The crib, mud, and fergie

This week was way interesting.
Here are some highlights:
* I took my in-camp night off with the Castle Rock staff and went to my boss's house... it was fun to get to know them better
* I did uber amounts of lost and found... sort, wash, dry, inventory... It took all week. One time, a kid had thrown up all in her bed so we had to wash her sheets, and I was transfering the sheets from the washer to the dryer, and the sheet definitely still had chunky, now colorless puke all over it. awesome.
* I sat on the porch and did cedar medallions with another staffer while it was raining and had some great conversation. I love good convos.
* Lacey got pink eye and I got to stay with her cribsters(youngest cabin--just finished 1st grade) from club thursday night till lunch on Friday. And we won the spirit stick. whoop. And we french braided our hair and had a bed time story and listened to David Crowder and played "Would you rather?" And we were one point away from winning Pit n Palace... but Featherstone 1 was just too good... :)
* I got to have 2 one-on-ones with 2 of the most precious 7 year olds in the world. One of them informed me that her favorite person who sings was Fergie, and then she proceeded to sing fergalicious for me. every. single. word.
* I got to play buffalo hunt!! yeahh!! I'll add a pic just so yall can understand what that is:

* I got to go to camper share and hold 2 of those 7 year olds in my lap... and then help them get ready for bed and kill spiders for them.

God had really been teaching me to act in faith. I have trust issues when it comes to giving Him my life. Our program director's Club talk was on fear, and earlier, before the talk, he and I were talking about fear and different types of fear, etc. Fear is something that Satan really attacks me with, and this week I really felt convicted about trusting Him with every aspect of my life, present and future. I was telling little girls that they should speak with confidence about the fact that God has saved them, but I struggle with doing that myself!!

Overall, it was a muy bueno week. I hope all of yall are doing well!! Send me mail!!

The song of blessings this week:

I'm giving You my heart, all that is within
I lay it all down for the sake of You, my King

I'm giving You my dreams, laying down my rights
I'm giving up my pride for the promise of new life

And I surrender all to You, all to You

I'm singing You this song, I'm waiting at the cross
All the world holds dear, I count it all as loss

For the sake of knowing You, for the glory of Your name
To know the lasting joy, even sharing in Your pain

(Surrender-- Vineyard)
