We began our first day of vacation today! Friends of ours in our church are letting us stay at their cabin on the lake, and it such a blessing! We were originally thinking of camping, but were reticent to do so with our almost two-year-old. Instead, even though they weren’t able to be here at the same time, they are still allowing us to use all of their facilities.
It’s quite the step up from camping. It has power, indoor plumbing, a refrigerator and microwave, a deck with a gorgeous view, and an amazing wood-burning stove that doubles as heat for the rooms. Not only this, but they left it fully stocked for us. Plenty of toilet paper, towels on the rings, dishes, wood - even food. When it comes to taking care of a little one, it really does make it immensely easier. We are so thankful for their hospitality!
I love how God works on behalf of His children, and brings particular people and resources together. I also love how it is a blessing to be able to be a blessing, as our friends are getting to experience. I hope that God has a return blessing in store for us to be able to give to them. The good Lord reigns!
