No special china or table settings
Just simple food I’m expecting
It’s not a special occasion or a holiday
Yet, I’m excited about this meal today
As I get to see ones for a while, I haven’t seen
And that makes this a special meal

Eating is a commonality
So a meal brings togetherness naturally
Conversations become more deep
When taking the time to talk and eat
You get to know one better
As you make memories of talk and laughter
And the feel of being near
Those you hold dear
Makes it a special meal

Lord thanks for every opportunity
To sit down to share and eat
With those special to me
Not only the hunger it does fulfill
But positive emotions I feel
Makes it a special meal

Scripture reference Acts: 2:46-47
Background

A simple meal meant to just fulfill hunger can be transformed into a joyous filled occasion when it is shared with someone special. Acts 2:46-47 talks about how the church people experienced joy and togetherness from gathering at each other homes to fellowship over a meal. Sharing a meal creates a way to bond because even if there is nothing to talk about, one can talk about how they like the food. It is also a way to get to know someone, or a way to reunite with someone you have not seen in a while. Thank you Lord for every meal that is transformed from simple to special.
