April 4, 1995 – Tuesday – 10:45 p.m.

After I wrote in my journal earlier this afternoon, I read Ecclesiastes in the Bible.  It blew me away.  It kept saying “Everything is meaningless.”  It made me realize a few things.  No matter where I spend my summer, I won’t be doing wrong, it won’t matter.  Life on this earth will fade away.  We should all just serve God!

I called my mom today.  I told her I was thinking about coming home.  She said that she missed the deadline on one of my scholarships.  That means I will not have $2000 I had this year.  If I stay up here I will not have any money.  I will throw it all away on rent.  If I go home, I’ll be able to save money for the next school year.  So, I’m going to talk to the church.  Everything should be okay.

This evening around 6:00 p.m. I went for a walk.  I found a trail and followed it.  The brush was really dense and I thought I had lost the trail, but I worked past it and the trail suddenly opened up.  It circled around to the top of Hemlock Hill and there it lead up to a tree house.  I climbed up into the tree house.  It was amazing.  Someone had obviously put a lot of time and effort into this thing.  I had a great view.

Back home, Ore Hill was my place to explore.

Here, it will be Hemlock Hill.

A girl named Michelle and I have been writing each other on email.  She is a student here.  She’s a good Christian and a great friend.  But typed letters are no match for Emily’s handwriting.

Goodnight Emily.

Goodnight Lord.
