My precious Matthew arrived home from his week at camp late Friday afternoon. Well, someone who looked like him arrived home. But the peaceful spirit certainly added some maturity to his otherwise quarterback-like countenance. I knew he would be different but the coming days will certainly show us just how much, and how deeply he allowed the Lord to dig. The theme of the week was "Ignite" and it is my parental prayer that he allowed the Lord to not only ignite, but fan the glow in to flames.
Mom picked him up from camp so she spent much of the afternoon with him on the drive home, stopping for lunch and then taking him with her while she ran errands. At 4 PM they were finally headed to our house and Mom was discussing the weekend with him. She said his response to her discussion was "My Dad will be home in half an hour and then we get to spend the whole weekend together. It just doesn't get any better than that." Yes, that was a 13, almost 14 year olds response. And he's right. It just doesn't get much better than that. :)
