Thankful Thursday: Meals Provided

It has been six weeks since I came home from the hospital with baby boy and I cooked my first "real" supper this week. I have made a thing or two on the weekends and do prepare breakfast and lunch but our supper has been provided for us for the past five weeks and I am SO thankful for that! Time for me to rest in the afternoons and not have to worry about feeding my family.

While our church family always does provide a number of scheduled meals this time it seemed each time we went to church someone else has made a meal for us to take home and put in the freezer to use when needed (one of which I am using tonight!). Last week my friend's Mom made us an entire Thanksgiving dinner! I don't think I have ever even made a whole turkey for our family other than at Thanksgiving, so we sat around the table just looking (maybe drooling too) at this beautiful brown turkey and all the fixings so very thankful for friends who care.

I am also thankful for my parents as we eat at their house almost every Wednesday and Sunday when we go into town for church so we don't have to go back and forth. It isn't always a big spread but we enjoy it all the same and are thankful to gather around their table. Although my Mom should probably request us to contribute, she rarely does.

Our neighbors down the road who own the CSA farm we work on each summer/fall also have been amazing in cooking each of our meals for the past three weeks as needed. Seppy asked why Bernadette made food one night when she brought it up to us and she replied, "God's people need to take care of God's people". Amen! And what an amazing thing to be the recipient of! We were well taken care of and eating quite healthy too.

We are so blessed and so very thankful for God's provision!

I am feeling so much better and well rested this week. Now to get my act together and plan out a few meals so I am not left to scramble. :) I think the kids are waiting for a few favorites to get back onto the table.

Love it!
Yes, we do need to take care of each other. It warms my heart to know y'all have been cared for in this way.
