Seriously Worth It

By Thursday night at camp, I was seriously wiped out.  For whatever reason, I could not sleep more than 2 or 3 hours in a row, so I was sleep deprived, not feeling well, and emotionally spent. Even despite all of that, I knew God’s purpose was for us to be there as a family.  Proof of that came Saturday morning.  One of the counselors handed me and Rob a note.  Here’s what it said:

Thank you for everything you have done for me.  Not only have  you provided me great wisdom and knowledge about Christ, a strong woman model who serves Christ passionately, but also you provided me an amazing model of a healthy marriage.  Growing up in a broken home, I don’t really know what healthy is, and you give me a picture of it every time I see you.  Thanks for your passion.  Know I will continue to pray for you both in your faith journey and passion you both have to keep changing people’s lives.  I love you both and am here if you ever need anything whatsoever.  I love you…

I will treasure those words for a long time to come.  It makes sleeping with bugs and having to go outside to use the bathroom in the middle of the night seriously worth it.
