We, meaning, my brother Tim, his wife, Laura, Lucas, Max, Zach, Sarah, Elisha and I headed for Yelm, Washington on July 4th for cascades family camp. The weekend was filled with much activity, breathtaking beauty, worship services, a 5K walk, days at Elbow Lake, swimming, canoeing, and just enjoying the scenery. Family camp is also about making new connections with people, and re-connecting with ones from previous years… Since this was Elisha and my second year, it was so nice to see familiar faces in campers. I felt the refreshing of God in my soul daily. The days were long and filled with activities for kids during worship times-which were daily morning and evening…http://www.cascadescamp.org/
My time spent there with my brother and his family was glorious.
I meditated on some deep issues in my life, and had quiet communion with my Maker amongst the evergreens.
