hospitali~tea...


WELCOME to Faith Hope & Cherrytea today ~  the kettle's whistling, tea flavour is of your choice from a bountiful pantry.  what are you craving?  pie, strudel, or cranberry apple crisp?  some of each?
is that a scenario you can appreciate? 

isn't that the picture of our Heavenly Father's table?  generosity of hospitality to all.  connected and disconnected, young or old, wealthy or poor, familied or orphaned, friend or stranger.  Father of all.  welcoming all.  let's join Him at His table spread with abundance and invite another to the feast...

'above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love...forgives and disregards the offenses of others.  practise hospitality to one another...be hospitable, that is, be a lover of strangers, with brotherly affection for the unknown guests, the foreigners, the poor and all others who come your way ... and in each instance do it ungrudgingly - cordially and graciously without complaining but as representing Him.'  I Peter 4.8-9 amplified

thanks for your presence today.  you are welcome and valued!

Hello...

What a lovely tea set! I really enjoyed your post, my friend. I am reminded of an old hymn called, "Come and Dine". I have sang that many a time..."Come and dine the Master calleths...come and dine. You may feast at Jesus' table anytime." I am very thankful for the table of abundance that He sets for us...it's just up to us to come, sit, and partake! Thank you for sharing the scripture with us!!!

I just wanted to come by to say hello and thank you for leaving such a sweet note for me today!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
