Weekly Verse – Family Meals

Busy schedules and a dining room still cluttered from recently painting and redecorating our youngest daughter’s room have prevented our family from eating together, all around the table, for a while.

The good news is we were able to do it twice today! We enjoyed a great time celebrating our Church’s 160th Anniversary and then came home for brunch.

There was a potluck at Church but we opted out.  I love Church potluck’s but they aren’t the safest thing when you have a kid with a peanut/tree nut allergy.

So, after Church, we headed home, did some picking up around the house, and enjoyed brunch and each other’s company while dining on cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, coffee, and juice. 

It reminded me that there’s nothing quite like a good meal around a table with family!

After brunch, we did more picking up and cleaning.  Even though we were all stuffed I know each of us was looking forward to supper… lasagna and garlic bread!  It’s a favorite meal in our house.

It was great… and once again, so was the conversation!

Two wonderful family meals and a joyful celebration at Church led to this week’s Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV).

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Weekly Verse – God’s Presence

I know several people dealing with some heavy burdens right now.  I won’t go into specifics here.  Their stories aren’t mine to tell.

What I can do is use my online space to offer up some encouragement and prayers for my friends… and anyone that’s hurting.   For everyone, I share this week’s Bible verse, Psalm 46:1.

My hope is that it is a reminder of God’s presence and a source of comfort for anyone that needs it.

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble (NIV)

God is our refuge and strength [mighty & impenetrable],
A very present and well-proved help in trouble. (AMP)

God is a safe place to hide,
    ready to help when we need him. (MSG)

God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present help in trouble. (NRSV)
