Tuesday, June 23rd (Amy Jensen)

It’s just about bedtime on Day 2 and it’s hard to believe we are only at our 2nd day with all the fun we’ve already had!  This morning we had another fabulous meal (And did I mention the latte delivery? Yes, that’s right you can have a latte delivered to your door at your pre arranged time!  Divine. Who ever had camp like this?).  After breakfast, it was time for our Morning Gathering where we were treated again to the talents of Shirley and Sylvia and their joyous music.  We worshipped together in the sunshine and talked about the fruits of the spirit, enjoying the time to get centered and ready for the day.
Throughout the day there was so much to do.  Some met for early morning Tai Chi, some were able to join Pastor John Dodson for a talk about Pentecost. There was lots of swimming and sunshine, time for walks in these beautiful woods, and I spotted many relaxed campers sitting quietly with a book, a project, or a quiet conversation. The craft shack is in full swing — we’ve done some candle making, T-Shirt painting, and some other very creative and fun projects. Ask Shirley to show you how to make a Glove-o-phone.  You’ll be glad you did.
Tonight was another amazing dinner — We’ve got plenty of hungry campers here at Camp Lodestar!  And again, dinner was followed by an inspiring night of songs and a dance, and wonderful lessons from scripture.  We all caught the Holy Spirit (ask someone who was here about the great game we played!) and then, sat by the campfire for some more singing, discussion, and relaxation.  What a beautiful way to end the evening.
The stars are shining so brightly now, it seems a shame to go to bed.  But that latte is coming early and there will be so much more to come tomorrow.
