January This month was spent mostly secluded in the Manager's Quarters as I attended to the needs of my sweet wife. I thank God for all our family and friends who came to visit, sent cards, called and contacted us in any way during this long and trying month. Most of all I give a big thank you to our Lord Jesus Christ and His sweet Holy Spirit who was present throughout the last days of Sister Tolman's life on this earth. She had a very peaceful and relatively pain free transfer to eternity. After spending the entire month under hospice care Dionie left the cares of this world behind and went to her heavenly reward on January 30. There is no doubt that she heard the Master say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant;..." Matthew 25:21. Again, I can not say enough about the wonderful folks from Samaritan's Purse who have been staying with us for the past year. They took all the pressure off me as I attended to the needs of my wife of 52 years in her final weeks. Surly there is a special place in Heaven waiting for servants such as those.
February Of course, with all that was going on in February concerning Dionie's Memorial services and personal things to take care of, not much happened with regard to Camp Lost Pines. The biggest event was "The Big Freeze" that hit the state of Texas. God kept His mighty hand upon us and we only had 2 small water lines that cracked. The repairs were quick and the damage was non-existent. To God be the glory for all He has done.
March Spring has sprung at Camp Lost Pines. The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. The grass is growing and it's time to start mowing. We have been busy cleaning the pool and repairing the pumps, restoring the shade covers and destroying the ant hills. We have restored the horseshoe pits and lowered the light pole on the basketball court. We are cleaning and repairing & replacing things as needed to get ready for an exciting Summer Camp time in June.
Upcoming As you can see on our events calendar page we have several events booked for the next 4 months. If your group would like to book an event please cheek out the Events Page, choose a time slot that is not taken and contact me for instructions on getting it locked in for you. Remember, we DO NOT hold time slotts until the deposit is paid. So be sure to get that deposit in to insure the days you want are booked for you. Thank you so much.
