We celebrated my daughter’s birthday yesterday, and as we do for all special occasions, we had a meal that far exceeded our normal simple fare. Serving a feast to my family is a way to show them my love and bring them together, and the celebration inspired my word choice for today.
But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. – Luke 14:13
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. – John 7:37
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. – I Corinthians 5:8
Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast. – Norman Vincent Peale
Well, you can go on looking forward, said Gandalf. There may be many unexpected feasts ahead of you. – J.R.R. Tolkien
Sometimes when I’m faced with an atheist, I am tempted to invite him to the greatest gourmet dinner that one could ever serve, and when we have finished eating that magnificent dinner, to ask him if he believes there’s a cook. – Ronald Reagan
He brought everything back, all the food for the feast. And he, he himself, the Grinch, carved the roast beast. – Dr. Seuss
Enjoy this day of worship, and perhaps a meal with family and friends!
