Sweet Fellowship

I am a people person

So it is not a surprise to me that God will many times use people to encourage my heart. 

As we continue on our journey of waiting on God, we were blessed with a weekend of sweet fellowship with special friends at a lake house north of here.

It was so refreshing to be able to let our hair down, relax, laugh till we cried, play games, take in God's creation on a boat and sleep till 8:00am!

However, the most meaningful time for me was Sunday morning when we had church on their front porch.  Sitting with friends who love us, but love God more was truly a blessing.  Singing together, hearing from God's Word, praying together and then sharing communion together filled this weary heart to the brim.  

This morning I am still smiling as I recall the sweet memory.

And as one of my friends, whose husband has also lost his job, so beautifully said...

 " I tore the bread, offering it to my husband and as it was torn by Sara for me, and dipped in wine, I KNEW ALL was and WOULD BE WELL because it became even more evident that God who gave His Only Son for me, would He not with that gift, not freely give me ALL things that I need??!! O YES!"

What a wonderful reminder. You friend said it so perfectly! Yes He will!

I'm so glad you were given this time of refreshment.

I am so sorry to hear your husband lost his job but it sounds like this trip was in order and what a blessed reminder that he takes care of all things for you Sara, great and small. God's at work, and his will shall be revealed in his timing. God Bless and praying for you and the husband!

My heart finds so much restoration at "lake houses". On Saturday we're going far north in Wisconsin to my favorite cabins...even my Marine son will be there for many of the days. I can't wait to canoe with him, to see the islands, to just be. And, all the more to be with Christian friends. I have far too few of them in my life.

Blessings on your week, my friend. xo
