We are great camp hosts and learned that many people actually came to the campground because of the reviews we received! I worked with every camper to get the site they wanted or needed, and I always filled my no-show sites by calling reservations to confirm campsites. To have an open site brought joy to everyone who drove through and suddenly found themselves a campsite. We gave out bear spray to guests that had none, and we gave out marshmallow sticks so campers wouldn’t cut down trees. We helped big rigs back-in and pull-out, jump vehicles, ran shuttles, and offered space for those who had issues with leaving –– lost keys in the river fishing. I had a Naturalist board and a children’s hike sheet for learning about the plants, berries, and animals in the campground. We truly were more than camp hosts –– we were recreational advisors, too.
Dance – Hebrew: Machol
The Hebrew word machol means ‘dance. Its root comes from chuwl and means ’round dance’ or ‘circle dance.’ This is not an individual dance, but a group that dances in a circle. Chuwl is the ‘father of Heman’ who was a worship singer in Solomon’s Temple (1 Chronicles 25:6, 1 Chronicles 6:18, 1 Chronicles 16:41). This suggests that there was dancing in the Temple along with musical instruments. Machol is found 6 times in Scripture.
Praise, Ringing Cry – Hebrew: Ranan
When Yeshua rode into Jerusalem, the people cried ‘Hoshanna’ and wanted him to restore the Kingdom to Israel. However, some of the leaders wanted the disciples to reprimand the people for shouting. Yeshua responded: “I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones will shout!”
Praise, Thanksgiving – Hebrew: Todah
After the Jews returned to Jerusalem and rebuilt the Temple, choirs offered praises of thanksgiving. Todah is found 32 times in the Scriptures.
