Even if we haven't met before...
This afternoon, we have a rare opportunity. We are having guests we've never met before! A mom and her three girls are coming over because the mom needs to pick something up from me. I mentioned I hoped she'd be able to sit and visit for a few minutes and have a cup of tea and that I would set up a tea party for our little ladies.
As I type this, I've never met her before. I know she loves Jesus and her family and that she recently moved near me. That is about all I know. Yet - I am excited to make both she and her daughters feel welcome.
Isn't it easy to do wonderfully fun and beautiful things for those we know well and love? The creative one inside of me decided that it would be super fun to make this a pause that refreshed them. That it would be memorable and special! That they would feel welcomed!
Store bought cookies are a rarity for me - but a simplifying measure I am willing to take the day before we leave on a trip! Using what I had made this easy and quick to pull together!
Have you ever had the opportunity to host someone you've never met? I know these opportunities don't present themselves every day, but when they do - let's step out there and go the extra mile!
