From Chaos To cats To Camping........

We went from chaos the last two weeks with the cat to camping with friends all weekend. Our church held their first family camp and with just over 200 people signed up there was lots of fun to be had. The photo above is our kids and our friends kids zoning in front of a movie after a long day of swimming and playing in the dirt.
Nothing like chili cook out night while you are camping.
Then it was home Sunday afternoon to shower off the "yuck" and watch a little football with daddy. I won't mention any names but my team won yesterday. (Dallas Cowboys!)

Just a side note: I was really praying and asking God to give me wisdom about the ministry we are trying to get off the ground. You know the annual couples weekend away? Anyways, I was wondering in the back of my head if this just wasn't the right time, if the economy was to bad for people. If nobody was interested in a marriage retreat right now etc. And then through good fellowship over the weekend and someone being transparent in their marriage struggles I sensed the Lord nudging us in the direction we have been going. Still don't have all the answers, heck not even some of them. But I do know that marriages are struggling and will continue to struggle and hurt in silence as long as we live here. So with that said I think the more opportunity's there are for couples to get away and invest in their marriages the better chance we have of families staying united and strong against the devil in his attempt to tear the church apart.

Looks like lots of fun!
I'll continue to pray for God's direction with this ministry that he's laid on your hearts.
Love you friend!

Lots of fun, and great wisdom... even Christian marriages need role models, retreats, and reminders! Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!

Even if only a few couples sign up, it'll be worth it. Keep going with your vision =).

And isn't it funny how kids zone out when you put on video, it's crazy.

Maybe warped, but I was curious..don't tell me no one else was?

The camping trip looks like it was a blast!

I can't wait to hear how God works all this out with what He is so obviously laying on your heeart!
