Camp Revival

Good Tuesday Morning to you. I hope you are having a good week, and maybe enjoying the pretty springtime weather. Today's picture shows a Camp Revival meeting on the South Concho River. You can see the kids having a good time swimming in the river, and you can see some of the camp tents in the background.


  1. What a fun time to be had on a hot sunner day in Texas.

    Just curious, does the South Concho River have much of a flow, or is it more of reservoir?
    I remember you showing them building a spillway dam on the River about a week ago.

  2. Another great photo that brings back some cherished memories!
    I remember back in the day when me and my pals would swim in the Susquehanna river. Sometimes my pal Chet would challenge us to a diving contest from the Water Str. Bridge, the water was partly shallow so you had to be careful where you landed. And you know what? All of us came out in one piece!!
    Not like today's kids, who wouldn't even approach a riverbank let alone swim in a river.
    They will tell you that it's too dangerous or the water is too dirty. Darn!!!
    Like my Grandpa told me many moons ago, "A little dirt whether from the ground or the water ain't gonna kill ya." He was right, of course; I carry his lessons with me everyday of my life.
    You see the kids in this photo and they seem to be so much more grounded than kids now. Kids today have it too easy and they don't know what real fun is all about what with their electronic contraptions and the like.
    Some of them could use a trip to the woodshed or just some real good ol' learning and a footing in the teaching of the Lord.

    Even as a generation Xer this photos bring found memories of river baptism from my youth in Southern Ohio.

    Contray to your beleives, I being "a kid of today" grew up on a river and spent many of hours swimming, fishing canoeing etc. I think some of your thoughts on "kids of today" are unfounded MOM.

  5. Mean Old Man:
    I know what you mean. And I am apart of this generation. It is sad to see the declining of our nation and the fact that these kids will one day be running the country is a startling thought.
    YWS: If you just go to the local super market you will see what MOM is referring to. I see it everyday and like I said it's my generation. I don't have the memories to compare like RTD and MOM do. But I don't need the memories. All you need is respect for folks like RTD, PJM, and MOM to see it.

  6. No springtime weather here but always a good week learning something from your posts. Thanks.

  7. is this old picture of the day site or old fogies ranting site

  8. Anon,
    Perhaps you should post under a real name and join the conversation.

    I really don't like Anonymous drive by shooters.


  9. HMMMMM. cool site though.

  10. Great Picture..... wish I could go back there!

  11. It looks like they set up a rope swing with a tire base over the river. How much fun that must have been! The many "rules and regulations" now might not allow some of these fun times.

  12. Beautiful picture. I love it when I see people accepting God gift of grace and mercy!! Truly exciting!!

  13. Nostalgia is the art of remembering the past GOOD times while forgetting the BAD. Think about it. Good site though.
