Daily Blog Challenge: Day 25

If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you eat?

I have been thinking about the answer to this question for days. There are so many people I would want to have dinner with and all for such different reason. 

I would love to have dinner with my grandfather, who passed away seven years ago. I miss the stories he had and the great insight I did not know to appreciate at that time. 

I would love to have dinner with King David, the author of many of my favorite scriptures. I would love to see how he processed things. I would love to meet him and hear his story of God's love. 

After speaking to a friend of mine about my predicament, not being able to choose a person, she mentioned to me the person I would definitely choose. If I could have dinner with anyone in history I would eat with Martin Luther King, Jr. I am so thankful for him and all those who have fought for equality and peace. His dream can be seen in the smiles of my daughters. He fought so that we would not need to. It was because of him and so many other people, that my husband and I can share a love that crosses the racial boundaries. At the same time as he faced prejudices, he sought God's will and showed love. He is an amazing man. I would love to sit with  him and his family. I would love to take him to a fine dining restaurant where all of us are able to eat at the same place without the hatred he had faced so many years prior. To be there to see the joy in his eyes as he sees the changes that have come from the sacrifice of so many. 

Who would you have dinner with? What would you talk about?
