In the making of wine the nose plays a very significant part. Since the tongue can only taste sweet, bitter, salty and sour, the nose plays a pivotal role in distinguishing the thousands of varieties available in wine. When wine is tasted, it is the nose that will pick up the more subtle flavors, which otherwise might have been missed.
This leads us to a change we are making at The Romantic Vineyard. Since we began this blog in November 2008, Fridays have been known as “Freebie Friday”. It has been the day where free things we came across throughout the week would be mentioned. Since free things are harder and harder to come by, we figured it was time to say…
After talking to our small group from church (made up of several young married couples), we have decided at their request to make a change. One we are very excited about, and we hope you will be too!
The new name of our Friday posts will be: A Fragrant Aroma
It’s redundant on purpose because this is what our Friday posts will entail. We will remember something personal Debi and I experienced in our marriage that week, and we will share it here with you. It may be a humorous story, a sad experience or a sentimental reflection. It can be anything really, but mostly it will be personal. This is our way of opening up our lives and sharing with you what we’re seeing and learning as God is leading us. Just like swirling an ounce of wine around in a glass in order to release the variety of aromas, we will “swirl around” something we’ve experienced for your benefit.
We pray this will be helpful to you as you witness first hand what marriage looks like practically after 31+ years. We also pray the fragrance produced in our vineyard will be a refreshing aroma reaching out to your vineyard, how ever many miles away it may be.
Until next week – Au Revoir!
“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” 2 Corinthians 2:14
