Since hearing the story of The Shunammite Woman in 2 Kings 4:8-17 , I wanted to be that host! Always ready with simple essentials for guest, whether they are just coming to chat or stopping for an over-nighter. Having this mindset has helped me be prepared and not frantic when just such an occasion happens. And being prepared has made me eager! Eager to have guest in my home. I enjoy having people in my home on a regular basis.
I'm at the Homemaker's Challenge today sharing with them some of my thoughts on 'preparing a place' for guests, specifically overnight guests, although there's good info for everyone including those who don't have that actual room for them.
