doing now that you are back Kristen?" I'm glad you asked! Not that it's just that exciting or anything but i could use some prayer. I had been planning to go to school this semester but as of now i won't be able get the Pell grant money in time and i don't have the money to pay for my classes. I am still praying that something will come through with school. As far as a job goes i have looked around and from what I can see Going back to Goody's will be my most secure choice but i have not made any decisions.
I was talking to Nicki earlier today and I have felt so out of place since getting home this past weekend. I feel so unsure about my future right now and what is ahead. Actually, I have been on a mountain top for sometime now, and I get the feeling that God has a valley for me coming up if I'm not already in it. It's a weird feeling, knowing that this is a valley that God is leading me through. I've never been through a valley that was not of my own making. I don't know what He's got up his sleeve. I get the notion that he his going to teach me how to be a Joshua...a leader and someone that will not compromise not matter what.
So anyways, this week i have just been unpacking and sorting through everything trying to get back to normal life. I have to say it's been pretty boring going from have Kids around me 24/7 and not stop activities to coming home to silence. Though i have really gotten into my house work and getting every thing fresh, clean and organized.
Well for now I think I will sign off. Au revior!
