Since we won't be here on the day of his birthday later in December, we made plans to enjoy lunch together here at Cattaleya in Čeladná.
It felt like being in a "Top Chef" kitchen, seated here with a full view into what they were doing in there, which was definitely special!
Everything from the soup (pumpkin and? I'm not sure what else but know for sure it was GOOD!) to dessert was not only so tasty, but also presented beautifully!
|That was some kind of smoked chocolate mousse!|
As we lingered over coffee, we gave Mel the gift of words, a tradition we've been doing for many years now.
All three of us talked about how much he means to us, different qualities about him that stand out, how much and how often the Lord uses him in our lives and the lives of many others, and how thankful we are that we get to do life life alongside him and serve the Lord together!
Mel, if you're reading this, we want to say again, "We love you and are deeply thankful the Lord made you the way He did, and that He led you here, which means we get to share life with you! That's a joy and privilege! We wish you an incredible year ahead, full of God's richest blessings, mercies and love, and that by next year you know Him and His love even more. Thanks for being our friend!"
