A Memorable Memorial Day Weekend

My family and I spent the weekend at a camp ground with 25 or so other adults and kids at The Nest Family Camp (TNFC). The Nest is the name of our church. This was our second year going to family camp. The theme of the camp was SHINE - taken from Matthew 5:16.

I'm thankful for Jill Perry for organizing the theme and the teaching. I grew in my Christian walk this weekend. Particularly, I had never known or realized that when Moses came down from Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments, his face was shining, glowing with radiant light. We studied The Sun, The Moon and The Stars and used creation to apply the fundamental truth that as believers, we are salt and light. Thank you, Miss Jill!

On top of great teaching and worship and camp songs (an adaptation of R.E.M.'s "Shiny Happy People" by yours truly and his wife), we also ate some great meals together, swam in the lake, did some fishing, played games, had a talent show and played "Minute To Win It" on the last night.

I'm grateful for my church family and for the time I was able to spend with my boys, daughter and wife this weekend.
