It’s absolutely amazing how you can bond with others and truly fellowship even amidst a language barrier. We gather around the table—coming from different walks of life and culturally diverse backgrounds. Yet, the same blood of Jesus flows through our veins as believers in Him and unites us together in the body of Christ. Miraculous! True fellowship exists because God created relationship and is the one who holds true relationship together.
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on the earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities—all things
have been created through Him and for Him.
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
When we sit down and take time to break bread with others, we receive back a beautiful blessing. We can share a meal, a cup of coffee, a meaningful conversation, a word of encouragement, a tear, a laugh, a word—we can share life.
Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.
This month, Sommer got to spend a weekend in Tuscany relaxing on a spiritual retreat with other co-workers; the boys are missing our dogs we had to leave back in Oklahoma—Ella & Lucia, we love you; Neil took a fun trip to Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo for a day of intense hiking with a couple of his friends.
