  1. Beautiful and inspiring words today, Karina. I pray to always have a seat at Christ’s Table! Bless you for sharing encouragement around the table!

  2. Karina, what a beautiful start to my day! Having the right women in our life is so important. How blessed you are! Thank you for sharing.

  3. The joy of that evening is felt through these words and gives new meaning to gathering at the table. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Sisters, definitely this hit me this morning.. we recently moved from our big house to a small 500 sq ft basement suite and the thing I have most missed is my kitchen table. Having a wee small 2 seat island is not at all inviting. Thankful God meets me wherever I am.. and likely it’s meeting others at a coffee shop now. Not exactly the same though. Be thankful for that. table‼️ and share it with others.

  5. THIS. All of this. Shared with girlfriends. Read outloud to my husband (sorry, not sorry). Read and re-read again. What a gift this is and cannot wait to see what else you’ve published so I can devour that as well!

  6. Karina,

    Such a touching story of friendship. God created us for community. The easiest way to make friends is to be one. Extend the hand of friendship. It can be daunting at times-especially for us introverts. They way I do it is to talk with people at church, Loaves & Fishes Food bank, work or wherever I am. God is with us communing & enjoying the sacred relationships we are forming.

    Blessings 🙂
