What’s for dinner?

My friends have created a neighborhood dinner club. We all happen to go to the same church and live in the same part of town, so logically this meant we just HAD to create a supper club! It only makes sense, it had to be done.

Tonight we met at Andrea & Sara’s house, and Sara, the best cook in town, made us the most fantastic dinner! It was great… I got to hang out with old friends, and we invited some new folks to join us who just started visiting our church. It was a great picture of what good church outreach should look like… laid back, getting to know each other around the dinner table, and enjoying a good meal together. 
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…. Every day they continued to meet together… they broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
–Acts 2:42, 46-47

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves… Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
–Romans 12:10, 12-13

Fun night

After such an intellectually draining week, tonight was the perfect reprieve. I was able to sneak in a quick nap after work, then played volleyball with a bunch of my church friends at the park! It was so nice… the weather was perfect, my friends were all in a good mood, and I even managed to get a few serves over! And the best part… I didn’t have to use my brain at all!

Both of my sisters came… and it reminded me of just how lucky I am to have such awesome sisters. When the three of us get together, we ALWAYS have fun, no matter who else is around or what we’re doing. They’re my closest friends and I’m so thankful for them. And I learned something else… my youngest sister Lindsay is a volleyball pro! She was diving and digging all over the place… she definitely doesn’t take after her big sister (me).

I’m off to bed… the Benadryl is starting to kick in, soon I’ll be in a drug-induced coma.
