More advice to husbands...

Back in November of 2014, I gave THIS ADVICE to husbands.

Now, as a follow up—gentlemen—I invite you to imagine this...

Book a couple of nights for your wife and yourself at one of the great bed and breakfast inns in the lovely city of Chattanooga, Tennessee.  There are several to choose from, but you won't go wrong at The Chanticleer Inn.

There are many treasures to enjoy in Chattanooga... great restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, shopping areas, mountain views, hiking trails, parks, a beautiful downtown with a walking bridge, the aquarium, the art museum, etc.

And if you're there over a Lord's Day (Sunday), there are some great churches.  Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church, for one.  Do not neglect meeting together with God's People on the Day of Resurrection, no matter what city you wake up in (Hebrews 10.25).

But for a day of great adventure, the two of you can ride the excellent rental bikes down the Tennessee RiverPark.  It's a superb ride, full of wonders—the kind of wonders called into existence by the speech of God and the kind formed by the hand of man.

And, very exciting for members of DPC, there are these signs here and there along the trail, helpfully informing everyone that Presbyterians have the right of way.  Admittedly, I was flying past these signs pretty fast, but I'm pretty sure that's what they said.

"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship,
communion or company than a good marriage."
Martin Luther


  1. Do you ever wonder if anyone is reading?????

    Steve and I can recommend the Garden Walk B&B at the top of Lookout Mtn near Rock City and an amazing ride on an antique smoke puffing train north of town!!

  2. I'll have to remember that train... thank you!

    Most readers -- if they make themselves known -- do so on the church's facebook page. But I like the old school style of commenting on an actual blog page, Jean. That's the way they did it back in the good ole days.
