Have a Green Apple Day ...

I wanted to share a little tale with you... As I was washing apples this morning, I decided today was a green apple day... I will dub all great God blessings as "green apple days"... Let me explain, just last Friday I was explaining to my hubby that I was praying through the feelings of being envious... Yep, I was having an envious pity party if you will... Everyone all around us, friends and family seem to leave every long weekend or school break to go on these fun vacays... While we on the other hand work our "tails" off and have absolutely no extra funds for get aways... See pity party... My hubby gently reminded me not to be envious and that the Lord would bless us in His timing... Fast forward 3 days... My hubby calls me yesterday and asks if I can get Friday off... I guess I could why? You see yesterday was his first day at his NEW "old" job {that is another post} anyway his company is having a convention this coming weekend, the owner informed Spike he was going to try and get him a ticket last minute... Yep, he was able to get him a ticket, but all the rooms were booked, so Spike had to "settle" for the Spa Suite... The owner then said, why don't you bring your wife... Oh yeah... I can get Friday off... We leave Thursday and don't return until late Sunday... You see not only did God bless us with an ALL expense trip, but HE never does anything small... We have the SPA SUITE... Yep, it's definitely a green apple day!
