For those that don’t follow my blog, let me introduce you to Lucille – my camper! Silly as it may seem, I even have a blog dedicated to her restoration / facelift. I purchased her in late 2012 and planned to have her settled in the country by mid-2013… well, if you’ve been following the #write31days, 2013 didn’t exactly lend itself to “me” time let alone getting a camper moved! So here’s the link to Lucille’s story… My Someday Getaway [click HERE] – you can also get there by clicking on the “Jesus makes me a happy camper” photo in the sidebar below.
Lucille and I have a unique relationship – and yes, I’m quite aware of how odd that sounds, but it’s true! My purpose in purchasing Lucille was to have a place where I could truly be still with God – away from the dailies of life – a place where I could rest in Him, and open myself to the words He scribed on my heart. But it wasn’t just for me… little did I know she would become a place of rest for weary souls…as you step over the threshold, all who enter are literally surrounded and standing on God’s Word.
And don’t let the enemy fool you…Lucille didn’t need to be in the country or finished to be a sanctuary for this weary soul. During 2013 and most of 2014, Lucille was parked at a storage facility…behind a Chinese restaurant with an often overflowing dumpster and beside other campers… not exactly what one would describe as serene, huh? Oh but it was!
I guess you could say Lucille is my WAR ROOM – and if you haven’t seen the movie, you’re missing out! I can immediately shut my mind off to the noise of life and zero in my focus to God. Everyone needs a Lucille – a war room – a space where distractions stay at the door and you enter into His Presence
