Homewords – Spring 2005

Just like this time last year, I had the privilege of helping in the kitchen at our church’s high school winter camp. In addition to working with an enthusiastic group of helpers, listening in on the great speaker and having the thrill of seeing dozens of kids raise their hands to accept Jesus as their Savior, I had the opportunity to participate in the incredible worship times as I stood in the back of the dining hall. The sincere prayers, the bold use of the scripture, and the powerful music encouraged me to step up to the throne of grace with an abandonment that isn’t always comfortable in a more conventional church setting. What was amazing was the one up front leading me and about 300 others in worship was the little boy who had wrapped his goldfish in his blankie and put them under his bed for a permanent rest instead of taking his own nap. He was the young kid who had to be strapped to the piano bench to finish his lesson and the teenager who had used more Elmer’s glue in a month’s time on a mohawk than he ever did on his art projects. Although he has a very real human nature like the rest of us, Cody is now a young man who loves God with all of his heart and has been gifted to inspire others to do the same. As his mom I am not proud, I am humbled. In spite of me and in spite of him, God is using Cody for His work and to bring glory to Himself. Now that’s amazing grace! Here’s to God’s faithfulness, answered prayer and plenty of piano practice. Love, Darcy © Copyright 2005 Darcy Kimmel
