The First Supper
By now, whether he wants to or not, Aaron has decided to become a carpenter upon finishing school. Or at least that's what we say around the community. Its a good vocation - Jesus was a carpenter after all. What better way to serve, and well really our house hold? So much love can go into the work of carpentry, so much intention, so much passion, and in the end, so much communion.
After we prayed - and we pray like this a lot: "Lord we sure would like to build a picknick table," Aaron went for a walk in the woods behind our house. As he almost always does, the Lord provided in an amazing and peculiar way. Aaron happened upon a junk pile with really nice two by fours and many other things necessary for building our table. When he came back from the woods with... the wood, we weren't surprised - more I would say we were gratefully caught off guard. We have come to expect things like this but God never ceases to amaze us!
Anyways we built a table, and the next night we ate on it.
It seats twelve and that's how many people came for dinner that night...
Praise the Lord
