Please go visiting with me today. Just one click and we will be there. Jennifer Dukes Lee’s blog, Getting Down With Jesus. Her post for September 4, in particular, is what I want to share; but, browse around when you get there – she won’t mind and you might be so very blessed at what you find.
Here’s an excerpt. When you have read it, click
for the rest of her post (pictures too):
September 4th, 2012
There was nothing magical about it, but everything about it was magical.
I looked out across her yard to behold the simple beauty of one long table decked out in creamy plates and silver forks and crayons and mismatched chairs. There was a place for everyone, and everyone had a place — right there on a patch of Iowa grass.

Trish had invited us to put our feet under that one long table beside the evergreen trees, to break bread and sip from glass jars under the dome of a September sky.
She’d arranged it a mere 24 hours before the event: “Okay, so here’s something random,” she emailed us. “If you don’t have any Labor Day plans Monday evening, you now have an invite–albeit a late one and one not well thought out–though sincere. ”
She called it “an exercise in spontaneity.”
I really enjoyed my blog-land visit with Jennifer this morning. I hope you will too.
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white; for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he said unto me, “Write: ‘Blessed are they that are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said unto me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said unto me, “See that thou do it not! I am thy fellow servant and one of thy brethren, who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
I am thanking ABBA today for sisters and brothers all across web-land; for those lifting up JESUS to encourage others. And I am still remembering, and asking for healings and blessings for Dori, Kerri and Pam; and yes, asking for correction and conviction and repentance all around. And there are others, many others. I trust you are praying too. Forget not the November election. Israel. Our desperate need for awakening in America to our purpose and our commission to the world. There’s a memorial service for a dear saint this evening – her family is grieving – pray for them to be comforted in CHRIST JESUS. Many, many other concerns for those in our individual circles. And so, ABBA, You are fully aware of each. We collectively and individually come with our family, friends, acquaintances, missions, dreams and visions; asking for healings and blessings and presenting ourselves as vessels of healings and blessings for Your glory and in JESUS name.
Blessings, Friends +++
