For years, I have wanted a dining table big enough for our entire family. Every time we would get together, I would have to set up a card table so everyone could have a seat. With our addition, we are going to have room for a bigger table. So tonight, we bought one!!
I don't have a picture to show you...I will (hopefully) post one when we move it into the house. But, I can tell you about it. It is a farmhouse table... solid wood, walnut finish, simple lines, simple chairs...and it's heavy! It has three leaves that store under the table...they call them butterfly leaves. With all the leaves in, it is 137 inches long and can seat 12! And we got it for half price! I love it! I am excited at the thought of having Christmas dinner with my "brood" around that table!
One day, I will be sitting at the Lord's banquet table. I will be surrounded by another "brood"... the family of God. It will be a very large table and there will be a seat for everyone who answered His call to come and dine!
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears My voice and opens the door,
I will come into him and will dine with him and he with Me."
