Giving Thanks For the Feast of Family

We gather for a Family Feast

There is a moment when I am carried away

Separate from the busy conversations

To revel in the fullness

I am thankful for the plenty

Of

Amen at Grace

Love

Conversations

Noise

Laughter

Requests

Exchanges

Beef

Chilli beans

In separate pots

Tortilla

Jelly

Ice-cream

Cake

Vegetarian

Gluten free everything

Inclusion

Role reversals

They wash up

I play

And I know in the midst

Is the One who Loves

The One who Knows

The One Who Treasures each individual

And the moments of Plenty

We share

  1. Hi De, I’m not a religious person in any way, but I find your words and pictures very moving. For me, the strength of your faith comes over clearly and without sentinment. Keep on doing what you’re doing. You must be making a difference.

  2. Thanks Andy I am very grateful for your comment. I pray that all I share here does not spring from what most people think of as Religion… but from a Live and Deepening Relationship with God
    Bless you
    De
