My Hotel Room
Ok, we've been living in a hotel room since April 25...and it's July 29. Why? We've made an international move and instead of immediately finding a house and settling in, we've decided to build one. I was really gripping to the Lord about it and He did two things that changed me completely. First, He told me to count my blessings. When I looked around, I realized how many there are. Secondly, He told me He was providing exactly what I needed to make the massive adjustments of life in America, a husband newly retired, ministry office changes and re-entering our family network after a 7 year absence. What I needed was zero responsibility and that's what I've got. Precious Fay from Jamaica makes our bed and cleans our room each day, sweet Beatrice cooks our breakfast each morning, and cute Anwar at the front desk makes us new keys when we lose ours. Life doesn't get simpler or sweeter than that.
