Little Elves...

Our family home has had some quirks since we bought it. And we had gained some extras as time has gone on. Our littles have needed some services more than we have needed a kitchen sink that didn't turn itself off. Back in October, one of our toilets broke. And our replacement toilet didn't fit under the countertop. When Chris had surgery in October (I know - it was a killer month) he fell into our bathroom wall creating a giant hole. It's just stuff - little annoyances here and there that we just could never get to.

Over Christmas, we were able to spend a glorious week of vacation with my family...the 4 of us together for 8 days was a sweet, sweet thing. We got home and mourned that our time together was coming to an end. And then we noticed: the drywall down our hallway had been repaired. And then we noticed a working toilet. And less of a countertop. And a working sink. And no more hole in our bathroom. Little elves had entered while we had been away and blessed us tremendously with not just the gift of repairs, but of more TIME as a family. These acts of service were beyond kind, they were a clear reminder that God does see the littlest details. The anonymous givers blessed a hard-working husband and father, and brought much celebration into our home.
