This morning, while Tim and Kathi took the dogs and the kids to the beach, I was reading and reflecting on God's kindness to me. "You are faithful in all your works and kind in all your deeds." And this little spot in Cherry Grove has become such a marker of God's kindness to me!

Jack and Emma Grace love this place as much as we do. The day Tim and Kathi offered to fly us up, EG had already asked me, "are we going to Kacki and Poopaw's Beach House this summer?" I told her I didn't know...a parent's kind/somewhat deceitful way of not coming out and saying "No." We had already decided we couldn't afford a trip this summer. Jack often tells me he misses the beach house. So you can imagine their delight when we woke them up Saturday morning and told them we were flying to the beach that day!! When we got here Saturday, Jack busted in the door and said, "I was looking forward to seeing this house!" And EG has been telling us that God knew she really wanted to come and that he decided to surprise her with a trip as an early Bday present. Yes, little one, he is the giver of good gifts. He satisfies you with good, just like he does me.

We'll be back in Florida next week and then Sheryl comes to help me with the kiddos for the last part of Andy's trip. Both this trip to Cherry Grove and Sheryl coming to help me were unasked for SURPRISE answers to prayer. I knew I needed lots of grace to take care of these two on my own for ten days. I didn't know when I asked for grace, God would answer in such delightful ways! "You are faithful in all your works, and kind in all your deeds.!"
