You aren't going to believe this!!! God is GREAT!!!

My husband just came for lunch. He said he had bad news, worse news, and good news.

Bad news: He wasn't going to be home for dinner
Worse news: We wouldn't be here on the actual day of our youngest's 2nd birthday


GREAT NEWS: He just won an all expenses paid trip for he and I to Atlantis in the Bahamas! No! THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!

He won it through work!! Actually he's dealership won it, and they chose to give it to him. I am so overwhelmed right now!!

We have to get some passports ASAP!! We leave toward the end of June!!

I can't stop crying!!

A Honeymoon!! A real honeymoon!!!

My husband and I got married in October of '99. We paid for it all. His parents did pay for the rehearsal dinner, but everything else fell on us to pay. And it wasn't cheap. We had very little left for a honeymoon. So in October, we took $800 and went to Myrtle Beach, SC. It was cold. It was empty and a lot of places were closed.

And now...we get a FREE trip to the ONE place I have wanted to go for years and years and years! And...NO KIDS!!! My sister, mom, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law are all stepping in to help us by watching them so we can take this incredible trip of a lifetime!

I can't believe this!!!! You guys have NO idea how badly I have wanted this. I check it out online every year. I have prayed, and hoped, and.... I never, NEVER really thought we would be able to go. It's so expensive.

And now...We're going. FOR FREE!!!

God is good!!!

Forgive me Lord for all my doubts I have ever had.
