As we celebrated Easter Sunday recently, my family gathered around our table after the church service like we have so many times in the past. Among the delicious food served was a wealth of cherished memories.
If I close my eyes, I can picture all the Easters that have passed, and I see the ones seated around the table from my childhood. Almost all are gone now. Parents. Grandparents. Uncles and Aunts. Brothers.
When I grew and moved away from my childhood home, had a family of my own, I became the grownup hosting the holiday meals. New faces were seated around the table and passing years became filled with new memories.
Eventually, there were more vacant seats. More loved ones celebrating this blessed holiday with the One who sacrificed everything so that we can have a seat at God’s table.
No matter who is seated next to you this year, whether you are surrounded by loved ones or it’s just you, know that you are always welcomed at God’s Table thanks to His Son’s amazing sacrifice.
So, Come To His Table.
My latest book, Shielding the Amish Witness recently released in e-book. It comes out in print on April 13th.
Here’s a little about the book:
Seeking refuge in Amish country puts everyone she loves in danger.
On the run after discovering her brother-in-law was behind her husband’s murder, Faith Cooper can think of only one safe place—her Amish grandmother’s home. But when danger follows Faith to the quiet Amish community, her childhood friend Eli Shetler is her only protection. And their survival depends on outlasting a relentless killer…one who has nothing left to lose.
All the best…
