Every year the second graders go to Camp Lakota and camp out and have a wonderful time. Our son Jacob has been talking about this trip since last fall and so was looking forward to it. They were to leave this past Thursday morning. On Wednesday afternoon I went to get him at the daycare he goes to after school. He wasn’t outside and one of the teachers said he was laying down inside because he was sick. I went and got him and he was burning up with fever. Such disappointment I felt for him since he was to leave in the morning. I put him in the car and went and picked up my wife from work. When she helped him out of the car, she held him close and was praying for him. I thought as soon as we got him inside, I was going to pray for him too. By the time we got inside and I put my hand on his head, his fever was already gone. When he got up in the morning he was absolutely fine and went on his trip and had the greatest time.
Sometime at work, people can really drag you down where you don’t want to be and yesterday I was having one of those days. On my way back from a delivery I was praying Father, just give me a sprinkle and get me back where I need to be. Just give me a drink. I pulled in and coming in at the same time were Matt & Lesa. She greeted me with “Hello Sunshine” and I looked up and immediately felt a difference in the way I was feeling. I spent a few minutes talking with them and as they were leaving, Lesa turned and said “don’t forget to make a difference today”. That really made my day. Just a word or a touch can make the world of a difference. Mark S.
