It's been a rough year with a major health scare and hospital visit for my oldest, a broken down car, school bills, and constant other needs. One of my biggest prayers and desperate needs for this Christmas break is a get away with my family. The levels of stress that I've been carrying are way too heavy and I need my heart to rest and be filled. We need to get out of the city and lay on a beach somewhere for a few days.
Sounds easy enough since we live on an island right? Not quite. We need a car that is in good enough condition to take us out of town, at least 4 hours drive one way. Then we need someone to watch our dogs and our house (they are high maintenance and anxious). On top of that we need the money. My heart is extra burdened knowing this could be the greatest gift I could give my girls and myself, but I can't make it happen.
This is where it takes a village. We have needs. Yet we know our God is big and always provides. It's just hard living in the middle where the needs pile up and it's hard to see the other side. So, in all humility I set before whoever reads this, our list of needs.
Car repairs/ new car
End of year giving
