Tending the Fire

"When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread....Jesus said to them, 'Come and have breakfast.'...Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish."  John 21:9, 12a, 13 (NIV)

The fire was dancing in the the backyard...not on a distant shore.  It was more like a late night snack than breakfast.  The fare included s'mores and hot chocolate rather than bread and fish.  And those enjoying the warmth and sweet indulgences were women instead of men.

But one thing was the same.

Jesus was there.

He was a very present each every the moments of prayer...and in the laughter of girls who love their Jesus.

Thanks to my friend, Amy, the tender of the her firepit...and in the friendships that unite us.

Our Lord Jesus, thank You for the blessing of friendships.  Thank You that You are Emmanuel...God with us.  We love every minute of Your presence.

Oooo...I loved it too! What a blessing it is to sit and have leisurely conversation with Jesus girls.
