the.tableThe table.

It’s more than serving up food.  

It’s nourishing souls.

When we gather at the table and break bread, we are performing a sacred act that meets the needs of both the body and the heart.

The table is opportunity – for connection, for love, for acceptance.

In our home, the breakfast meal is often one of rush.  If I was a morning person, I’d probably do something about it, but I’m not.  I’m a hopeless night owl. Despite that, I do recognize that breakfast is a unique space.  It is the quiet before the busy, a chance to begin anew, and sets the tone for the entire day.

Even for those of us who aren’t quite awake, nurturing a few simple habits go a long way in beginning the day well.

Think through your breakfast routine and answer these three questions:

1. Are you making time for renewal, both for yourself and your kids?  For me, this comes in the form of a devotional and reading from the Bible while the kids eat.  We read it out loud.

2. Are you connecting with your people and sending them off with life-giving words?  Speaking life into the souls around us is a beautiful routine to practice first thing in the morning.

3. Are you and your children allowing time for a nutritious breakfast?  This one is sometimes tough for me.  Breakfast is important, though, and sending everyone off with a hearty meal sets them up well nutritionally for the entire day.

Here are a few of my go-to breakfast meals:

Double Ham Slam Egg McMuffins

Berry Protein Breakfast Smoothies

Cherry Scones

Cherry Almond Granola

Day #5 Dare:  

Re-think your morning routine around the breakfast table.  

How can you make it more meaningful?
