Day 28 - In His Word - EAT {FMF}

Today is Day 28 of the "write31days" challenge; and I am linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday group for this year's "free writes".

Check out all of my posts in the "In His Word" 31 Days series here.

The word for today is Eat ...

No matter what the occasion may be, it is certain there will be food!

We will eat!

Whenever we gather for a birthday or holiday celebration, or even for no particular reason...

We will eat!

Weekly we meet on Wednesday evenings for Bible Study, choir rehearsal, youth events, even yoga classes; and before all of these events begin ...

We will eat!

Each Sunday when we gather together to worship our Lord and Savior, we also gather around the "Table of Remembrance" to share in a Holy Meal ... 

Once again, we will eat!

"While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.'  Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins..."  (Matt. 26:26-28)

Each time we gather about a table laden with food, we are nourished.

The meals we share around our tables feed and nourish us for the work we must do.

The meals we share around the Communion Table feed and nourish us for God's work that we must do.

May we eat from the Table of Remembrance and be fed and nourished.


  1. Oh Barbara! How fabulous! I saw a chef this morning who has a cookbook, and said her greatest memory is how her family ate every meal together AT THE TABLE!!!!!!!! A lost art.

    1. Yes, growing up we did; and with my kids...now, with my "kids" having kids of their own, they also do this! And, our holiday gatherings, they are full and fun and family plus...because there is usually other "extended" family!
