We leave for youth camp tomorrow. Because our bathroom faucet has been dripping, Steven decided to replace it before we left. He started on it Friday night, then discovered he didn't have a part he needed. Saturday he got back to work on it, then discovered the old original plumbing was problematic. (Don't ask me how because I don't know, nor do I really care, as long as it's fixed.)
This turned into a call to our friend Dan, who is very knowledgeable about plumbing. Poor Dan spent part of his 4th of July under our bathroom sink. But we're so grateful!
This just reminded me of last year and having to repair the couch the day before leaving for camp. Leaving just can't be easy, it seems.
If you think about it during the week, pray for us. We're taking 35 students to camp with us this year, including a few whom we believe are not saved. I'll be taking a blogging break for the next 1-2 weeks, which frankly, I need because I think I've become dull and uninspired. A time of spiritual retreat is something I definitely need right now.
Also, say a prayer for Calvin that he stays well while we're away and doesn't give his "aunties" taking care of him any trouble.
