"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

Bunk Beds

This post is about an answer to prayer.

I believe that God cares about things like the desire to find a bunk bed set with a full bed on the bottom and a twin on top.

A few days ago, after praying about it off and on for a few months, the Lord provided just what we had wanted through friends who were giving this set away!

 Rachel and Sarah share a small room and we did have two twin beds in here.  They are so happy to have more floor space now.

 Rachel quickly claimed the bottom bed and is happy that her cello now has room to reside in her room.  I am happy too, because it was living in my bedroom!

Sarah was thrilled to get the top bunk!  She said "I'm so excited!  I've never slept on a top bunk before!"  Rachel thought about this for a few minutes and said "Maybe we can trade off sometimes!"  

I love my girls!  I am so thankful for their tender hearts and for their thankfulness at God's provision.

I'm so glad that God does care about the "little" things! What a great answer to prayer.

Is the bedroom blue on top and green on bottom? My eyes may be playing tricks on me. I didn't even know that such beds were available...a good idea! God is so good. Sarah looks so happy up there!

Very nice. And Rachel gets to put her cello to very good use on Sunday, right?

What a wonderful gift! One of the passages in The Daily Light this morning was the one about the ten lepers, only one of whom returned to offer thanks for his healing. I love that you are thanking Jesus for this gift! And I love that the girls are so happy!

I love these God stories. We have many of our own and anyone who asks about our faith gets regaled. This was obviously a blessing, Sarah's beautiful smile says it all!

It's wonderful how the Lord takes care of our needs! And, doesn't it make things easier for Mom when the kids are willing to share?!
