Open The Door

Often times our best intentions of making beautiful spaces can drown out the opportunities for real life connection.  Whether it’s the perfect meal, most beautiful dessert, well-dressed harvest tree - they can actually keep us from the heart to heart that most often happens in the realest and simplest of ways: messy floors, last week’s flowers and leftover banana bread.  And there’s something that is undoubtedly freeing when we are readily available and willing to open up our [imperfect] space and welcome others in. You don’t have to wait until you feel “presentable.” … keeping things simple - and real - gives you freedom in your schedule and home to keep the door open wide for whomever the Lord brings your way.
