My passion and Silly pics :)

Those that know me know of my love for a junior high camp that I have been a part of for 10 years. Camp Dunamis is a multiethnic camp that has 2-1 week sessions each summer. The purposes of the camp are to help kids meet God and to break down the racial barriers that permeate our culture. I could write for hours on the topic, but I know that not everyone has a passion or interest for the camp like I do. Here are a few fun photos from the two weeks that I was at camp. (the pictures are of counselors because I don't want to splash camper pictures all over the web).

This picture is of a game called "zip-bong" The game is silly, but the object is to say zip or bong without showing your teeth at all. Everyone is in a circle. If you say zip it goes one way and the person on your left has to say "zip or bong" If you say bong then it goes to the person on your right. Basically at some point you have people laughing hysterically trying not to show their teeth. Your cheeks KILL after this game ;)

This picture is a pretty normal camp picture. Everyone sees the camera and puts on a crazy face!
I thought of a lot of different things to say with this photo. All I have to say though is that these ladies are like my sisters...once you join the Camp Dunamis family you are a part of it for life!

A quote to share.

I know it has been quite a while since I have been around. Life has been crazy busy lately and stamping, chatting, and blogging haven't been high on my priority list. I still can't scan my cards in yet, but I was really missing writing on here. I thought I would share some food for thought with a quote. I would love to hear your thoughts on this quote.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others"
This quote is by Marianne Williamson, but was used by Nelson Mandela in his inaugural speech in 1994.
