Our Waukesha Warriors did great at the Wisconsin Pathfinder Fair last week at Camp Wakonda, and I am very proud of them for their performance and achievement. My kids really enjoyed it as well. I was blessed by the beautiful nature, we got to see the northern lights, the main speaker talked about archaeology which I really enjoyed listening to. We had great company and good food during meal times. 

But sleeping in the tent at night at this time of the year was a bit cold for me. I kind of like camping, but I wouldn’t say it’s my number one favorite thing to do. I have a hard time sleeping on hard grounds (no matter how much cushion I have under me), and it was really cold. I think I had over 3 layers on me, even inside the sleeping bag. Maybe it was just me and Hyemi being adults, because my kids told me they were fine sleeping. In the morning when we got up, the first thing Hyemi said was, “The Israelites did this for 40 years!”

For someone like me that finds it difficult to camp for just a weekend, it’s hard to imagine how the Israelites have been camping for 40 years. In the end, with the leadership of Moses and Joshua, they entered the promised land. “So Johua took the whole land, according to all that the Lord had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land rested from war.” Joshua 11:23. This is a reminder that this world that we are living in is a temporary home. We are just camping on this sinful earth. It teaches us that we have an eternal home that Jesus is preparing for us. Jesus says, “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2. So let’s not get too used to our life here but look forward to the second coming of Jesus.
