The Navy & The Amish

Wow - what a thought!

Alan and I were looking across the dining hall at Camp Gospel in Pass Christian, MS, and commenting on one very unusual combination.

Alan said: "Look how the Navy Officers from Annapolis (a large group of volunteers under the leadership of Campus Crusade) and the Amish dudes are hanging out together". We agreed that that's just not normal. Peace loving folks and trained warriors don't normally play and laugh and eat together...

Alan commented: "No where else do people from such varying backgrounds hang out and enjoy each other like this..."

And then it hit me..."except in heaven!"

Isaiah 11:6 (NCV) Then wolves will live in peace with lambs, and leopards will lie down to rest with goats...

There is something amazing when you are on mission together: you get along.

This proves itself true over and over: When people work shoulder to shoulder, they don't fight or bicker, or complain. Instead, they laugh and love and life is good.

That's a lesson we can all learn!

I miss my Amish and Navy friends! Heaven will be so cool!
