Years ago I remember planning a special Christmas dinner during the holidays. It was a bust. The guys who were at my house at the time didn’t grasp the concept of sitting together to enjoy a meal with each other.
This year, I did it again. It was a great success. I paid a lady in town to prepare a fabulous meal…rice, beans, pork, salad, macaroni, and little things call ‘cones’. Yum! It was beautiful and delicious. Present for the meal were Erntz and Steephenson who live here when not away at school. Ones was also present. He practically lives here…except for sleeping. Also present at the table were Judes and Serge, good friends of ASAPH, who happened to be here at the time.
We had a joyous time together. The food was abundant. Conversation was too. And there was love in the room.
It’s a blessing when people are together. I enjoyed sitting and listening to the group of young men who are not brothers biologically, but who are brothers in another way. We are brothers in Christ.
As bellies were filled to maximum, we noticed there was food still in the pots. Three young men came by about that time. We invited them in. We shared the food with them, but we shared love also. It was a Merry Christmas.
