My favorite piece of furniture in my house is my Mema’s table. I have so many special memories of the meals that were served and the comfort I always felt when I sat there. It was a place of safety and security. She always prepared meals so effortlessly. It seems like such a simple concept, sharing a meal with the people you love; however, it’s an art form that is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Being around the table, people share more than a meal; they share memories, feelings, and the most intimate parts of their lives. Being around the table, with the ones you love, whether that be the family God blesses you with or the family you create for yourself is one of the greatest joys in life.
I sometimes take for granted a meal that is prepared. So much goes into making food taste great, hoping somehow it might convey the love that was poured in. I take pride in what I feed my family and place a high priority on sitting at the table with them. I try my best to feed them food that heals not harms while taking into consideration where it came from. All that being said, I know the memories made are equally as important. Some people make a meal great just by being there! I hope this blog inspires you to eat more REAL food and spend more time at your comfort table.
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts Acts 2:46
