Coffee for Your Heart- Your Table

color class day 1 -1

Your Table

By Susie Teramura

Candles glowing warm,

Primroses and Pussy Willow

In a dish low,

Water goblets frosted

Beauty condensed

Dripping down lovely

White linens and lace

Napkins pastel,

Tucked into wooden rings

Shaped like rabbits

Crystal butter bowl

Pickles and black olives

On a plate of gold

Ham carved juicy, stacked

Basket of rolls,

Piping hot.

The table is set,

And there is

A place for me.

This is Easter

And the good news

It brings,

The good news

You bring.

You invite me to

The table,

To Your table,

And there’s a place

For me,

You welcome me

To come and

Eat and

To receive.

My thirst

Quenched

My hunger

Filled

My tired

Renewed

My broken

Fixed

My sick

Healed

My lost

Found

My stolen

Restored.

The table

Is full

Of goodness

Pouring out

All over me

All needs met

Because You

Gave all

To make me new

To make me clean.

And so here I sit

In beauty white,

And drink it all in,

The loveliness of

You.

The candles

Drip slow

This is Easter,

 Jesus loves me

This I know,

It’s from Your table

All blessings flow.

Luke 13:29

People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God.

Revelation 19:9

Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

  1. Susie – I am so blessed by the way you see things and that the Easter table inspired writing about the Lord’s table. — I love the Bible verses and your thoughts — thank you.

  2. Susie,
    Your Easter table sounds like my aunt’s while I was growing up! That’s the picture that appeared in my mind as I read your words and it brought back my favorite memories gathered around her table. Easter was my favorite holiday (even more than Christmas) because it was springtime, sunshine and flowers. Enjoyed these words today and the memories they brought back!

    1. Valerie- My mom sets the most beautiful tables for holiday meals- Always love the way she decorates and makes things so beautiful. 🙂 (and heavenly!) I hope you had a wonderful Easter – Always love connecting with you here! 🙂 with much love
