Day 100 – Thankful for hospitality and fellowship

Wednesday evening one of my prayer buddies invited me and my family over to her house for dinner. We gladly accepted!

Saturday evening we went and spent a very pleasant time with her and her son!

She is an excellent cook, which I would never would have known any other way.

When we pray together at church, we see a very deep side of each other and of our faith in God. And that is a good thing!

I mentioned before that my prayer buddies are my best friends because we truly care about each other, we trust each other, and we understand each other in a very deep way.

“Those whom you can trust to take your prayer requests to the throne of God and no where else are the best of forever friends!”

But I think God wants us also to have these lighter moments together, moments of finding out each other’s history and catching up on things that did not make the prayer list.

Today I’m thankful for my friend’s hospitality, for the enjoyable time our families were able to spend together, and for good memories of smiles, laughter, and eating delicious food together!

What about you?  How often do you invite others to your home?  Or have you been the recipient of someone else’s hospitality?  How does it make you feel to be warmly welcomed in someone else’s home?  How could hospitality accomplish God’s plans?

  1. I wished I lived closer to my sisters in Christ but they are in different states. I love fellowship and especially inviting people over when possible.

    When I had a sister in Christ who lived mext door to me, I invited her over every Monday to chat and for her to do laundry with our washer and dryer. It was a blessing.

    1. That’s a good wish! Perhaps the Lord will grant it! Or perhaps He will lead you to other sisters who are closer. Since I started blogging, I have met, virtually, sisters who live within a 30 minute drive from myself. One of them goes to a church I have attended before, but I don’t think she knows who I am. I’m waiting to see how God leads on that.☺
      Yes, conversation can be so much more relaxed when we’re in a home setting and having a cup of tea (or coffee) and a bite to eat. I believe that the Lord wants us to invite people over a lot more than we really do. Biblical hospitality is not about a big show. It’s about the fellowship and the sharing.
      That’s great that you were able to share your washer and dryer and chat like that! May the Lord bless you with more sisters who live nearby! ❤
