Cratchit Family: Contentment and Simplicity

You should put a blog post in Just-a-grillin’ talking about simple food, like hot dogs and baked beans.



Simple cooking, like a table top charcoal grill, and just spending time around mealtime.



I’m thinking of a quote from A Christmas Carol about

the Cratchits gathered together at Christmas time.  The scene was when they were sharing their Christmas meal.  The author, Dickens, noted that they didn’t have much and had many family struggles (remember sickly Tiny Tim?), but…..

they were happy, grateful, pleased with one another and contented with the time….

The wonders of God’s world my sweet wife are better shared with you.


Like the garden snail we found while watering flowers.  The laughter between us when you almost stepped on him. Raising our children to appreciate small things like summer watermelons.


I awoke one morning to find the sun shining on your wedding picture.  God’s radiance in our home.  I love you my bride.  I am content.



Your forever husband…

 You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.  Psalm 77:14
