Roxbury Camp just 12 days away

Roxbury Camp will begin on August 5th.

My 6 kids and I are all excited to be going --- wow --- Camp 2016 is almost here!!  I've been going to this camp for 50 years, so I have many fond memories.  Jill, Jake and Holly were all baptized at Camp, so of course, those times are very special.

This is one of the older songs I remember from camp:

Hollys' trip to Canada

Holly is taking her first Jet ride today.  She has her passport, ticket, luggage --- she's heading 3,000 miles away to Canada for a 2 week vacation.

Below is the Air Canada commuter plane at the Harrisburg airport that she'll be riding to Toronto; then transfer to another flight to take her over to Vancover.

We'll miss her but we are hoping she will have a great vacation!!

Getting ready to load the luggage:

In Awe song

In Awe by Central Christian School Quartet -- YouTube Link

You are beautiful beyond description
Too marvelous for words
Too wonderful for comprehension
Like nothing ever seen or heard
Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom
Who can fathom the depth of Your love
You are beautiful beyond description
Majesty enthroned above

And I stand, I stand in awe of You
I stand, I stand in awe of You

Holy God to whom all praise is due
I stand in awe of You

In awe of Your glory --  In awe of Your Grace
In awe of Your Spirit --  We feel in this place
You surround us  --  You astound us
Jesus we're so glad You found us
We stand in awe of You, Lord

Your Presence speaks peace to the storms that rage in us
You whisper compassion; No song can describe
With hearts overwhelmed; Lord we just want to praise You
Our words fall short, of what we feel inside
