November 13, 2015: As You Grow Up
We have a little something different today for our devotional reading. Several years ago, our Chaplain to the Staff shared the following with our summer staff as one of his chaplain’s notes. We share it with you to reflect on this day.
As You Grow Up
As you grow up, you will have your heart broken more than one and it’s harder every time. You’ll break hearts, too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and eventually you’ll lose someone you love. So, take too many pictures, laugh too much and love like you’ve never been hurt. Because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back.
I found this statement on a board in one of those see-if-we-can-separate-you-from-your-money shops in Cape May, NJ. Instead of buying it, I just jotted down the first few words and looked it up on the internet. I have no idea who wrote it.
I like it because I find myself agreeing with so much of it. Just thought I would share it with you. –Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff.
