A very, very busy weekend began Thursday afternoon and came to a close this evening. I put exhausted and utterly happy children to bed early, watered wilting plants and vacuumed ignored floors, and found a slice of sunshine in our yard in which to take a deep sigh. Breeze, long June-evening sun, birds, faint country music drifting from a neighbor’s yard, green and endless blue: It was a lovely end to a lovely, busy week.
The book on my chair was a Mother’s Day gift from my mother, Open Heart — Open Home. I’m a bit more than halfway through, and I’m simply loving it. If you want to be taught or challenged or reinvigorated in hospitality — sharing our very lives with one another, and watching the Lord do amazing things in that context — I highly recommend getting your hands on this book. Thanks, Mama!
