If you were to ask us kids where our favorite home-away-from-home is, we probably wouldn't have to even think about the answer.
Our grandma & grandpa's house!
We usually call it Grandma's House. I'm not sure why it's her house, not Grandpa's. But we've called it Grandma's House since I was a toddler.
It is a beautiful white house with navy blue shutters, surrounded by tall trees, and with a large green lawn in front & back, where the boys love to play football. There are always daffodils & tulips in the spring, roses in the summer, a beautiful magnolia tree, & crab-apple trees for the finches.
We have a big family. A really BIG family. And this family loves to have get-togethers. Can you guess where these parties take place?
Yep. Grandma's House.
There's always a big delicious meal, bunches of hugs & kisses at the door, & something sweet to go along with a football game or opening birthday presents (usually both).
But most importantly, Jesus is the center of this home. His love & generosity is exemplified everywhere, and TRUE HOSPITALITY is an almost instinctive gift as soon as you walk in the door.
Stop by sometime.
You're always welcome, and there's plenty of room-- both in this house, and in these hearts.
