Playdate ~ Luxury Room

Play date in Tacoma, in a  room of luxury.
Time with the girl friends and a little fun.
We had a beautiful luxurious room with all the beauty a girl dreams about.
You have rich colors to go with luxury rooms. Prints as wild and colorful as the room it self.
Or as wild as you are. In my case as wild as I am!
For some it could have been the soothing colors of peaceful rest and enchantment of relaxation.
Maybe it was a bit of both for me.
It was a wonderful evening in this room of luxury.
Soft cozy pillows with warm cozy blankets on top a wonderful mattress.
Fit for a Queen!
Oh yes! I'm sure! I'm her!
The rich colors a reminder of the splendor that God richly wants to bless us with everyday.
The luxury of knowing that each day we have is because He loves us.
He blesses us with His richest blessing.
He wants to pour out His best gifts upon us daily.
We just have to be willing to open that gift and enjoy it.
What is your gift wrapped up like?
It could be this room or the one at home.
Or maybe it is that new pair pants or sweater that keeps us warm.
We just have to be willing to open and enjoy it daily whatever it is.
This weekend was a few weeks ago.
But I so wanted to share this room and the beauty and richness of it.
I took lots of pictures so that was part of the play date.
I love taking pictures. I'm finding that is a play date in of itself.
I was there to learn and instead it was shortened a bit.
But God always knows what He is doing.
I had fun stretching out on this lounge as you see.
I would love to have a room big enough to put one of these luxury lounges in.
It would be so wonderful!
As you can see I'm surely having a grand time.
I'm waiting upon my Hand Maiden and Butler.
They just never arrived. I think they didn't get the memo.
So for a short period of time when I travel in style, I feel like a Queen.
I'm sure that is what I am!
I think the Lord wants us to feel this way everyday not just when we travel or when we are with our friends.
We are His children and that means we our His princess and princes, His heirs, joint heirs.
So we should be living in His luxury everyday.
Enjoying the gifts He sets out for us to find along the way. He places them on our paths daily just waiting for us to pick them up and unwrap each one.We have many we take for granted as well.
Our sight to see the beauty all around us.
Ears to hear the laughter of joy.
As well as see and hear the pain and loss of sorrow.
So that we might be that gift to that one in need.
Our legs and arms to dance before Him.
Our voice to Praise Him.
And so many more. 
He wants us to enjoy life and life to the fullest.
Not taking one minute for granted.
We should take time to enjoy the journey, smell the roses.
Hug the babies, play in the field with the dandelions.
Run in the sun, throw the ball for a child and toss one for the dog.
Love on our family and friends.
See the love and beauty in each morning sunrise and at the close of each sunset.
These are the gifts.
My luxury room is just the reminder of the beauty that surrounds me.
It is just the bonus gift of luxury in a day of fun and beauty.
It was a wonderful play date in a luxury room. 
Fit for a Queen for a night.
That would be me.
Or at least in my mind.
Oh what fun!
I can hardly wait to find the Queens next adventure.
It always seems when I go to play, God shines out brightly pulling out all the best gifts.
I can hardly wait to see what the next one will be.

Romans 8:17
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint -heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we maybe also glorified together.

Do you feel like a Queen or King when you stay in a luxury Hotel?

This makes me smile so big! That picture of you is just so fun! I like the spirit of this post best though--this is the idea behind playdates: he always wants us to invite Him along, no matter what we are doing.

I'm glad you invited him along on this one, Beth!
