Things I learned while pot scrubbing.

     This past week I had the wonderful privileged of being the pot scrubber for Falls Creek youth camp. We had 86 campers to feed and a lot of pots to scrub.  It was a fun but tiring experience. As I look back over the week I see that this old lady did learn a few things.

1. It is easier to clean a greasy pot if the water is hot and has enough soap.

2. Food taste better when you have had to work for it. (And if someone else cooks it)

3.Tim doesn't look half bad in an apron.

4.Work is always easier and more fun when done with friends.

5. You can make a red neck spa out of a flower pot and bubbles. (boy that felt good)

6. When I do what I am suppose to do then it frees someone else up to do what they are suppose to do.

     Because I went and scrubbed my pots I freed up someone else to go and be a sponsor.  When the person who was asked to be a sponsor did their job they freed up Brother Brad to be able to lead the youth in their bible studies and cabin devotions. When we all did our part we had 25 students come to know Christ over the 2 weeks of camp. Just think this little pot scrubber (OK, not so little) had a hand in all that.
     Isn't it amazing to think that if we would each do our part how we could be a part of something big for the kingdom. This week be sensitive to what God is asking you to do and don't say no.I have learned that if I do my part he will take care of the rest.

God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:18-20
