Bring a Meal and Be a Blessing

I remember well what a blessing it was after each of my babies to have meals delivered to our door every evening by dear friends from church.

But I also remember the huge pile of casserole dishes and plastic containers that I needed to return the following Sunday.

Thankfully, there were always a few who thought ahead and brought us a meal in a dish that didn’t need to be returned!

What an incredible blessing!

  • Homemade soup (chili, chicken noodle, or even vegetable) in an ice cream bucket with some fresh, homemade dinner rolls.
  • A casserole (lasagne, or chicken, or tator tot)  in an aluminum foil pan with cookies and a bag of salad.
  • Or my kids’ favorite  –  Individual meal packets: a hamburger patty or pork chop with a sliced potatoes, and carrots wrapped up in an aluminum foil packet, one for each member of the family.

I remember their creativity and kindness to this day!

That’s why I keep aluminum foil pans and ziploc bags on hand so that I can be the incredible blessing in someone else’s life.

People like the mother in our home school group taking chemo for cancer, the friend recovering from surgery, or the neighbor who just lost a loved one.

Romans 12: 13 “Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
