Doesn’t this look amazing? This is a new dish we tried at the new outdoor dining area called The Yard next to AT&T Park. The dish is called Lamb Poutine. A bit of a twist on the traditional Canadian dish. And it WAS amazing. Glad the Hubster and I shared it! The culinary talent was shared with us and was a way of demonstrating Image Bearing.
This is an amazing mural on the side of a store in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. It was a fun discovery that simply shows forth for Christ.
Yesterday I drove south from the Bay Area and saw this along the way. A very creative trailer; reminding me of The Wind in the Willows. A gypsy cart headed ‘no where in particular’. Creativity is a way of showing forth the image of our Creator.
How do these photos tie together?
One of my favorite things all my adult life has been looking forward to the weekend: no school, no homework, no work, different routine, sports, friend over for dinner, church, naps, etc. So I’ve thought of Friday as a FunDay for a Very.Long.Time.
So here we are! It’s Friday Funday. And I’m away from home for the weekend! I have the privilege of being away at a retreat focused on scrapbooking. Lots of laughter and snacks and wine. Now I know there are those of you who wonder how might this fit in my series on Living in Tandem. Well, I’m glad you asked!
When we have opportunity to gather in community with friends to listen, encourage, share stories and laugh we are image bearers in a way that is authentic to who we are in Christ. We can risk being vulnerable, risk being available to others, and simply enjoy one another’s company.
It’s not easy to make time to break away from the responsibilities of our lives. And yet, getting away to refresh, renew and recreate is exactly what God intends in a Sabbath rest.
So it’s the beginning of the weekend. Friday Funday. How are you going to renew this weekend?
