This past week my hubby and I have been serving at InnKeeper Ministries while Bob & Jan are out of town. Over the last 10 years we have stayed here many many times, we even renewed our vows for our 15 year wedding anniversary here. We have been guests and we have been workers. However, this time has been different. As we were cleaning rooms after the last guests left I was cleaning in the bathroom and became so overcome with emotion. I realized that after all of these years this time we are here serving other servants of God; God’s shepherds. As I was cleaning the toilet of all places I prayed and thanked God for this blessing. I have such an amazing feeling and such deep gratitude for the honor of being able to serve in this place and to be able to help two of the most selfless, wonderful people we know. I can certainly say that over the last 10 years of knowing the Hartenstein’s that they are a family after God’s own heart. They love God, their family and others with such a willingness to be and do anything that God calls them to. I am thankful for the many years that this couple, Bob and Janet Hartenstein have poured into us. Janet is certainly the entire package of what a godly woman is, she is my mentor and I know hubby feels the same about Bob.
Today my blessing came while cleaning the toilet!
