A Fragrant Aroma

Last weekend was the first weekend we’ve had at home together in a long time.  It was long overdue and so enjoyable.  We were like kids on summer vacation from school!

Tom cleaned his workbench, washed both cars.  Then, we took a Skype call from some new friends you’ll hear about next week.  We had never met before and were a little unsure as to how a Skype phone call would go with strangers.  We were immediately at ease.  We talked for about 30 minutes about marriage and what God has called us to do.  It was our first meeting, but most likely not our last.

We got another text from friends asking if we wanted to join them for dinner.  Since we had no plans, we were able to gladly say, “yes.”  Sunday we worshiped God together – something we look forward to each Sunday.  We visited a family member who was in the hospital and came home to prepare some food for our Memorial Day Cookout.  After this we were invited to go to another friend’s new home.  They used to live down the street, but have moved to a bigger home that is simply beautiful!  We talked about so many things, but mostly enjoyed being together.

On Monday, we played golf with our son, Jason.  It was just the three of us, and we had a blast.  As a side note, Jason and Ashley are celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary today! Congratulations!

Happy Anniversary, you two!

Later a few neighbors came over for a cookout and pool party in our backyard.  At the end of the night we were happily tired, but very relaxed.

Every now and then, you have to have a weekend at home to do those things you love to do, like be with family and friends.

This is a slice of our life, and we are loving what God has done!

    It gives me great pleasure to see you enjoying your summer. I pray that as God continues to smile down upon you two, that your summer will only get more exciting. Your blog is such an inspiration to me because it encourages me to be who God created me to be and to happily accept the call that He has placed on our lives to be a blessing to other married couples. Thanks for continuing the work that God has called you to.

    Your sister in Christ,

      Thank you, Saleena, for stopping by our Vineyard and for taking the time to encourage us. We support you wholeheartedly as you endeavor to encourage others in their marriage. We can never have too many bloggers out there building, equipping and supporting marriage. We pray you and Travis have a wonderfully romantic summer as well!
      Blessings to you both,
      Tom and Debi
