Last week the four of us went to Orlando (September 1-5). Why does one travel to Orlando the first week in September during hurricane season? Well, its cheaper then. Gustav passed on one side and Hanna the other while we enjoyed scorching hot, humid, and sunny weather. We enjoyed our summer heat for five days in September.
We had fun together! I can’t overemphasize how important this is. In family our lives are interconnected with one another. During this season we have found both the joys and stresses of ministry life to have impacted all of us to varying degrees. Intuitively all of us know this makes sense and yet our focus when the need for rest is diagnosed is more individual while perhaps forgetting the family unit that needs attention.
So I am grateful to God who impressed on our minds the need to get away for a few days as a family. We had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the blessing of God in our lives.
