Have you ever been given a gift that you know you can't possibly repay? One that blesses
you more than words can ever say? Our family was given that gift this past week.
It started several months ago, when a couple that we've become acquainted with at
church asked us a simple question.
They said "Does your family ever get away?"
We smiled, and said that it tended to be "day trips" with a family of 8.
The next week they showed up with a book of destinations. They were offering us a week at
their timeshare, anywhere we wanted to go! We were overwhelmed. People don't give a
family of 8 a vacation, it just doesn't happen!
We'd never been to dinner with this couple, never had them in our home, and only gotten
to know them in the past year, but they chose to bless our family in this way.
And what a blessing it was my friends.
I can't even begin to tell you.
Our entire family spent a week at the beach, in a lovely 3 bedroom condo. Both of our older
sons were able to come too. We all had a wonderful time.
Thank you so much Larry and Aleen.
You've exemplified Christ's example of offering a gift that can never be repaid.
It has meant so much to our whole family. More than you'll ever know.
Words cannot begin to express the joy and thankfulness we feel in
