We are incredibly blessed with some friends who let us stay in their condos while we are there. Really...we couldn't afford to go if it wasn't for their generosity. They are a true blessing to our family. Even if it's a trip to Branson or the lake, we have always made vacation with our family a priority. In ministry...it's needed...time away to just be a family...some of our best memories.
Another aspect is...God's beauty...there is nothing like the beach....and the mountains...to me atleast...that screams God's creation. I rejoice in the fact that when non-believers are admiring creation...they don't know it or won't admit it atleast...that they are praising our Lord. It's His...he made it all!
Who's counting...me! We have so much on our calendar from today until we leave. With the end of another school year it brings all kinds of activities with the kids...graduations...weddings...Matt & I will also be in Tennessee for a week in May also. Needless to say...it shifts into high gear now! But No complaining people...I know at the end of it all I will be relaxing with my marvelous family!!!
Hope each of you get away and enjoy your family together this summer! Even if it's a small trip...I encourage you to save & budget for it!! You will not regret it! Those kids will be grown & gone before we know it!!
