This weekend, Rachel came home from college and brought three sweet friends with her. Our home was filled with lots of giggles, college-pranks, blow-up mattresses to accommodate our guests, sounds and smells of delicious home-made meals, and the sound of my dishwasher. I think I used my dishwasher three times on Saturday.
Our house and our hearts were full this weekend and we enjoyed every second! This morning, as I had my quiet time with the Lord, I thanked Him once again for both of our daughters being home this weekend, and for the joy and laughter we shared, and for sweet friends who came too. My prayer is that they feel like they can come back again any time and that our home was somehow a refuge for them....a place to feel loved, to be well fed, to hopefully get caught up on a little sleep (breakfast was served around noon on Saturday morning), a place they know that they are always welcome. What a gift to have our home flooded with joy and laughter and new friends this weekend!
