  1. I love every bit of this. I have a picture near our table that says, “Come on in … There is always room at the table for you.” It’s a paraphrase of Rev. 3:20 and it’s the perfect reminder of making room for others. We have a big square table and I love when it’s full and an extra person is squeezed on the side with the bench. It’s so fun to see you with these words here today! xoxo

    • I have a picture like that too, Kristin! It’s a beautiful reminder. Would love to visit your big square table– especially to see when you have one more little face there soon, right? Anticipating with you!

      • Is it from Gracelaced? 🙂 Oh how I’d love a lingering conversation with you in person too! And, yes! One more face is due to arrive around Sept. 28. She’s going to be here soon! Ah!

  2. Cynthia, this right here is good stuff! As good as your mama’s spaghetti and my Granny’s chicken pastry. <3 Reading this brought back so many fond memories of eating around my Grandmother’s table…always with the leaf added and always an extra body that became family for a day, if they weren’t blood kin already. So much to be reminded of here, so much to embrace in day-to-day life. I’m with you, friend. Ready to make more space for others and let God in, in the process. Love this. Love you. <3

    • Meredith! Sounds like we had the same childhood. 🙂 Yes– I completely agree, it’s a day to day thing– that’s actually more what I need to work on more. It can be easy to invite in for “big” events, but to always have our door open– that’s a bit more tough. Glad we can hold the door open together, friend and so thankful for you! <3

  3. Cynthia,
    I love this idea of one more. Reminds me of the song “Room at The Cross”. “There’s Room at the cross for you…There’s room at the cross for you…Thou millions have come there’s still room for one…There’s room at the cross for you.” God is always looking for one more person to come to Heaven and we can be His guiding light. We can and should include one more in all our groups.
    Blessings 🙂
