"Do you want to know a secret?"

You know that friend I mentioned in this post?

His name is Shawn.

He was just a friend when we planted those tulips, we had maybe know each other for about a month. He kept coming to camp, so I had to think of things to do together. :) 
I learned that day he had worked for a landscaper during high school, so he knew more about planting bulbs then I did.

Not too long after that he had a talk with my father, and he came to camp the next week with a huge bouquet of flowers and asked, 

"Will you be my girlfriend?"

I said yes. :) 

But he's not my boyfriend anymore.

This Saturday he came to camp and asked me to go for a walk with him.

We didn't get very far, we were next to a little gazebo on the camp property, and Shawn asked if it needed to be repainted, so of course I started looking at it, saying something about how maybe it did, but with other projects at camp we might not have time. I turned back to look at him, and his face got serious as he said "I have something else to ask you."

He got down on one knee, and pulled out a ring.

"Bethany, will you marry me?"

By the way, I said yes.

(More of the story coming soon)

Bible Club

By Bethany

Today will be busy getting ready for Bible Club here at camp tonight. While the parents meet for a Bible study, the kids gather in the camp chapel and we do sword drills (looking up Bible verses, for those unfamiliar with the term), games, prayer time, and a Bible story. Oh, and don't forget snacks. The kids never let us forget that.

We're going through the life of David, and tonight, he's just finally becoming king of Israel, so that's pretty exciting. There's also some murder and intrigue in this lesson, as you can maybe tell be the picture above. 😊

We've had 2-13 kids over the months, so we'll see how many come tonight. They're a fun, though hyper group, but it's been neat seeing growth, even though we meet only twice a month. 

Have you had to teach any lessons lately?
What's you're favorite part about working with kids?

The Upstairs Garden

One of Beth's Lithops had a a successful delivery :) 

This collection of plants all have a place on my dresser, right under the window. 
It's nice to have some green growing things inside too, plus they're fun to talk to. 😊

What about you? 
Do you have any indoor plants?
Do you ever talk to them?

Glimpses of Green

Here are those tulips I mentioned Monday. A friend helped me plant them this fall outside one of the camp buildings, and I've been long anticipating these little green leaves to finally poke out from the brown barren flowerbed. 

Now I just have to wait for them to bloom. :) 

There's always things to wait for, isn't there? But God gives us so many blessings each day, we just have to look around and find them.

Hungry Hungry... Squirrel :)

I was planning on taking photos of making lotion this morning. But then I started helping mom with stuff and this squirrel stole the show for a little while :)

Monday, Monday

Happy first day of Spring!

Sorry I don't have a picture of a real flower to share with you. :) 

Tulips are poking up at camp, and there's been a few robin sightings, always a fun thing.

What signs of Spring have you seen?

Golden walk

A walk to the grocery store, with the dog and a camera. Worked out well, since I also forgot that today was my day to post :) So here it is!

Oh Happy Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, that is.  :)

"There you go!"

Spring and Squirrels

A few quick photos before I head out the door this morning!
The banner is a project I've been putting together yesterday - what do you think? Shabby chic or too shabby? :)
Then, of course, the squirrels were being frisky and cute outside. :)

Early Bird

With a busy day ahead, I was up a little bit before for the sun, so here's a sunrise picture for you.

In fact, you get two, because I couldn't decide which I liked better- the barbed wire in focus, or the sunrise. :) 

Did you catch the sunrise this morning?

Meet up for Becca's Birthday

Happy belated birthday Becca!!!
(She turned 21 yesterday) 

Camp and home are about 3 hours about, but there's a city half way between us that makes a nice place to meet. Snow threatened our plans, but we were still able to make it there safely. 

My roads were a little worse then the ones Mom and Becca traveled on, but they waited for me at a cute little coffee shop.

Beautiful People || March Edition || Becca's Characters


Let's just skip the whole yes-it's-been-far-too-long-so-sorry and get into this. 
Cause I gotta go babysit soon.

Ok, honestly, I haven't been writing lately..... like at all. 

Here you get to meet another character from In The Present Age.
I've been thinking about this story a lot, it's kind of in the crockpot of my mind. I first thought of it.... about 4 years ago. I will write this thing, someday, when I have more life experience and time.... like when I'm 83.
