How I Will Blog and Be Away From Home At the Same Time

During the next two and a half weeks, I will be making a quick trip for the 4th of July, then I’ll be out at our church camp with my family. There is wireless internet at the camp, so we’ll be packing up the laptop to keep up with work as we can.


However, internet can be a little tricky there. Plus, I plan to spend time with campers and other staff while I’m there instead of working on my computer for several hours each day like I try to do at home.

Here’s what you can expect here during the next two and a half weeks:

  • New posts now and then.  I’ll try to check in here when I can, because two weeks is a long time to be gone and I’ll just miss you all too much if I stay away that whole time.
  • Gratituesday as normal – hopefully. At the very least, I hope to get online to share how God is working in my life and to praise Him with you on Gratituesday. If my schedule at camp just doesn’t allow this, or if the internet doesn’t cooperate, we’ll all just be grateful on our own. :)
  • Older posts re-posted each day.  To date, I have written 3,650 posts for this website. I bet there are a few you’ve missed here and there, eh? I’ve picked out some that I think will benefit you to read (or re-read), and scheduled them to pop up throughout the next two weeks. It’ll be a fun blast from the past!

How can you pray for me?

Oh hey, thanks for asking. :)  This summer has been great so far, and also very, very full. I’m a little tired already as I head into these weeks away from home. I’d love prayer for energy. But mostly, I need prayer to be fully surrendered to letting God work. I want the people I’m with to see Jesus shining through me, not myself shining through me. I struggle with this. But God is biggest, and He has already won the victory over this battle in my life. How very gracious of Him to continue working this out in me.

I’ll be praying for you too.

You are all an important part of my life, and I appreciate you. I want you to know that I pray for you, and will continue to pray while I am away. Thank you for being a blessing in my life!

    I will be praying that you are not only blessed on this trip, but that you are a blessing to all those you come in contact with. I hope that you get some much needed R&R. I think I have read every post you have ever written, but I’m looking forward to reading some of the “classics” again. Thanks & have fun!

    Have fun at camp…..I liked NuNatural Stevia at their website and left msg.
    And I would love to win one of these gift packages also )
    I use Stevia, but have not tried the NuNatural Stevia…..
    My daughter & her husband & Faith just got back from a week at church camp, my daughter helped in the kitchen and her husband was a counselor and Faith went to have a good time :) I believe that is what pre-teens do eh?
    She loves going to camp, this is her third year……. Just think Laura you want have to buy groceries or cook for 2 wks :) that is like a big vacation…..that is unless you help in the kitchen……but at least you won’t have it all to do…..
