Today I got to climbed through our storage unity..... it has been almost three years
since I have seen some of the things in the bixes.
Tomorrow is our Mother Daughter tea at church and I was blessed to be asked to sponsor a table.
That means that you decorate the table for the theme.... this year it is---Thanks and Giving.
Ya'll I LOVE doing this type of thing.
Back during our time in Louisiana.......when I was teaching our women's Bible study...I would end each study with a meal for the women. It was a time for me to pull out all those culinary skills from the restaurant business...and pull out all the stops with the table and room decorations.
I just loved it!
But alas....we moved and all those things have been moving
from one storage to another...for almost three years.
It was such fun crawling over all the boxes...ripping off tape (sorry Keith) and finding all kinds of neat things I
had really forgotten I even had. It was like Christmas/Birthday all over again!
Some were things that had been given to me to use in my new house.....and one day
I believe they will have a home! :)
But till then..... it was so nice to pull them out and start envisioning what I could do with my table.
A friend (Tracy) had given me a demitasse set.... and Keith's Mom had given me a tiny tea set...so between the two I had plenty for the girls and women.
I went this morning to set up my table and I thought ya'll might like seeing what I came up with.
These pictures are not the best but you get the idea.
I wish you could see this close up....sitting in between the candles is the cutest little mouse. The little pillows will be giveaways for the ladies along with the little jar candles.
I can't wait till I have a chance to do this type of thing more often. I want to encourage those of you
who have things hidden away in your cabinets that you would love to use...USE THEM!
There are so many women who would love to get together for a tea or afternoon luncheon.
You don't have to make everything.....let them bring their specialty...or have a cookie exchange with Christmas coming up.
And just think how great it would be to get a chance to share your life and the LOVE of our Father.
If you don't want to do this in your home...then see if you can schedule something like this at your church.
I know a lot of churches do this type of thing.....jump in if you have not.
Tomorrow my SIL will be speaking at our tea. She will be talking about their journey through cancer with their young son......and how even in the rough times you can be deliberately thankful.
Please pray for her...she is a tad nervous.
Just a thought....this Sunday when you are attending your local church.....ask God to show you a young woman/mother who needs a hug and word of encouragement.
I promise you....she will in turn encourage your heart.
