Fruitful Creations

I have been blessed in so many ways and by so many people. The latest family to bless our family and who are truly laying up treasures in heaven is the Chapas. Like the McDonalds, the Stouffers, the Lovetts, and the Richardsons they have opened their home to our family and made us feel very welcome. What is amazing is the gift of hospitality that these families have chosen to give freely. James and Stacy McDonald (and two of their ten children) were the only ones that we had met in person the year before. The others have opened their home to practically strangers.

Mrs. Chapa has a business that I think you would be interested in.

The above picture is just one wall vinyl that she has created for her home and already my mind is spinning with ideas for where to place them in my own home.

Those are amazing! I once tried to write out the fruit of the spirit on my kitchen wall but it looked so goofy. Maybe next month there will be something beautiful like this in my future!

Well, I'm not sure I know what these are (besides beautiful). What is their purpose? What do you do with them? I'm glad you are still having a wonderful time and I remember that hospitality is one of the gifts of the saints and these families have all been so welcoming to you, true followers of the Son of God. May our great and mighty God give each and every one of them a blessing for a gift well done, and not withheld in the slightest way. Heather, you have made eternal friendships with these dear brothers and sisters in Christ and I thank God that they were able to minister to you the way they have. The gift of hospitality is so often overlooked simply because it may not be as exciting as, say, tongues or prophecy. God is just so good to continue blessing you every day. I'm still praying for your health for all of you on this trip and for safety on the roads. You will probably be home within the next week or so and I look forward to your getting home because I would imagine you're probably ready to be home. To sit in your favorite chair and to sleep in your own beds. I think it is so great that you have found such extraordinary people to meet along the way!
