Time for a weekly post

I just realized the last time I posted was a week ago, and thought it might be about time to check back in.

We're on vacation this week. A real, honest-to-goodness vacation; the kind we haven't had in years. All thanks to some dear friends in our home church, who gave us a week at a time share. What a HUGE blessing! Thanks again, Dennis and Lois!!!

We've never had a vacation before where our primary activity was SLEEPING but we're thoroughly enjoying it :)  We're also getting quite a bit of reading done, and I keep drawing floor plan after floor plan. I can't seem to stop.

To be honest, we haven't ventured far from our lovely, AIR CONDITIONED room. And here's a clue as to why:
Even though Ivan had the a.c. in the car re-charged before we left, it's not working so I have no desire to go very far in it. Basically we leave only to have lunch at a restaurant or buy food to eat in our room for dinner. 

And each day we walk over to the club house where there is wifi, to check e-mails and see what's happening in the world.

We had no idea how tired we were until we got here and started relaxing....and sleeping, then sleeping, and sleeping some more. It's been a pretty crazy year, and we're so grateful for this week to unwind and REST.

Looking forward to starting the new year fresh and ready to go. Meanwhile...

Wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed and joyful Christmas!

I understand what you mean about a vacation. You don't even get started unwinding until the fourth or fifth day! Don't you think maybe God had that in mind when He invented the seasons?
