Indoor Grilling with the ten Hoeve's

We enjoyed a "Dutch evening" at our friends' Gerben and Julie's complete with indoor grill.  As Gerben described, we were to take whatever food we wished (pieces of steak, chicken, meatballs, peppers, onions, and the like), and place them on the grill. It offered the opportunity to converse and linger while our dinner cooked. What a marvelous time!  We love this dear family and have cherished our friendship with them through the years.  God bless you, ten Hoeve's!

Starting the Day with Valentine's

When I was a kid, I always remember my mom having a Valentine card and small gift on our plate for breakfast.  It's one of those sweet memories that sticks with me and always brings a smile to my face. 

As I moved away and was on my own, when my Valentine came in the mail from Mom, I always saved it for Valentine morning breakfast.  Still do. 

This morning I got Kale in on the tradition.  He had Valentine's of his own to open and enjoy.

Think this tradition is here to stay.

Our Sweet Valentine

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.  In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like Him." 1 John 4:16-17
