God's Gift To Us

For at least two years I had prayed that God would open doors so that somehow and in someway we would be able to take a family vacation. Since our family dynamics have changed so much in the last few years and we've only had 3 vacations as a family, this was very important to me.
I also prayed that we would be able to take that vacation in Florida as the kids had never been to there nor seen the ocean (that they remember).

Nobody knew my prayer, just God and me.
I didn't pray consistently or fervently, I just asked - it seemed so unnecessary when there is so much suffering and lack of even good hygiene, food and water in our world. was a longing...a time to make special memories....

And then - out of the blue - we were given this Florida vacation
Special thanks to those that gave....not even knowing of the prayer....

I don't have one of these at my house! :)

The grounds at this time share were gorgeous!!
I loved taking my morning walk here!

The view of our balcony - third floor on the end.

View from the balcony.

Some very high guy insisted that this bird sit on the shoulder of Alicia.
Then he said he wanted $5 since we took her picture!

David ... his job is getting to him...

Love these guys!!!

Love these girls!!!

These are just a few pictures...what a great time!
God provided enough for lodging, gas, van rental, food, and freebie sightseeing.
We were so blessed and so happy!!!
