my mind is seriously occupied with vacation. I am getting ready to go to Europe on Friday. I will be doing a lot of laundry this week. Still need to buy presents for my friends and relatives. As if that wasn’t busy enough, my oldest is heading to camp today. However he will not be relaxing in a hammock. He and his youth group will serve all week among the poor, homeless, widows, and the elderly. They will be working with inner city ministries and Franciscan monks. At the end of the week they will be doing a 30 hour fast to raise money for World Vision. How cool is that?! My husband and I are praying that this week will shape our son for the rest of his life. He and I were part of an inner city ministry in Chicago for 10 years. Our two oldest where born there but they were too young to remember much.
How about you, are you getting ready for vacation? If so where are you headed? Visiting family like me, or exploring new places?
