Camp Adventure! So, that was fun. We missed aim graduation for the first time (for me) in ten years. Well, I guess I also missed that one year that I was in Scotland. Anyway.
So we go to the evening events every year, have a good time, and go on our way encouraged. This year it was Chad, not me, who said, "Sometimes I wish we were more involved with aim." Sometimes I wish that, too, especially after being around them for a couple of days. But the only way that is going to happen is if South Plains becomes an area church. I also have some pictures from Wednesday at Camp Adventure.
Speaking of aim and South Plains, I really want to go to the gathering of ex-aimers happening in Tulsa on Friday. I said this aloud to Chad, who said, "Let's go!" And we probably could; we would have to take a couple of days off work, scrouge up some gas money, find a place to stay, etc. But just as I was going over all this in my head, I remembered that we are having a slumber party for the sixth-grade Bible bowl girls on Friday night. Bummer.
But not really; this is, after all, why I went to aim in the first place. (Yes, I do aim in lowercase. It's too much trouble to hit caps lock every time.) Now I admit that I was not sitting around ten years ago thinking, "Gee, I hope in ten years I am still living in Lubbock and giving slumber parties for girls who are only babies right now!" But it is the giving of my time and energy to other people, because of the Lord, that brought me to aim. And that brought Chad to LCU, and both of us to South Plains. And it is what keeps us doing what we are doing now.
And that's why we aren't more involved with aim. (Or going to Tulsa.)
