Let me introduce you to an inspirational couple of Austinites, who turned their normal existence into an intentional adventure in the Capital City of Texas.
Our acquaintance with Johnny and DeNise Merritt goes way back.
DeNise’s sister is married to the fine man who was our pastor in Muleshoe, Texas for 7 years.
DeNise hosted a luncheon at her house for me to meet some women in Amarillo when we moved back there after living in the Home of the Mighty Mules.
We attended the same church.
Johnny was an attorney in the firm where Mike was an administrator.
But our friendship is basically a whole new thing.
We moved to Austin.
They did, too.
They considered it a big adventure.
We did, too.
They felt like newlyweds again.
So did we.
