We lift our eyes to Heaven . . .

I’m blogging this week from G.A. Girls Camp at Dry Creek.

The Dry Creek Tabernacle

Cade Gibbs leads the song,  “Christ be the center of our lives. 

                                                      Be the place we fix our eyes.”

Young girls singing fills the Tabernacle.

I think of Patti and her story.  She’s an adult who grew up at Dry Creek like me.  A few years ago she shared this testimony:

“I was a young girl coming to G. A. Camp at Dry Creek.  The morning before we left for camp, my parents sat me down and explained how they were getting a divorce.  Their words echoed in my mind and heart as I arrived at camp.

It was a week I’ll never forget.  Ladies and girls hugged me up and loved on me.  They surrounded me with Christian kindness.  I know now that Dry Creek was the perfect place for me to be in the worst week of my life.”

That’s a story worth repeating and remembering.

As Julie Spears shares about keeping our eyes on Jesus in the storm, I’m reminded that little Patti’s are here at camp this week. They’ve come to camp out of a storm at home.

Camp’s a good place to be when the storm is here.

A place to put our eyes on Jesus.
