Friday, April 20, 2007 AD Sabbath Feasting Nancy Wilson has been blogging a series on Sabbath feasting, and her latest entry prompts me to write about my first Sabbath feast.
I've hosted dinners before, but on the night before Easter I did my first official feast. The Lord provided abundantly! We crammed nine seats around a table built for six (hooray for skinny kids and babies who don't need their own chairs yet!). The two families who came asked what they could bring, so that saved me prep time (one family brought a salad), guesswork (the other family brought wine), and a couple errands (one brought a bag of ice and the other loaned some wine glasses). I had lots of leftovers to take to another gathering on Easter Sunday, plus enough to feed me for a few days.
To top it off, my guests were a great combination of people. There was never any awkwardness or lag in conversation, and I enjoyed getting to know them all better. I also got to enjoy one of my favorite pastimes -- watching godly parents bless their children with faithful instruction. Sure it cost a few pennies, but the balance sheet was definitely in the positive! Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 4/20/2007 06:39:00 PM
