A simple piece of wood can mean the world to some.
When we meet at the table, a transformation takes place.
All of a sudden,
your family status,
your faith don’t matter.
Here we are all equal.
Human beings, ready to share a meal together.
When we meet at the table, we gather with our stories and know that people will listen. Our questions
because we trust others to hold them for us.
At the table we delight in the colorful diversity and richness creation has to offer.
the goodness of the Lord
in new flavors,
When we meet at the table, we enjoy each other’s company by doing something mundane as eating together.
Everyone does it
but far too many of us have to eat alone so often.
Being together over food nourishes our bodies,
warms our hearts
and strengthens our souls.
A simple place that has become home to so many.
Welcome people with their thoughts and stories to your table – and you might give them the world today.
Writing for Five Minute Friday today.
