Who remembers lunch at the Roberson's??
Well, today, John and I began our our own tradition of Sunday lunch! We had so much fun! It actually reminded of those lunches every Sunday at the Roberson's. We are not quite up to par with Debbie and Loy but maybe when our kids are in college...we'll see.
A little History:
In college we would go over to the Roberson's every Sunday after church. Debbie always had something delicious cooked up, it was always perfect and her and Loy were always so warm and welcoming! Great friendships and lots of memories were made in that house! I miss those times!
We ended up with 17 people at our house for lunch! I am no Debbie Roberson, by ANY means and my home is not as nice or as "crowd friendly" as theirs, in fact, we don't even have enough furniture for our house yet! As I was preparing yesterday and today thoughts of incompetence ran through my head often. "But I don't have a appetizer", "Our house isn't decorated yet", "John couldn't mow the lawn this weekend", " I don't have that awesome family room with the extra fridge and ice maker like the Roberson's" etc...you know, those thoughts that make you doubt what you are doing. But then had to remember that the Lord hasn't asked us to be in community and to be family only if our house is perfect or if we can make everything look put together. The bible talks about eating together and sharing things often. So I just trust and ask that the Lord use these lunches ( that we will be having monthly) for his glory, to build our community and bring some light to our neighbors! That really is my hope and prayer!
If you were here today, I hope you felt welcome and loved! We love you!
P.S. For those of you from those lunches at The Roberson's, I made Debbie's famous Chicken Spaghetti- delicious!
Thanks Debbie, for EVERYTHING!
