Perspectives

This Blog is updated each Tuesday.
About a year ago a man bought some land from my grandmother. I found myself recently very interested in something that he gave land to. He gave land to start a year round camp for children with special needs. Camp John Mark is an amazing place. As I sat and read the story, I was overwhelmed. My perspective was challenged as I read the list of their camps for March 2009. 

Week One: Families who have lost a child
Week Two: Families with a child who has cancer
Week Three: Families with a child with spina bifida
Week Four: Families with children who have had organ transplants

How can we ever complain? As we stare into the faces of our healthy children, how can we ever complain? Perspectives.
Gomer is thankful! Denbigh and I stood out in the front of the respite on Saturday evening in awe. We could have never imagined all that was accomplished could have been done in one day. There was a total of over 40 people to come with chain saws, mowers, and tools to restore Gomer. Only the LORD could make this happen. Only the LORD could cause people to work so hard with no reward. Beautiful. We had old cast iron plumbing pulled out and new installed. Heating was fixed. Demolition occurred. An abundance of dead trees were cut down. We are overwhelmed. Praise God for the work He has done before our very eyes. We are praying abundant blessings over the the people who worked and brought food. Thank you. 
February work day to be announced soon.
And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.
Isaiah 58:10
. . . the priests repaired the wall . . .
Nehemiah 3:28
They purchased timber and dressed stone for the repair of the temple of the LORD, and met all the other expenses of restoring the temple.
2 Kings 12:12
In the first month of the first year of his reign, he opened the doors of the temple of the LORD and repaired them.
2 Chronicles 29:3
They are restoring the walls and repairing the foundations.
Ezra 4:12
 He has granted us new life to rebuild the house of our God and repair its ruins, and he has given us a wall of protection in Judah and Jerusalem.
Ezra 9:9

The Biblical worldview conference was held in a Messianic church. It was amazing to see the reproduction of the wailing wall and the ten commandments in Hebrew. The conference was quite interesting. You will be glad to know that my secular humanist worldview has been blown away. ;O)
Your biblical worldview determines every other action you take.
Truth is not relative.
Truth is absolute in the person of Jesus Christ.

I'm really thankful to hear that the Truth has blown away your secular humanist worldview - I've been praying about that! ;o) Loved this post - the pictures from the Messianic church are amazing! What a blessing that must have been... And I'm blown away by what God accomplished through His people at GH... Moved actually. What answer to prayer! I can't wait to get down there myself!!! Love you, Miss you!
