Blessed Fellowship

Yesterday, a woman from church invited me and others over to her house for a brunch. The occasion: a time of sharing and talking about how we might encouragement one another in beginning to walk in our true riches in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Three of us met for delicious breakfast food and joyful fellowship around the Lord. It was a feast. There were earthly good gifts: fruit, bagels, bacon, sausage, casserole, pastries, orange juice, coffee, and a decoration of hydrangea. There were also spiritual good gifts: hours of discussion about the Lord's grace, His call to righteousness, and His person. We each left with a gift from the hostess: a book of Puritan meditations, a notebook, pen, and thank you note. It was a beautiful and blessed time. Praise the Lord for His good gifts! And many thanks to our hostess and all in attendance for their love in Christ! Will this be the kind of fellowship that we have around the Lord in paradise? :)

These were the notes that I took in my new notebook Collapse )
