Vacation?!?!?!

Guess What?

I've decided you are to have a one week vacation!!!!

Starting as soon as you finish reading this blog post!!!

(OK, I don't really have the authority to give you a vacation -- but bare with me!)

Before you begin...

Here are the rules:

1. You are not to go to work.

2. You are not to do any housework...

No cooking or dishwashing...


No sweeping or vacuuming...


No cleaning the bathroom...


No laundry...

No work AT ALL!!!

Sound good?

So, what would you like to do for your vacation?

Go to the beach?

Or hiking or skiing in the mountains?

Or site seeing in a new city?

Go on a cruise?

Before you get too excited about you plans for your surprise vacation...

I better tell you more of the rules...

3. You must NOT leave your room...

4. You must stay in bed the WHOLE time...

(Yes ALL week long!!!)

5. No, you may not have a book to read...

6. No, you may not use the computer, an I-pod, an I-pad, or a cellphone...

7. No, there will be no TV or radio...

Here's what you CAN do...

I'll hang a clock by your bed...


Feel free to count how many times the second hand goes around the circle each day!

(That should keep you occupied!)

You can count your fingers!

(That won't take long...)

You can look at the ceiling...


Or the wall on the right...


Or the wall on the left...

For as long as you like!!!

And, to make life more interesting...

Instead of your room...

You'll get to spend your vacation in a large room...

With many, many beds...

These beds will be filled with sick and hurting, lonely people...

Like you, they will have nothing to do...

But groan & cry in frustration, pain, boredom, and loneliness...

What!!!!

You don't want your vacation?

You'd rather work hard, clean the bathroom, do laundry and wash dishes?


Well, you can breathe a sigh of releif!!!!

I won't make you take such a "vacation!"

I wouldn't, even if I could.

It would be torture rather than a vacation!

In comparison, all that work sounds so much better!

But while we have the PRIVILEGE of doing chores...

Many INNOCENT people...

Who deserve it no more than we do...

Have the unenviable opportunity to do NOTHING.

They have NO opportunity to do the fun things on our favorite vacation list.

Not even the common, everyday things...

Like visiting the grocery store to buy something good to eat...


Reading a book...


Or playing with a puppy...


This is not a one-week vacation for Victoria...


and Emmitt...


It's not "optional" either!

It is their LIFE...

Day after day...

Year after year...

With NO end in sight!

Where, oh WHERE is their Mama & Papa?

Who will save them from this most miserable vacation?

Please pray they will be delivered from their life sentence...

Of doing nothing for the rest of their life!

Pray that someone will be brave enough...

To step out and rescue these kids...

Trusting God to provide every need!
