What do you pray for?

Do not pray for easy lives,
Pray to be stronger men.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers,
Pray for power equal to your tasks.
P. Brooks


And camp is over -- it was quite a week! I learned so much again. The quote I posted above really describes my time: it wasn't always easy, but I know I grew in the Lord's strength. And the assignments the Lord gave me were way beyond my power, but not beyond His!

Oh Bethany,I am so happy to see your post!! I praise God for giving you the strenth sufficient to your tasks and not the task sufficient to your strength. I've been praying for you!

May the rest of your travels be fun and safe and may you arrive home soon :). Love you!

I forgot to mention that I just love that photograph(I'm assuming that you took it?!)
Very striking! I love striking pictures of simple things!=)
