Meet My Husband, Tom

Tom is his name.
Coffee is his game.
I find his cups all over the house.
He has a "story" about his coffee.
One day he poured himself a cup of coffee.
And the story goes like this:
He heats it up, adds more, leaves it out,
heats it up, adds more, leaves it out. This is repeated several times a day.
Sometime he changes the cup. He likes it this way!
Weird, I know but you don't know Tom, like his family does.

Tom is the funniest man I know.
He makes me laugh all day long.
He can be serious but not for long.

Several years ago he went into alcohol treatment.
We, his family, had an intervention done on him.
It was one of the hardest things I have ever done.
But we all came through to the other side and are so much better for it.

Today, Tom is a different man!
We laugh, we play and we have fun.
God is first in our lives.
Everyday we start out spending time in prayer together.
He has started a blog.
He saw how much fun Kimmy (our daughter) and I were having.
It is not like any other blog I have ever read.
But his personality does come through.
If you are a daring person, stop by and read some of his thoughts.


It is weird!

  1. Yes, Daddy is truly a different man. God is amazing how He uses trials to bring us closer to Him.

  2. That is too funny. I love your story about him...through your poetry. I'll have to check his blog out -maybe later today.
    He actually reminds me of either Scott or myself with the coffee cups. so halarius.

  3. Christine,
    Thank you for sharing Tom with us today. Your comments about your loving husband brought both joy and tears to my eyes. God is so amazing to change lives! He sounds like a person I would enjoy knowing as much as I enjoy knowing you! Can't wait to check out his blog! God bless... Dee Dee

  4. Your husband's blog is great. My husband's coffee habits are about the same. He sometimes forgets he warmed up a cup in the microwave and I find it there, sometimes days later. Yep, that's my husband. Have a great day. Jude

  5. Love Tom's blog. I signed on to follow. He has a great sense of humor.

  6. Unfortunately I can totally relate to Tom's coffee habits. I most always have a hot carafe of coffee on my counter and a cup of coffee in my hand, or in the
    microwave warming or sitting on a counter somewhere. I appreciate your writing about your husband and I enjoyed reading his blog. I am going to have my husband read it. I know he will like it. It amazes me how God works. This is a special story. Thanks for sharing it.

  7. I have been back to read this post 3 times before commenting. What a strong couple you are and how wonderful to come out on the right side of such a trying time in your lives. Your strength inspires me. I am sure Tom's love for you made all the difference.

  8. Prayer and laughter. Life's best medicine. Congratulations to you both for your wisdom. I'll be off to check out Tom's blog now. Have a wonderful day!

  9. My husband has been alcohol-free for 15 years now. It's amazing what the hand of God can do, isn't it? Again congratulations on many years of marriage. Now, I'm off to check out your husbands blog. TTFN!

  10. Yea for Tom! :)...and you for sticking by him!

    As for the coffee...I'm soo guilty of this myself...I find my cups everywhere...some days old with scum over the top. yuck. ha.

  11. This is a great post! I know a few other people who do the same thing with their coffee! :) God is great and good! Thanks for sharing.... I will have to check out Tom's blog.
