My husband and I tried something new tonight, and we're hoping to start a new trend. :) We had a family from church over for dessert, and it was a wonderful time! It was casual, stress free to prepare, the kids loved it, the grown ups actually got to talk to each other, and the clean up afterward was a cinch! A new friendship has formed over brownies and ice cream in a way that it wouldn't have over an elaborate meal.
In the future, I'd love to serve chicken marsala, mashed potatoes, a side of veggies, garlic bread, and a tossed salad again. But in this season of raising small children, I'm going to have to put that on the back burner. If you also find a full course meal daunting, will you join me in practicing some *sweet* hospitality by inviting someone over for dessert?
Romans 12:13 - Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
