Can You Pass The Salt, Please?

listening to Hillsong playlist...'Shout to the Lord' is playing right now...

a church secretary named Darlene Zschech wrote one of the greatest praise and worship songs ever recorded...

I'm a church secretary too...

and I write about...

wearing plus size pants,
what weird condiment I ate out of my pantry last night,
how watching hot dog eating contests make me gag

and if I start to dwell on that for too long,
I can start to feel a little silly for writing about those things...a little embarrassed...a little, well just a little bit of all those hurtful thoughts, the ones that the enemy loves to whisper in our ears.

but...just when those thoughts start to dig in, Jesus reminds me that there is room for all of His children around His table...

Thankfully. Graciously. Welcoming.

His children are all different, with gifts and talents, abilities and skills...makes for an interesting conversation around the table, don't you think?
