Summer 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — by jasonsuzanna @ 3:18 pm

I do not think we had looked forward to a summer season as much as this year. We were worn thin from our school terms and the family loss. The first day of summer was our 2nd wedding anniversary. We returned to our honeymoon destination, Ocracoke Island, NC, for a long weekend to celebrate the occasion. The peacefulness of that Manhattan-sized spit of sand was a balm.

Immediately upon our return, Jason repacked his bags and headed back on the road as he took a graduate course in leadership. The class visited sites associated with the Civil War in three different states with the point of understanding how leadership decisions are made in difficult circumstances, and how that would apply to church leadership.

The summer passed quickly for Suzanna as she tutored and taught in summer school. Jason used the time to finish the readings and coursework for the Leadership class. Suzanna’s mom visited us for a few days in early August. Later that month, we spent a wonderful long-weekend with good friends in Philadelphia. It was worth the trip even though we had perhaps the worst airline-flight experience of our lives. We made poor plans for an afternoon departure on a standby ticket. This resulted in a very uncomfortable night in the Atlanta airport. Did you know that they buff the floors with excessively loud machines from 1:30 to 3:30 AM? After arriving safely in Philadelphia and getting some sleep, we enjoyed a tremendously encouraging weekend with our friends.

J next to Jonathan Edward's grave

  • While in Philadelphia, we visited Princeton, NJ for an afternoon. Here Jason stops by 18th century theologian, Jonathan Edward’s grave. Later in the same cemetary, we passed by former President Grove Cleveland’s grave on two non-consecutive occassions.

  1. You two seem to have an abundant life together. Y’all take trips, actively enjoy common interests, and seek to serve others with the gifts God has given to each of you. I rejoice for you.

    God be praised!
