The space we live in… our homes’ interior, no matter how grand or humble, has the opportunity to explode with joy and overflow with grace.
The spaces we inhabit are personal and reflective but I believe they must also be welcoming. Compelling even. Compelling friends, family, neighbors, and especially guests to come in, breathe, and experience a sense of calm. We can offer an environment for others to seek shelter from a world of difficulty… To know they are invited to settle into a space of peace.
I don’t think extravagant furnishings or trappings are necessary to accomplish a sense of hospitality. In fact, Romans 12:13b in The Message says to “be inventive in hospitality”!
Let’s get as inventive with our interiors as we possibly can!
“Hospitality is about your heart – not your house.”
