On Wednesday night, my mom's best friend called her and offered for us to stay at her beautiful beach house for a few nights. Blessing. Blessing. Blessing.

Though we're sort of already "on vacation" and "out of town", this transition season had just really started to wear on us this week. Fundraising is, well, fundraising and while we're glad to be with family and friends down here in the South - our hearts are longing for Boston and to minister to our people. All in good time though, right?

So anyhow, we jumped at the chance. We've actually never been on a family VACATION. Like, just us, at a place, with no business to attend to but enjoying one another and really trying to take in the rest and restoration the Lord has for us. So we're beyond thankful.

Here are some snippets of what you'll find us doing in the next few days.

I pray whatever you're up to this weekend, it's restful and restorative.
And that the minutes positively crawl.
