525,600 minutes


525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes – how do you measure,
measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In
inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. In 525,600 minutes – how do you
measure a year in the life?
How about love? How about love? How about love? Measure in love. Seasons of
love.

525,600 minutes! 525,000 journeys to plan. 525,600 minutes – how can you measure
the life of a woman or man?

In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, or
the way that she died
It’s time now to sing out, tho the story never ends let’s celebrate remember a year in the life of friends. Remember
the love! Remember the love! Remember
the love! Measure in love. Seasons of love! Seasons of love

525,600 minutes..that’s what it takes to measure a year. It is incredible to me that as I age the years just seem to fly by. As a kid I remember counting the days until I turned 18 or 21 and now I only count down the days to camp! Since November I have found myself doing a lot of internal searching….things that I thought were important no longer held that honor..the things that matter are the things I always took for granted.  As a kid when I heard about sick or dying people it was friends grandparents or elderly relatives and now suddenly it seems as though it is about my peers, friends and well frankly…it is hitting way too close to home.

This weeks message has nothing to do about camp but when you break it down it has everything to do with camp. It is about all the people who show up every summer and give their heart and soul to change the life of a child…

Running the risk of sounding like a Hallmark card….I think the season of love is about the summer….it is about all the wonderful things in life that we take for granted…all the blessings we have that we forget to count.

Now is your chance….count’em! Show how you feel….not only in words but in deeds…..give a hug, make a donation, spend a minute, spend a lifetime…..follow your heart. Throw it out to the universe and watch what you receive in return….10 fold!

I know the impact camp had on me…time to pay it forward.
