Vintage Bicycle Built for Two!!

My blog was quiet last week because I took some time out to go to Dayspring 2010 with some of our church youth. Dayspring is not your regular church camp....no popsicle stick crafts, no old church hymns...this is a cutting edge very intentional camp for youth (and adult leaders) who want to give it all to God.
This is my 5th year attending and this time, I didn't even have one of my own children going...that is how much I value this camp!

Dayspring has been held at the same campground for years....
This year, they made the decision that Dayspring had to move to accommodate the growth. I was not sure I was ready for the change.....
1. It wasn't going to be the same.
2. I had to drive further.
3. It was more expensive.
4. I was comfortable.
Shortly after entering the camp....believe me, Satan was having a field day trying to throw as many obstacles in our paths to keep us from going....I discovered this gem just setting propped up against a fence......

It was a good thing I was all alone in my car because I just might have possibly SQUEALED. Just look at this thing....and it was on a RANCH...A RANCH....
It looked so lonely....
I had to go visit this lonely bike.
I took its picture....I'm sure it hasn't had this much attention in YEARS!
After that, I was cool with camp...yep, I relaxed and had a beautiful week.
The camp ended up being pretty amazing.
We had a blessed week and God worked His miracles like no other.
The theme for the week was The Journey.
Matthew 7:13-14

13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
The bike symbolizes that I must make sure to share MY JOURNEY with a friend....GOD! He is in the lead....I shall peddle along on the back and enjoy THE JOURNEY! With God in the lead, I can find the narrow gate.

I love the analogy of the scripture and the bike.
So glad you had a good time and that ole nasty satin didn't mess things up for you all.
The bike is adorble!
