Summer of Blessings

I wanted to share with you the wonderful vacation we had the privilege of taking in June. I haven't posted in full about this because I'm still overwhelmed with it all and just don't feel I can express in words how big a blessing it was to our family. Hopefully the pictures will do the talking! (and there will be LOTS of them) :)

Over a year ago Brian stumbled upon this website We took the time to fill out the application and thought we'll just see what happens. What happened was that God blessed our family in a BIG way!! :) We were approved and were offered a two week stay at the most b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l home in Deland Florida!! Two weeks...two SOLID weeks away from home. We have NEVER done that before!! What a wonderful time to unwind, relax, refresh and renew!!

The kids finished school on Friday and we headed south Saturday morning. We stayed in Georgia so that we would be able to worship with the Hill family on Sunday morning at their church in Americus. Brian was on staff with Pastor Steve at Bryant Wesleyan. Our kids grew up together and it was such a great time to get together with them again. For some reason I didn't take ANY pictures of this...not sure why but :(

Fun in the van!!

The amazing house! When we got settled in Joseph said, "Mom, this feels just like home!" I had to giggle knowing this was NOTHING like our house...but he was right. For those two weeks that was our home as we were together as a family enjoying one another!! God is good! :)
