Madrid in May

May 26th, 2011 Categories: blending..., enjoying... 8 comments

Last weekend I finally fulfilled a promise to visit the saints in Madrid, and had a really wonderful time :) LK and I took a long weekend and headed out to sunny Spain, where we were cherished by the care of the saints, saw the sights of the city, experienced the Spanish way of life, and ate lots of yummy food! You’ll be able to see all that if you click through to view the whole post via the link below. But before you do that, here is one thing I appreciate a sister sharing with us soon after we arrived:

Visiting saints have a responsibility to share their Christ with the local saints.

You could think of it like the circulation in the human body – the flow bringing a fresh supply each time it circulates – a picture of the spiritual fellowship in the Body of Christ. So, during the trip I enjoyed touching the Lord a little every morning, a little bit more throughout the day, learning to fellowship with the sister I travelled with, and bringing my enjoyment to the church meeting on the Lord’s day. And if you know me, you know that’s not such an easy thing to do :) But it made my “holiday” a thousand times more worthwhile!

And with that said, you can now go ahead and click through to catch a glimpse of my weekend in Madrid. Enjoy!

Can you believe, this time last week I was in Spain, soaking up the sun, and now I am back in the UK, trying to avoid the rain? Praise the Lord :)

    Amen, ‘Visiting saints have a responsibility to share their Christ with the local saints.’

    It’s always more blessed to give than to receive.
