So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

The Power of One!

Anyone who thinks that one "small insignificant" person can't accomplish great things and move other people to action, has never spent the night in a tent with one small mosquito.

One lone individual, and God, can change himself, his family, his neighborhood, his city, his nation, and his world.

I think this is true. The pity is one doesn't often recognise it.

Insects are the down side to camping.

I think that many times the smallest actions can produce the greatest changes (in ourselves and in others).

Rob, I suspect that as a teacher of young people, you make a bigger difference than you will ever know.

Scott, you are correct as all ways; but in the bugs' defense, there are some camping trips I'll never forget, not because of the people, but because of the insects. Sad but true.
