We have all come to know Christmas as the silly season and it is known by that name for a reason!! Blue Lagoon is not exempt from this busy time of year and as the weather warms up the number of camps we have visiting with us increases.
We have been having a great time with the schools who have been coming to stay and our initiatives course has proven a hit with both teachers and campers alike.
Camp is so often such a busy time as we rush from one activity to another, however, some of the most special moments of camp are not in the rushing from one destination to another but in the times that we stop for a moment.
When we slow down and take time for each other it is so special to see the way the campers and their teachers are able to bond and it blesses me, to witness this happening.
It is precious to see kids play with each other and share their experiences away from the distraction of social media and technology. They are able to find wonder in so many things, like the simplicity of an anemone closing with the poke of a finger and in the patterns and swirls of a regular seashell.
We seem to suppress this ability as we grow older but that wonder is still within us if we will take the time to let it out.
I encourage you to take a step back this 'silly season'and to find the wonder in the creation around you.
God has created an incredible world for us to live in and as the holiday season draws nearer don't forget to take to time to enjoy all that he has given you!
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind."
