A Word on Dinners
They wait…not long mind you, just a few moments…then if I don’t say it, someone around the table will sigh and comment, “Just say it, mom!” And so I do.

“Oh, this is such a colorful dinner!” I say it with great gusto and thankfulness, totally unable to contain my delight.

I’m so thankful that I only had to make one of the appealing dishes set before my family. I was blessed with daughters, a daughter-in-law, and granddaughters who don’t seem to mind cooking. When all the contributions are brought together, the table is beautifully arrayed with colorful foods.

I always seem to notice when meals are particularly colorful. Have you noticed that, too? Colorful meals are so much more appealing than plain colorless foods brought together to make a meal. Those plain foods might taste just as scrumptious, but somehow colorfulness seems to enhance the enjoyment of the meal.

Fortunately, when my family gets together to eat, there are usually plenty of interestingly colorful foods that are quite delicious. The display simply begs a comment. So I oblige.

God was so good and wise to create color. It seems to bring life to everything, even the food we eat. I think that fact is deserving of a word of praise, don’t you?

"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in him." (Psalm 34:8)

  1. Love this mom! It really isn't a family dinner unless you declare it colorful!
