Around the Supper Table


We gather around our supper table daily to share with family. Not only do we enjoy the hugs and laughter, but it gives us an opportunity to share our journey with each other so that we can strengthen and encourage one another.

We have created this blog in hopes that our struggles, and sometimes revelations, can help you. We know that life can be difficult, but it is only through Him that we “live, and move, and have our being . . .” as stated in Acts 17:28. He hasn’t taken our struggle from us, but He has given us purpose in our struggles that we may help each other. We appreciate feedback and prayer requests.

In Matthew 11:28-30 it reminds us to, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Around the Supper Table #142 – Bye-Bye Bertha: What God Says is True

Around the first grade, my kids began quote to me what others were saying. It was often with the intent to get me to change my mind, and it didn’t tend to work. However, the residual opinions of others have..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #141 – Jesus and the Resurrection

For three and a half years, Jesus had walked with His disciples.  They had experienced the miracles, the storms on Galilee, and threats of death.  I am sure they had grown to love the man Jesus.  Some understood His purpose..... Read More
