21 July 2008

We are back up in Denver to help with the Math & Science camp. It is the last week they are doing it, and Mrs. Lin said they will need lots of help. Apparently, last week the kids had a hard time designing their logos, so doing even more complicated tasks like putting together cards with information about planets is going to be REALLY tough. But I’ll bet they can do it...


Psalm 139:1-10
1 O LORD, You have searched me and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
5 You hem me in–behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I fell from your presence?
8 If I go up tot he heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

God is good. He is faithful. He is merciful. He is loving, even when we are being tested and tried. (James 5:10-11) I am not saying I enjoy trials or pain. It is not fun. But when was life ever for the purpose of having fun? It is about glorifying God, not myself.

MM,I like your last comment, "the purpose of life is to glorify God." It's so true!
