There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under Heaven.… people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labour for these are the gifts of God. Ecclesiastes 3:1&11


Last year we bought a two man canoe and took up canoeing on holiday, nothing strenuous you understand, we are nearly 60 after all, but it was definitely exciting and new. We got a whole new view on our normal holiday haunts by seeing them from the sea!  We learned the art of paddling in unison after a few altercations too!

We can get stale if we never challenge ourselves and our relationship with something new.

What new experience can you enjoy together this summer?

Prayer (as a couple)

Thank you Father for your many gifts to us.  Holidays are a chance to consciously enjoy our life together and give you thanks. Help us to celebrate and enjoy new things that will bring laughter and good memories for the coming years. Amen

Prayer (for others)

We pray for our friends _____ and _____ who are going on holiday soon. We pray that they will enjoy each other’s company and also that they will discover together a new interest that they can pursue. May it bring freshness and joy to their relationship. Amen

Final quote

Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself. Andre Breton
