Family time

One evening about twilight our family of four and our two guests gathered around a fire in a corner of our garden to roast marshmellows.

Khalid Miller

Khalid, the great grandson, broached the idea.  He got consent from the elders, dug the pit, gathered the wood, lit the fire, nurtured it, and joined the family in the roasting process.

 

 

 

 

 

Eldon, my son-in-law and Khalid’s grandfather was the coach.  Rachel, my daughter and Khalid’s grandmother enjoys a roasted marshmellow blended with chocolate. The Old Fool thinks it called a smore. He took the pictures.

 

 

Our guests, Mike and Celia Askwith, from the UnitedKingdom enjoyed the adventure.

About Martin Lehman

I was born 91 years ago, the son of a Mennonite pastor and organic gardener in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. At age 10 I was baptized as a member of the Marion Mennonite Church. I own the “Old Fool” moniker because I want to walk the Jesus Way even though the world and much of the church takes me as a fool for doing so. In my life I have moved from being a young conservative to an elderly radical. I tell that story in My Faith Journey posted on my website.
