The Hitching Post
I’ll make this post short – like our spare blog-reading time during this busy season 🙂
Even having written my last post about living and loving in the moment, I’ve found myself caught up in the ‘doing’. I’ve been so busy with the task list that it’s been too easy to forget to love on the people around me.
I’ve had the honour in the last few months to offer my time and services to the first ‘Meal of Blessing’, put on by Arise Christian Church in McLaren Vale. This years’ event has been run to abundantly bless over twenty families who are facing some tough life challenges, with a three course Christmas meal, an evening of entertainment and fun, an extravagant Christmas hamper and gifts for all the children.
It was a delight to see the enjoyment on both young and older faces; families who otherwise might not have had much, if anything, this Christmas. I was blessed by being be able to style, setup and run an event, purely to pass on the gifts of joy and love inherent in the foundation of the Christmas season. Putting back the Christ into Christ-mas.
It has reminded me to be purposeful in every contact I have. May every gathering you attend this Christmas season, large or small, be a ‘meal’ of blessing.
