Ways we make Sabbath special {GAPS}

Sabbath table setSince the first Saturday of this month, we’ve been trying to set the table in some special way for Sabbath dinner, in preparation for Sunday worship. Last night, Bethany prepared the table for our meal. The china is a family heirloom, and the chicken decor she collected from an exchange at our church a while ago (she kept it a surprise until tonight!)

Sabbath meal on chinaLast night everyone ate on china, even the little boys (age 5 and 7).

Peas are Bethany’s favorite, so she prepared Shepherd’s Pie with peas for us. Topping the pie is cilantro.

After dinner, we read about and sang a hymn from Hymns for a Kid’s Heart by Joni Eareckson Tada (with Bobbie Wolgemuth). Then put on the movie about her that we haven’t seen in a very long time. Mom sat down for a whole hour with the family and did no work!
