As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Preparing our home, preparing our hearts
to host a group of ladies for a simple dinner and games.

Getting excited!
Why don't we do this more often?

Seven ladies.  All ages.  
From 19 to a couple of 50-somethings. 

Laughing...lots of laughing!

Talking...lots of talking!
Kids, homeschooling, recipes.
Downton Abbey, Survivor, The Price is Right.
Country music, '80's music, Donny Osmond.
Kids (uh huh), husbands, parents.

Sweet fellowship.

Blessing and blessed.


  1. You need a 64-year-old to round out that group :)

  2. Love this. Yes, why not more often I ask myself!

  3. A couple of 50-somethings...ha, that was so cute. What kind of games? What was the main course? How long did the ladies stay?

  4. If it was for lunch, you know I would not be opposed to driving down and driving back......;-). What did you make? That dessert looks yummy, did our Kati make it (Notice how she is now our Kati?). Love your table, so lovely. The sunlight was playing for your photo shoot, too. xo

  5. Oh how fun!

    You're a wonderful hostess and I am sure everyone had a delightful time!


  6. Thank you again for a wonderful evening. It was so much fun. The food was wonderful- and that desert tasted even better than it looks and it looks awesome! I keep saying I want to host one of these nights but I always get in the way of myself. Maybe soon.

  7. For some reason, your mention of Donny Osmond had me laughing again!
