From time to time, my wife Glenys says something to me that is sweet to hear and extremely powerful. These words arrest me and make me sit and up and listen. Ladies, if you have a man that does not pay attention, you need this sentence because you will get the undivided attention you so desperately desire. The sentence is - "Let's go for breakfast"! We do not need a reason – we simply do it! It is wonderful to slip away somewhere and have a quiet breakfast together. We try not to talk ministry and work. We talk family, us. Sometimes we do not say much of anything but sit quietly and BE. We aim for PRESENCE. We leave breakfast feeling connected and rejuvenated. The Fireside and other similar Saturday morning hot spots speak to the desire of others like us, to have a break from routine demands and not have to do one more thing to an already huge list.
