So, I'll wait till kingdom come...

Ok, so I will admit it, I occasionally listen to the Jonas Brothers, I have them on my iPod due to the fact that I have children in my car occasionally.

Anyway, they have a song that I relate too.  It was written by Nick Jonas who was diagnosed with diabetes in his early teens.  It is the story of his wait to be fine.  Throughout the song, he talks about how he is waiting for things to be better, to be released from the hospital, for a cure.  This is the final refrain:
"So I'll wait till kingdom come
All the highs and lows are gone
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine"

I love that this song acknowledges that life is hard.  You don't have to have diabetes to be able to relate to the fact that all of us have good seasons and hard seasons in our lives.  Although this song acknowledges treatment, and a search for a cure, I think it is profound that the true answer at the end is to wait for our Lord to come back, to make all things right.  I think that I often find myself looking for a cure, for a treatment for this sinful world we live in.  I do believe that God wants to give us his peace, comfort and joy, but I also don't want to ignore the fact that this world is broken and fallen.  I want to continue to wait for kingdom come and not take my eyes of eternity and all that it means.

We went camping!

Here are the pictures....

Camp is set-up!  Notice the view, right over the ocean!

Here is the fountain we (my mom and I) sat at while we waited for AAA to come retrieve the keys I locked in the car.

My dad took the dog for a bike ride, she seemed to like it.
