Worry Wort

Well, my boy is off to Boy Scout Camp for the week in 3.5 hours. Am I ever going to not fret when he (or any of them) go off somewhere? This is his second year, and he seriously cannot wait to go. He keeps telling me of all they are going to do and how much fun it is, but I just can't get rid of the horrid feeling in the pit of my stomach called worry.
I worry that something will happen to him and we will be so far away. I worry that he will get homesick and I won't know it. I worry that someone will be mean to him and he won't defend himself....and on and on it goes.
I know the scriptures regarding worry. By heart actually, because I am a major-league worrier about everything. I know what I need to do. I need to be strongly attached to the Vine and just trust in His Sovereignty. It's just the "doing" it that I need work on. So pray for me this week, if you will because I am freakin' out and I miss my boy already.
In other Crew news, we released Huntin yesterday. And yes, she was a Buckeye! Thanks Carrie and Caroline for your help with that! We actually had a really nice Science lesson because of ol' Huntin, and those webpages were very beneficial.
This week is VBS for our church, and I am leading the 5th and 6th grade girlies. I can't wait! It's going to be another busy week around here, but that's probably a good thing.
Alright, off to get ready for church...

You seemed like you had something on your mind at church...I am glad it is just worry wort stuff and nothing too serious.
I will be praying for you and the BS boys.
Friday will be here before you know it!

It's hard to let those babies go, isn't it?? I will be praying for him and his momma.

Next week will be fun. I am looking forward to a good reason not to clean my house or keep up with the laundry. ;-)

my oldest goes to OVERNIGHT camp this summer. its a missions camp and will be fabulous and i know he won't miss me a bit. hang in there girl. it's all a part of being a mommy i suppose. but i know one thing...God is more than worthy of our trust (even if I struggle with that one) i know without a doubt He will be there in every moment.

I'll be praying for him and you! Glad mine aren't old enough for camp yet!
BTW, we did miss you at Steel Magnolia's night. Hope you can make the next one!
See you at VBS tomorrow!

I will pray for your boy and your mommy heart this week. Glad all worked out with Huntin. I think your kids might name things like mine do. Our fish (which just passed away) was called Splash Keemur- Splash being the first name,and Kemur being the last, of course.
