Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17 NIV
Thank God for hotels. Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling in Halleluiah and he is certainly better than that tent we used to sleep in but sometimes, enough is enough! You just need to stretch out.
I’d been feeling claustrophobic for days. Every time Mommy stopped the car, I’d go to barking. She understood my problem and usually let me outside for a little while. Today, she left me alone in Halleluiah while she rode “The Mighty Ducks” through the Wisconsin Dells. Don’t get me started again about people not allowing dogs places.
I think Mommy gets tired of sleeping in Halleluiah because after about 2 weeks of camper living, we got a hotel. I got excited tonight when Mommy started pulling into hotels and saying, “I have 2 questions – do you have room and do you take dogs?”
After the third no, Mommy said, “I don’t think Illinois is very dog friendly. How do you feel about sleeping in Halleluiah tonight and letting me sleep in a hotel.”
I thought that was a terrible idea and started to protest when I realized she was kidding. Finally, we found a hotel that took dogs and I thought Mommy would never get all her stuff packed. We’ve been back to that tiny camper three times. No matter how much I barked, Mommy just kept packing stuff. She already had my food so I didn’t really care what else she took.
So for tonight, I thank God for the good and perfect gift of a hotel. Mommy and I can stretch out and I can sleep in the bed beside her. When we get back in Halleluiah tomorrow, we’ll thank God for the good and perfect gift of Halleluiah and be ready to spend another 2 weeks living in our fun rolling missionary home.
