Fun Fellowship

When God's people get together...
there is grace, fellowship, laughter, good times, and love.

This past Friday, we participated in a 'Dinner for 8' fellowship program coordinated through our local church.  We were blessed to have dinner with three amazing couples from our church family.  We laughed, talked, and got to know each other a little bit better.

Joining together, whether in times of fellowship or lists of gratitude, is a blessing!

    Dinner for eight – a wonderful idea.

    And my fave your list? 296. my mom's chocolate chip cookies (My mom is in heaven – and her chocolate chip cookies were from the store – but on this Valentine’s day – to think of her – and yes the store bought cookies makes me smile – thank you)

    God Bless and Keep You and all of yours

    The idea of the Dinner for 8 sounds wonderful. What a great way to share in fellowship.
