21-22/66...and Currently

Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs are both complete. Ecclesiastes can be pretty depressing for those who are new to their faith. It says that there is nothing new under the sun and everything is meaningless, but it also says that we should enjoy the life that God has given us. Song of Songs is a love letter, describing how a man should love his wife, but it is also referring to how Christ loves the church. I found both books to be very encouraging.           

I'm currently in San Diego for a family reunion, and these are some pictures from the weekend.

Reading: Not a lot. I'm rereading some old favorites in my spare time, but I've been super busy working, which doesn't leave much time for reading.
Watching: Nothing. I've watched hardly anything at all this summer, and it's kind of been a nice break. I did go see The Dark Knight Rises, which was absolutely fantastic. I think another trip to the movies is in order to witness the awesomeness all over again.
Anticipating: Staff banquet at the end of this coming week. I've been working hard this summer, and there are still two weeks of work to go, but our giant staff party is this Friday. I get to get all dressed up, and hang out with the awesome people that I've met this summer. It's going to be a great time.
Listening To: At this very moment, the conversations of 27 family members that are gathered for this reunion. My dad's side of the family is huge and crazy and one of a kind. I love them to death, but I'm ready to go back up to camp tomorrow.
Eating: Far too much. Camp food is getting tiring, and so I tend to pig out any time I can eat something other than that. Right now, I'm munching on one of my mom's awesome chocolate chip cookies.
Working On: Organizing my life from camp. I move back to Albuquerque on August 17, and camp is over August 10, so I have seven days to take care of business in California and prepare to move my life back to New Mexico
Wishing: That we lived in a perfect world where I could have my cake and eat it too. But we don't live in a perfect world, but I am loved by a perfect God. He's got my back, and I trust Him completely. Life is good because God is good.

Proverbs=complete. There's a lot of good advice, tips and tricks in this book. It's full of wisdom, but the understanding comes from God, and it depends on each individual and where they are in their walk with God. It was awesome.

So, camp is starting to wind down. There are three weeks left and then I go back to school. I love this job so much. It's been so rewarding. I'm going to miss it a lot.

Though the numbers say I'm far from being half-way done, length wise, I'm half way done! I finished the book of Psalms last week. The Psalms are beautiful and honest. They are a reflection of the human condition and reveal the nature of our great God. God is good, and I'm thankful to be reminded of it every day.
