Team Buddies

Are you missing wonderful opportunities of deepening your marriage and closeness as a family? When we were first married, Steve’s responsibilities were everything outside the house, to include taking the trash outside, and Teri’s were the inside of the house. We soon learned that was a bad idea.

Time spent together is a blessing because when working together with a common goal, hearts are drawn together. For many years we have often worked on projects as a family. Our current house was finished out by the family working hard together. Our adult children know how to work because of those experiences and have gained many skills. That time working together also brought hearts together.

When we built our house, the city required us to pour our drive with a sharp edge where it joined the street because the street would be repaved in time. The mini-asphalt ramp we made to join our driveway to the street lasted ten years but recently needed repair. Teri and I spent a Saturday with that goal.

After researching solutions and not having a way to get a small load of asphalt, we choose to use Aquaphalt. It took four buckets and lots and lots of energy to get it down. We will seal it next week, and then time will tell how it holds up.

“But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

It’s wonderful to see you eager and industrious in working together to gain knowledge and share with others. Love, grace and peace to you all this fine beautiful Wednesday! Psalm 146:1

  2. When I was a kid we ate dinner at my grandparents’ house most nights and my grandparents always cooked and cleaned up after together. Their teamwork set such a positive example for me, and I’m very thankful for it. Thank YOU so much for the reminder.

    1. I love seeing couples working together and picturing your grandparents cooking and cleaning up meals that included their grandchildren almost every night is very sweet! Thank you for sharing that memory.
