Make Time For Company Dear Ones!
Why is it important to have company in your home?
Firstly, it is biblical...
We want to please the Lord, so He has asked us to open your hearts,
And your HOME to bless and encourage others!
When you realize how refreshment comes you will understand why
We should make it a priority to have company;
The scripture tells us this:
"Those that refresh others will themselves be refreshed"
Making a casserole and a salad is very easy!
Bread and butter are a staple!
Making it easy and simple or as elegant as you want as it is up to you.
Learn a couple of yummy, and filling casserole recipes.
This is a must for a homemaker...
Ask some of your Lady friends for a copy,
Of their tried and true casserole recipes!
Pull out the table and decorate is for any season we might be in;
Find some pretty dishes and tableware that is pleasing to the eye;
Or when you see pretty paper plates and napkins,
Buy them for a future get together.
I have always enjoyed the motivation that comes with opening my home.
I enjoy inviting friends and our Church family to come for dinner.
So once you have set a date;
You start planning what you will serve;
And I always get to cleaning the home and getting things tidy and in order.
I get inspired and it is a blessing to make an atmosphere filled with love.
And find it helps knowing
That I am serving others as Jesus served us!
Jesus was the greatest servant of all!
Take pleasure in it!
Do not stress over it, learn to be a good hostess;
As if you are relaxed it will show by you enjoying the company and the meal!
And if dinner really is to much for you or not in your budget,
Have them over for snacks and dessert
I would think trying to invite company at least every other month,
Find a good time span that works for your family.
The more you do this the more you will enjoy it!
And I have always seen the company leave refreshed and blessed!
And if they ask can I bring something tell them yes!
A generous person will prosper;
Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed
The NKJ version say's watered instead of refreshed;
I love the word picture so much,
Because we all need to be watered and refreshed...
