Holy Ground

I’m spending the summer at our Camp WeHaKee in northern Wisconsin, far from my home in Austin, Texas.  The setting is gorgeous, and the camp is full of the laughter and struggles of girls as they navigate new relationships as well as develop new skills in such things as teamwork, arts, music, horseback riding, sailing and archery.  While there are still some Covid protocols in place, we have been able to enjoy seeing one another in person again, sharing meals outside and singing our favorite camp songs.  I am especially impressed with the camp counselors, young women mostly college age, who bring energy, enthusiasm, and many talents they can share with their campers

Surely, 

This is holy ground; we’re standing on holy ground,

For our God is with us, and where God is is holy.

  1. How blessed you are to spend the summer at this lovely place! I worked as a counselor at WeHaKee back in 1981 and 1982 - two of the best summers of my life... would not have traded it for anything in the world!

  2. Holy ground it is! What wonderful memories I have of meals in the valley, singing all kinds of songs, campfires, beautiful sunsets and shooting stars over the lake!
