quiet Sunday morning

It's 10:30am. I'm sitting on one of the ancient, lumpy couches in the staff lodge, listening to soft Christian music and the sound of the leaky faucet dripping in the kitchen. There is some action outside as one of the weekend retreat groups is getting ready to leave this morning, but everyone else in the lodge is still asleep upstairs.
I found the last bottle of orange juice in the refrigerator this morning, and was super excited about that. Love my orange juice in the morning.
Before coming downstairs, I spent some time reading my Bible and praying. The passage I read is still echoing in my mind.

"Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped (or asserted), but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant." (Philippians 2:2-7)

God spoke to me through this today, and I pray that He keeps reminding me of it throughout this week.
Some other things are dancing around in my head, too... some questions, some ideas, some dreams. Things that will continued to be talked about and prayed about, and we'll see what God might have up His sleeve. Dreams that move the mountains...that's what faith can do!

And week 3 of camp begins this afternoon. I wonder what God will do this week.... keep us in your prayers, please?
