1. The opportunity to spend an entire week away, just the two of us. This is something we have not done since our honeymoon, decades ago. We've taken vacations, yes, but always with family. This focused time together was a blessing for both of us.
2. The gorgeous fall foliage that is surrounding us right now. Such a great reminder of God's power in Creation and also of His faithfulness. Genesis 8:22 is one of my favorite verses -- "While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
3. Time to fellowship with Christian friends. We've been blessed with some wonderful friends and we are so thankful that we could spend time with many recently. Breakfast out with our dear friends from Wisconsin, supper at our cabin with a couple, coffee at our cabin with friends we hadn't seen in years, lunch at our friend Charlotte's cabin, Sunday lunch at our home with dear friends from Indiana, and supper out with these same visiting friends on Tuesday. We feel so blessed!
