Haven Of Rest

I just returned from a relaxing 3 days at The Haven of Rest( you can click on the pic on my sidebar). It is located in the boon docks near Crofton, KY. The property has been my favorite place since I was a young child. The land has been in my family for many years and is now owned by my sweet Aunt Gail.
When my aunt and her family first moved to the "country" the only thing that stood was a old log cabin and a few old barns. They did not have running water or electricity. This way of life was a choice for them. They could have lived anyplace that they wanted. They had a real passion for the land. They worked night and day and built a nice home, all by themselves. They now have electricity, water and phones. I believe it took 7 years or so.
After my cousin Renita grew up she built Haven of Rest. It is nestled in the woods. She no longer lives in the cabin. She is now renting it out so others may enjoy it.
My Aunt has prayed for many years that the property could be used for the Lord. The cabin is used many times by ladies retreats and missionaries. I enjoy the peace that I feel there. It is definitely a place that has been blessed by God.
I feel like a new person this week. It was much needed time away from Main Street USA.
