We had a great gathering Sunday evening. I mean excellent!
It was our first gathering at the Penninsular Place Rec Room. A neat, hip location with a bunch of round tables for four, a pool table, a couch, and some extra chairs.
One of the features of our Sunday evening gatherings, is our time of breaking bread together. Folks bring in a meal, or portions of a meal, and we have a bit of a “pot luck” meal. This past week was the first Sunday we also brought take home containers.
Each time we had gathered before, Bianca and I were bringing home a fair amount of left-overs. Nothing wrong with this. Left-overs in our house typically make great lunches throughout the week.
Not this week! With the take home containers, we were able to send some college students back to their apartments and dorms with homemade meals.
To make the evening even more perfect, one student expressed just how much she enjoyed one of the meals that was brought! It turns out that when she goes home to see her folks, she nearly always asks her mom to make this one particular meal.
And we had brought it to her.
27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. 30 For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Luke 12:27-31
I love how God simply organized and orchestrated the entire evening. His ability to meet the needs, and desires, of His creation that evening was most excellent to witness. Again, pointing out why we do not need to be anxious and need only wait on Him.
