Can I tell you that God's "Favor" is so amazing!!
I don't even have my photos edited as of yet, but I have been so excited to share just how comforting and peaceful our trip to Branson was.
This past Wednesday, Sam and I made an "Out of the Blue" decision, to leave Friday morning for a drive up to Branson... This is a 8 hour....PLUS.....drive from our part of the Country.
We left early Friday morning and we ended up taking the scenic route.....all the way to Missouri!! It ended up taking us 13 hours to arrive at the "Chateau on the Lake" located on beautiful, Table Rock Lake.
For me, it was a pure JOY ride!! I loved every minute of this trip.
Let me talk about God's "Favor." These are happenings that I know God provided or placed before us. If any of you have ever been to the "Chateau on the Lake" hotel, then you know that the parking lot is a bit steep. To avoid the $18.00 per night valet parking fee, we decided to park our own car.
We have been to this hotel many times and never have I seen a front row parking spot (Available) ......but this time there was one. It was open...just for us. What a wonderful Blessing!
Our breakfast on Sat. morning was so very relaxing! The food was good, the view of the calm, blue lake was even better and enjoying all of this with Sam, was the Best of the Best.
.....The weather was everything that I had hoped for! Day time temps were in the upper 60's and the night time temps dropped down, way low! It felt so good and was so refreshing!!
One of the main things on our agenda was to see...."Jonah" at the Sight and Sound theater! Perfect seating!!! The show was more than awesome!
Another thing on our list was to eat the fabulous pizza at
"Florentina's Ristorante Italiano" located on Green Mountain Road. Oh my...the best stone oven pizza, ever!!
People were standing in line....lots of people.....waiting to be seated. I walk up to the hostess desk and just as I'm about to give our name, a young waiter looks at me and says: "Follow me." I said: "don't we need to sign in first?"
He said, "No".....just follow me! Talk about God's favor?....His favor was all around us! I felt guilty, but....what could I say.
As we were driving home on Sunday.....we stopped at a "Cracker Barrel" to eat lunch. Once again, the place was packed and the big porch was full of people waiting to be seated... I gave the hostess our name and I inquired as to how long the wait would be. She assured me that there would be at least a 20 to 25 min wait.
I went to the restroom and I immediately hear them call.....Sam, party of 2. I went out to the hostess stand and ask it there was another (Sam, party of 2).....She said: "No"
and told me they were ready to seat us! WOW! Not even a 5 min. wait.
These things did not all happen by accident.....it was God's favor! This entire trip....(I do believe) was ordered by God. HE knew the "rest" that was needed, not only in my body, but in my mind as well...
Thank you Lord.
More on our trip to come later...
