Easter Fasts and Invites

Our community has been observing the Ethiopian Orthodox fast for two months leading up to Easter.  This particular fast is from all meat an animal products.

I sort of took advantage of this time by inviting in families in a time when I can’t serve meat because if you’ve been reading long, you are aware of my inability to handle the butcher process and subsequent food preparation.

Jon pulled out the guitar and everyone took a turn, learning where to put their fingers and how to strum.

This sweet fam lives across the pasture and bless us with their friendship and I don’t think you could find a family with better smiles anywhere on planet Earth.
