Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

abundant blessings...

abundant blessings

Went to yet another favorite place to eat...
this one is Amish run... Katie's Kitchen,
in the heart of Lancaster County, PA.
Every Wednesday they serve chicken potpie
(not meat pie with a crust)...
this is a Pennsylvania Dutch dish
made with noodles and is more of a stew
(we get it for lunch and then
eat something very light for dinner).
Here it is fantastic...
big chunks of tender chicken in a thicker gravy
(more stew than soup) with potatoes, celery,
and PA Dutch homemade noodles...
just the way we love it.
We get it with their excellent homemade coleslaw
and rolls with peanut butter smear
(more spreadable and I think contains marsh mellow cream).
Follow that up by splitting a piece of
their excellent homemade carrot cake
(best we ever had).
Later that same day... because of all those calories...
a trip to the gym and a workout... :)
Yes, of course, that is my mug in the photo too...
One other clarification...
we only eat half of our meal,
boxing up the rest to bring home
and have the next day... no overdoing it all at once... :)

We are so blessed...
so sing praises to the Lord, our God,
for everything He has done for us.

"Lord God and Giver of All Good Gifts,
we are grateful as we pause before this meal,
for all the blessings of life that You give to us.
Daily, we are fed with good things,
nourished by friendship and care,
feasted with forgiveness and understanding.
And so, mindful of Your continuous care,
we pause to be grateful
for the blessings of this table.
May Your presence be the “extra” taste
to this meal which we eat
in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
