Alison Krauss is a part of our home.
Well, she doesn’t actually live with our family, but her music permeates our 4 walls.
I don’t know who doesn’t respond to this beautiful, thought-provoking song, A Living Prayer. We were blessed to be able to hear Alison LIVE a few years ago, and she ended the concert with this beautiful prayer.
Take a minute and listen to the lyrics ...
In Your Love I find release
A haven from my unbelief
Take my life and let it be
A living prayer …
I have found that people respond to hospitality in our home, not necessarily to me or my family.
And through this response I’m reminded of Who it’s all about.
Keeping this focus, staying on track as to what the mission of hospitality is all about, it totally takes the pressure off of me as the hostess!
I realize that my house doesn’t have to be perfect to show love.
That plain or the most out-of-date is okay.
That my meals don’t have to be gourmet or elaborate.
Simple works just fine.
And with a whole lot of love.
