Rewind a few months: I had been hoping to plan a get away for Adam and I around our anniversary as we haven’t had, but maybe one “non work related” vacation in our entire marriage. I looked at different bed and breakfasts within a few hours of our home, but I just kept thinking, “I don’t think we’re bed and breakfast people. We’re more cabin-in-the-woods people”. So I never made a registration. Fast forward back to the weekend of Adam’s lay-off. Our 8th wedding anniversary was the following Tuesday. As we made arrangements for friends and family to watch the kids and the dog, it worked out for us to go up to this cabin on our anniversary and stay for three days, two nights. That was a blessing we couldn’t have seen coming. I wanted to get away with my husband, but saw us in a cabin not a b&b…. and that is what the Lord gave us. What kindness in the midst of the storm!
We didn’t know what to expect of this cabin, although my cousin’s friend assured me it wasn’t rustic and was more like a house. We would have been more than happy with rustic, but again the kindness of the our Father gave us a beautiful QUIET home to stay in for three days.
Had it not been beastly hot, we probably would have spent much of our time praying and reading here on the porch.
In quietness and trust shall be your strength… Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice: blessed are all those who wait for Him.
Is. 30:15b & 18
