Sweet Fellowship

Today our church had our annual picnic. It was a beautiful day for it. Bright sunny skies with temperatures in the 60's/70's. A typical Fall day even though Fall doesn't officially start until Tuesday. I almost debated not going to the picnic since I still haven't been feeling the greatest. My husband convinced me to at least go for the lunch part of the picnic, so I did.

I am glad that I went. It was nice to be able to fellowship with other believers by breaking bread together. Even though I didn't feel the greatest, I was blessed by the opportunity to be around others who love the Lord. In our society we have to make a point of taking time to fellowship with others. In New Testament times it seems that it was a priority for the Church. When was the last time that you made a point of getting together with other Christians?

We had our parish picnic today also! How funny is that? The date was picked Jan. 2nd so we could reserve space at a local park with a large covered eating area. Our turn out was great and the fellowship even better. I get to see 'my church' ladies on a regular basis with either bible study or home schooling events, outside of weekly Mass. I am blessed to be in a wonderful community of believers in Christ who try to imitate Him in their daily lives!

I hope you feel better soon! You sound like me and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. We must continue to find Jesus in our weaknesses and not just in the times of prosperity.

Have a blessed day!
