The week was ending for youth campers at Frontenac Methodist Camp beside Lake Pepin, between Red Wing and Lake City, MN. Having previously been a Frontenac youth camper from my home church in West Concord, I was now a volunteer helper.
Evening vespers along the lake were always spiritually uplifting. This time I would be leaving Frontenac and Minnesota. My destination was Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico. I would be teaching second grade in the Base School. Psalm 121 went with me from Vespers by Lake Pepin that evening and has been with me all these years.
Psalm 121 NIV
I lift up my eyes to the hills—
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you––
the Lord is your shade at your right
The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm––
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and
