One thing we love here at the Pine Cove Timbers are cabin challenges! Cabin challenges are proposed and accepted after lunch. Today, Chickasaw 4 challenged the girls of Chickasaw 3 to a skittles eating contest.
During the second half of free time, tensions were high as the girls of both cabins closed their eyes to determine the flavor of the skittles given to them. In no way were the flavors of the skittles easy to guess. Just like the skittles, sometimes God puts unexpected trials into our life that are hard to understand and figure out. However, our job as Christians is to take these unexpected trials thrown our way and face them with joy even though we might not see the big picture at the time.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
