Fellowship with Christians Friends

It's been a long time since we've hosted our church family at our home. It used to be something we did every October, but the past few years there have been too many conflicts and it hasn't worked out for us to have it.

Instead of waiting and trying to work it out later on, we decided to schedule the fellowship time for tonight after evening worship services. Because it's a holiday weekend, we knew there would be a lot of people out of town, but we still ended up having a good crowd. It made it great for the kids and many of the adults, since tomorrow is Labor Day and there's no school and many don't have to work.
Everyone brought finger foods and desserts (including homemade ice cream - YUM!)and enjoyed the time visiting in the coolness of the day. The teens and children enjoyed volleyball, swinging, and some even caught a few frogs!
It's nice to get together to visit and enjoy the company of fellow Christians. In the hurried lives we all live, it's a nice change of pace when we're able to slow down for a while.

If you are off tomorrow from work or if your children have the day off from school, take the time to relax and enjoy being together with friends and/or family. If you do have to work tomorrow, be thankful for your job. So many are struggling with job loss at this time - work is something to be especially grateful for.

To all of you - have a great week!
