Every Sunday evening we have a group of friends over for food, fellowship and (if we don’t talk too late) Psalm singing. It’s a refreshing way to finish out our Lord’s Day and we are grateful for the iron sharpening iron fellowship with other believers.
Last night the kids discovered that one of our visitors brought a surprise guest (it evidently had crawled into their car sometime/somewhere and hitched a ride to our home with them). (I wonder how long they’d driven around with him undiscovered?)
The children fetched the dads who, with lots of squealing (from the kids, not the dads), caught our surprise visitor
and brought him inside for an impromptu science and show and tell session. (Gotta love homeschooling.)
Honestly, I’ve NEVER heard so much noise inside our home as when the dads, kids, teens and surprise visitor entered yesterday evening (and that’s saying something).
He’s a common corn snake and looks as if he’s about to shed his skin, so the kids got a terrarium ready and he now has a temporary home in our family room.
Our life overflows with the blessings of God.
Good food, blessed fellowship with families who love us and encourage us to be more like Christ and a surprise visitor to delight the 30-ish children in our home yesterday evening.
