Gifts of Rest [222-244]

I'm still playing catch-up from our vacation, hence the sparse blog posts. Nevertheless, memories of family, friends, sunshine, the ocean and laughter are fresh in our minds as we work at righting our house and ridding it of ants.

God's gifts were abundant those 10 days, and as I typed them into my phone while we drove back, I realized just how incredibly blessed we are.
