Mastercard, church camp and a 30 year old debt
Bear with me…. Last weekend I took my daughter to the church camp that I went to as a kid. She got all fixed up because there was this boy there she wanted to see. Remembering my own camp experiences of youth and love I was happy to take her and reminisce myself. My initials carved on the bridge were still there. Structures of wood and rock and in the air the sounds of bugs. (Hence the picture taken where morning watch came all too early for a junior high student). All this is preface though…. I got a comment from an old camp girlfriend that put me right. I had dumped her in 9th grade for a friend of hers. Not cool. Not cool at all. I knew that wasn’t the right thing to do and there are a few things I wish I could change. At some point in time things come full circle. Dumper now…dumpee later…..take that Trey!
Its good to know when you do something wrong. Love is hard to find and harder to hold onto. If you treat it poorly it will die. Learning to fix what you break….....priceless.
