Camp Jitters

So I must admit I am getting just a tiny bit nervous about working as a summer employee of sorts for my very favorite summer camp. I will, Lord willing, be joining the staff in June, which is only a sneeze away from this precise moment. I can't believe April is almost over; next will come May, and after May, June, and then I will be leaving home for the first time ever to stay Somewhere Else for an extended period of time. I am not about it. But at the same time, I am very excited. I know God has planned this for my life, and I'm very eager to see what's going to happen in this next chapter.

Something my Ethics teacher told me is that people are often looking forward to the next moment, and not enjoying the one that is right in front of them. So I don't want to be worrying about May or June or after June when right now I am sitting on the carpeted floor of my living room while my dad plays the piano, and my mom washes the dishes, and my sister watches major league baseball beside me.

There is no need to worry.


  1. Hi Erin :)

    This is such a lovely post. I really liked that you described what was happening around you while you wrote tho post and thought about these things. I think that's the most awesome part of blogging that we are all over the earth living our lives and they are all great and unique! :)
    Anyway, I love camping so I am excited for you! and just remember that the best memories are made when we take a risk to do something great.
    I will be wishing you luck! x

  2. I'm always living in the future, it's never a good thing.



Go with grace.
