Sunday dinners

Sunday dinners used to be the big meal of the week.

Family and friends gathered after church to dine and talk about what happened last week and what they are expecting tomorrow and the next day. This doesn't happen much anymore.

Maybe it is because we are too busy to sit down for two hours at a time.
Maybe it is because there is a scarcity of people who can find the time to prepare a big meal before time for church (Hooray for crockpots!).

Yesterday, Hub and I ate alone. I was out of town Friday night, so Hub treated our granddaughters to barbecue ribs. We had the leftovers yesterday. Then, we had brownies from Logans, left over from my Friday night supper.

It was all very good, but I miss the big family dinners.

While we were enjoying our leftovers, there was another feast happening in the back yard.

So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or "What shall we wear?'....your Heavenly Father know that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Jesus, in Matthew 6:31-33.
