Flag Day and other events
Yesterday was Flag Day which marked the 41st anniversary of my baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I find it hard to believe that I have lived that long in the Church, but it has been a great blessing in my life. I started working on a book which I would like to publish sometime next year called "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Synagogue."
As far as Flag Day is concerned, it is important for us to remember our national symbol of the flag and how many people have died fighting for the freedom to be able to post those colors.
My week was very interesting. Last week when I saw my work schedule for the next week, I knew that I would be going to Girl's Camp. I was to work on Tuesday and Wednesday which left the rest of the week open and Kimberly Constantine had no one else who could go. I was happy to go and help the Young Woman's Presidency in our stake. Camp went very well!!! We drove about 2 hours north to a small camp with two big dorm buildings, fully stocked kitchen, pavilion and a pool. We were able to get through most all of our camp crafter assignments and bond together. The most important was that all the girl's testimonies were strengthened. It was a great time and we all came home and slept as much as we could.
For Jim and me, we slept but also had an Amway meeting that night which went very well. Our little group is growing and we are very excited. We just need to find people to buy more product.
This weekend in Father's Day and we are visiting Jim's boys and celebrating his Mother's birthday. A great weekend for everyone.
