Day 42: Life is for Service.

We said goodbye to the team from Asbury last night since they were hitting the road at 5:00 this morning. I heard the front door close around 4:45 and figured they were loading up their bags. In the time it took me to brush my teeth and get downstairs, they were gone -- so unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to express my thanks to their team as a whole.

Either way, it was great getting to know these young people this week and to see their passion for helping others. Twenty years ago, as I left high school, I wanted to be like that. Now, as a parent, I want my kids to be like that.

It is said that when Fred Rogers was in college, he found inspiration in a sign he often passed on campus. The sign simply read:

"Life is for service."

The Summer of Tim continues...
