At last I write to you from my current position with Lutheran Outdoors- counseling at the Pine Ridge Retreat Center for various servant camps that come along each week.
I have decided to not go into as much detail with my summer posts, and I shall start back up with vigor in the fall- I promise. :)
My time with the camps has been going well. I am seeing Pine Ridge with different eyes this summer, and for that I am grateful. It is humbling to be in this position, but the groups appreciate our (Ben and I's) perspective, having both lived here for a year now.
I am into the second week of camps, and I am enjoying it with a surprising amount of energy, looking now toward our final day with this group. Last week was cut short because I left on Wednesday for a very important event in the Fischer family.... Alison's wedding! :) Overall my time home with wedding festivities was absolutely wonderful... I enjoyed everything so much, re-connecting with family, etc.
Now I am looking toward a trip to Leadville, Colorado with rising seniors from Red Cloud- which will obviously be wonderful (I say that with so much conviction, but I suppose I should bite my tongue until all goes as expected.) :) Anyway- it is an Outward Bound adventure trip- and I am the female chaperone- tonight I browsed the list of necessary packing items, and it seems I am short a few things- hmm, perhaps my Friday will involve a trip to Rapid.... yikes! :)
Okay, I want you all to know that I most definitely have not forgotten about my faithful readership, and I look forward to more time to reflect on this summer- but my limited internet time (especially in July) will prevent me from doing much typing until August.
If anyone is actually reading this- thanks, and I always look forward to hearing back from you, my interested friends and journey partners.
Much love- and peace of heart,
