Reading: Ephesians 5: 15-20
Finding a job after college can be a trying experience. I was fortunate to have a summer job lined up following my graduation but it wasn’t until five months after I got my diploma that I had my first full-time job. I did have several interviews, but none of those jobs panned out. One of those interviews was in Fulton, Ohio. I, along with two other people I knew, applied for jobs at a camp there. Over the Fourth of July weekend, we drove from Central Pennsylvania to Central Ohio to see the camp and be interviewed for program positions.
It was a long trip to make in two days. I took about nine hours to drive one way. We made the trip more interesting by singing along the way and making up stories about motorists we saw. When we got there we were very tired. We had our interviews, they took us to eat, and then we went to sleep. The next day, we got up early and drove the nine hours home. I was never so glad to get off the road and back to familiar surroundings.
One thing my trip to Fulton, Ohio, taught me was that I was pretty thankful for what I was used to. The camp in Ohio was okay, but not what I was used to. It also taught me that sometimes it takes going somewhere else to show you that what you have is pretty good. We need to be thankful at all times for what we have! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
