I had the blessing of instructing for the 5th year at the Goldendale Rodeo Bible Camp (wow, does time fly!)
5 weeks ago, Rocki sustained a very serious eye puncture and it’s been a long journey for us both. It’s amazing to me that it is during the times when we are most drained that it is hardest to look forward to the very things that will bring us refreshment and restoration. I am thankful that despite my tiredness, the Father brought me to camp, where there was evidence both in Rocki’s life and my own of the healing that comes from serving others for God’s Kingdom in contrast to the slow fading away of life when we are hyper-focused on our own battles.
To my lovely barrel girls who blessed me so much throughout last week: Thank you for being each one of you. Thank you for showing me strength, determination, humility, childlike fun and kindness. Y’all blew my socks off, gave me chills, challenged me to grow, and gave this tired gal joy in abundance!
Thank you to the folks who work hard year round to bring this camp to pass. Thank you Father for Your faithfulness; in and out of the arena, to each one of us, each and every day and forevermore.
