The Mini-Vacation

We had a mini-vacation yesterday afternoon. Our daughter had her first soccer game and she did great. Her team won the first game, so all the parents were excited and proud! Her team did not win the second game, but all the parents were still excited and proud! Since we had to cancel our vacation this year we told our kids that we would take a day to play, so after the soccer game we went to a favorite restaurant to eat. It was a big treat. We hadn't been there in a long time and it felt good to sit down to a nice lunch and just watch our kids enjoy their food. They were hungry and they ate a lot of food, both of them chatting away about various things.
After eating we headed out to play mini golf, ride go-carts and play arcade games. It was a fun day, and our kids went away feeling like it was "the best day ever!" It was time well spent, and they enjoyed our company, we enjoyed their company, and, dare I say? They even enjoyed each other!
I really missed going to the coast this year; it's the highlight of my year. But, as I surrender that to God and confess that He is sovereign, I have been able to see the blessings He has given us this week in staying home. Blessings in our family, our friends, and in solitude. It has been nice.
I have been rested, challenged, happy, joyful, sad, peaceful, restless, angry, forgiven. Always Captured in His Hands!
Say That Again, Sweet Jesus, You know my life far better than I do, and You will provide for me exactly what I need and what my family needs. Thank you.
