2 Cor 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
2 Cor 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
AMEN!! I have the "preach" on me as I type this. LOL
To say all of this I wanted to share some pictures from our vacation we had about a year ago. Donnie and I when we went to the Greenbrier Resort nestled within the mountains of West Virginia. Donnie had won a trip from his company he works for and we were so blessed during those 4 days of heaven. The place we stayed at was absolutely beautiful to give you some sort of idea the running rate for only one night is around $500 and this is just for a small "basic" room. Meals cost around $60 minimum. It was so nice not having to worry about counting our pennies during our time there. We spent nothing! How nice it was to just charge it to the room knowing Donnie's company was paying for it all. How Glorious!!
It's quite funny actually, when I have one of those days at home. I think back to this time last year and pull out the lotion I brought back from this place and rub it into my hands, close my eyes and smell away. The scent brings me back to how I felt during those 4 days of luxury....GLORIOUS.
I can't even begin to mention how nice it was and how hospitable the people who work there were: Door's being opened for us; When we dined they pulled the chairs out for me and placed those clean, white napkins on our laps; There were fresh, white, cozy robes in our romantic bedroom; Our beds "turned" for the night with chocolates on our pillows... I can go on and on. Oh, we enjoyed massages....YES....what a fabulous time. Oh, and not to mention the food and the scenery of this gorgeous place. It was amazing!
My favorite part of our time was having no demands. Absolutely none!! No needing to change a diaper; Not having to wake up early and make breakfast; Not having to do laundry; Not having to stop sibling bickering.....BUT.....just being able to RELAX!! During the afternoons, Donnie and I would walk down to the main lobby (it was a museum.... not just a little sitting area) and have our afternoon "tea" with little delectable cookies (not Keeblers LOL) while listening to a musician playing a beautiful Grand Piano. How glorious...How beautiful! After eating our little cookies we would sit down on comfy couches and read our bibles or books and just, plain....RELAX!! What a great time we had.
Here are a few pictures I had to share!!
