Even our bird houses had a few inches of snow on top. I had to clean the snow off the hummingbird feeders so they could get their food.
The miracle about the snow . . .just the day before this world of white was the Spring Open House, where Young Women leaders, and families that have reservations for this year can come and visit the camp. It was cold and raining and blowing, prior to the time the Open House would start. All of us said a prayer that the weather would be tempered. So much work had been done to make the camp in perfect order for these guests. Not even 20 minutes after the prayers were said, a circle of blue sky and sunshine appeared over the camp.
But the question remained, will they come with the weather having been so bad. Steve and I were assigned to the Smith Pavillion to help answer questions as the guests would come. Just before the start time of 1:00pm I looked out the pavillion window. I couldn't believe it . . .cars were lined up clear down the road approaching the Welcome Center.
How could we have ever doubted it! There were over 400 cars that entered into the camp that day, filled with eager, future campers. This is truely the Lord's camp. It has been built, and they will come, and they did.
The snow of the next morning was almost a miracle. There could have been snow for the Open House, but no, He held it off until that special day was past, and then sent us a blanket of white to give us the moisture we so badly need.
