Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was filled with lots of joy and family time. We had an enjoyable weekend filled with faith and family fun. It was nice to be able to spend some time together. I picked out a few of my favorites to share with you on our Weekend Recap: Top 5.
This weekend, S. and I had the joy of attending our church’s marriage ministry relaunch. It was originally under the facilitation of my father and mother in loves, but when she got ill and subsequently passed after a well fought battle with terminal breast cancer, the ministry kind of went quiet. Knowing how much I desperately needed the word and the iron sharpening of other Godly and seasoned married couples, I gave my heart’s desire to God and soon felt pricked to write out a new relaunch proposal.
I knew that S. and I would not be in a facilitator role. There is too much that we still need to grow through and to, plus it wasn’t about us. I prayed the ministry would be of benefit to all of the church congregants. So after playing about with some ideas, a proposal was generated and presented to our pastor, who loved it.
Working with him and other trusted members, the Three Strand, One Flesh Marriage Ministry was created and this past Saturday was the first meeting. Guys, it was phenomenal. Our facilitators (along with Pastor and First Lady) are a Christian couple who have been married for 29 years. They will soon be assisted by Mentors married 49, 15, 10, and 5 respectively. It was such a great event.

A Farmer’s Market. I’ve been waiting for an authentic farmer’s market that I can visit for a while now. There is one in our city, only about two minutes from me….but it only opens on Sundays during the times I am typically at church. So, I miss it over and over again. This past weekend, someone posted about a new farmer’s market open on Saturdays! I’m super excited to visit it for pears to make pear preserves and have some yummy organic treats. I’ll let you guys know how it goes soon!
