Fellowship is Good
My church is fairly small and so when opportunities arise to fellowship with others, it is welcomed. A few months back some of the ladies of my church met with some ladies at another church at the local Fatz restaurant. Remember those pictures? Well, from that luncheon, it was decided that we should get together at least every quarter to celebrate the birthdays that fell in those 3 months. So today, we are traveling to the town where the other ladies live and eating dinner at some local Italian restaurant.
There are three birthdays in March so those ladies will receive a small gift bag of little items and the other ladies will contribute to pay for the meals of the "birthday girls!" The highest priced meal at this restaurant is $9.00, so it won't be too taxing on anyone. I took on the responsibility of making the gift bags, so all the ladies have been sending me small items like chapstick, small packages of peanuts, chewing gum, bookmarks, Kleenex, and such. Then I get to decide what goes in each bag. They will continue to send me things all year so that the bags don't have to have the same items in there.
I'm really looking forward to this fellowship and I'm sure that I'm not alone in this.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)
