As the years have gone by, our family has grown. Like many families, it is difficult to arrange so many schedules, or for one family to host holiday festivities. This year my sister and I decided to rent a building and celebrate Thanksgiving the weekend before Thanksgiving. The idea certainly was exciting because we could invite as many family members and friends as we wanted. We just asked guests to bring a covered dish.
I invited all my family and close friends. One family member was overly concerned about not having enough food. The scenario reminded me of Jesus and fish and loaves of bread. A special friend reminded me that she had never been to a covered dish church social where there wasn’t enough food. She was so right! There was so much food left over that we sent food home with the guests and ate leftovers for a week.
When your heart is pure and you want to share with others, trust our sweet Lord God. He will take care of you.
