"You're my Prince of Peace, and I will live my life for you..."

Whew! I can take a breath again!
I'm back from camp and I'm exhausted {to say the least!}
But I have to say it was such a precious weekend!

Watching all those kids-
worshiping. encouraging. praying. loving.
All of these things, with all they have.
It brought tears to my eyes.

I want to see those kids live like they are at camp all the time, and the only way they will is if they see the ones they look up to doing so. 
Do I watch all my actions?
Do I have faith like a child?
Do I let this world shake me, when I know that I'm always protected by the Creator?

These lyrics ring in my head when I think back on the weekend. The kids sang this song almost nightly at camp. The innocence, the peace, the surrender in their voices tore me apart every time they sang it. 

"You are Lord of Lords.
You are King of Kings.
You are Mighty God. Lord of everything.
You're Emmanuel.
You're the Great I Am.
You're the Prince of Peace, who is The Lamb.
You're the living God.
You're my saving Grace.
You will reign forever.
You are Ancient of days.
You are Alpha. Omega. Beginning and End.
You're my Savior. Messiah. Redeemer. and Friend.
You're my Prince of Peace, and I will live my life for you."

But back home we are.
Safe and sound.

I'm starting my gym routine back up again tomorrow.
Going to try to check out a local production of "Hairspray" this week, too.
And still thinking on whether I want to go to yet another camp to wind up the summer.
{This would be the last one for the year, I promise!}
