That’s all I’m sayin’ for now…

Warning: if you are a family member, this might be TMI! Read at your own risk and please please don’t reply! 🙂

For everyone else out there who wonders what I’m talking about, click on my blogging friend Heidi’s post from Moms, Ministry, and More. She has a blog post written about James and me today on her blog. It is also posted on a wonderful new blog called Adding Zest To Your Nest.

Let me know if you’re up for the challenge in your own marriage. And that’s all I’m sayin’ for now…at least here on Smelling Coffee. One of these days, I’m going to be a guest writer on the Zest blog. I’ll let you know.

A blessed weekend to you from one seeking to be an Engedi. 🙂

    Loved her post…

    Honestly, she needs to put all of this in a book at some point! Don't we all need to learn how to be our spouse's "oasis"? Loved your contribution to the story; you've given me something to ponder…


  2. I just found you from the Zest site as well. Great post, great idea.

  3. You crack me up! You know how much I appreciate you, your example, and your openness. Thanks again for being an inspiration!

    What a great example to other women of what a godly wife should be. I applaud you. A great reminder to me of what I need to be in the next months to come for Paul. I love you so much as we both will be traveling these roads together.

  6. Hi, Jennifer, I too found you from Zest blog.

    Though I've never heard of the book I completely believe that the choice for regular intimacy can change the course of a marriage.

    Thanks for willingly sharing your heart.

    Also, I understand job transition and not knowing what's next. My husband had 6 jobs in 4 years a few years back. We saw God….

    It's nice to meet you! I'd love for you to stop by my blog for a visit any time. I enjoy meeting new people!

  7. Jennifer what a great testament!!!

  8. Jennifer~I just visited Heidi's post and was so encouraged by this. I do believe that our husbands need a safe place to land when they come home…an oasis. We have to be there for them. Thank you for sharing openly and honestly from your heart.

  9. I just read the post on the Zest blog. Wow; that is something I did not know about you. LOL. Good for you though; a great way to build, encourage and affirm your hubby.

    BTW, I mentioned you on my thankful Thursday post yesterday. Hmm …now you're giving me new ideas!
