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.
