Picking up where I left off yesterday, I had run in CVS to get a few things and felt my phone vibrate. David had called and left a message saying he had arranged for us to switch rooms and we needed to pack up our room asap and get it moved!
We quickly packed it up and headed back to our room where David had done most of the packing up! We weren't sure where we were moving, but he had been told they would make sure it had two beds so that our girls would have a place to sleep.
So, we got out of our room as quickly as we could and headed back to the front desk to swap keys and get switched. We were down the road (this was a BIG resort!) a ways and began following our map to our new room.
We pulled up outside a building that looked like an apartment building - beautiful! I didn't want to get my hopes up based on the outside - but it looked to be very promising!
We traipsed everyone upstairs to check it out before bringing our things in and ... WOW! It was a two bedroom, two bathroom condo with a full kitchen, living room, washer and dryer, screened in porch, etc... There was even a crib so we didn't need to bring ours in!
The walk in closet was huge and that became Samuel's room! The second bedroom had two twin beds - perfect for our little ladies! And, off the screened patio was a beautiful pond with waterfall and we even saw some ducks swim through!
The first thing we did was grab hands and say a prayer of thanks to God for His generous blessing to us! We could have stayed in the other room and we would've made the best of it - but God chose to bless us abundantly!
He could have allowed us to purchase an upgrade in advance, but instead He gave us this upgrade at no extra cost!
He could have allowed us to receive a regular room in the first place, but instead He gave us a place that was like a home for the week! It was a perfect fit for our family and I had two Scriptures come to mind that day ...
The first one was regarding the parable of the talents, when the servant was faithful to manage what he had - he was given more, "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things." ~ Matthew 25:21
The second was, "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and even! Amen." ~ Ephesians 3:20-21
What a blessing God poured out on us to allow us free use of this wonderful place for a week! Thank You, Lord, for your abundant blessings in our lives! What abundant provision are you praising God for this week?
