There was a sweet note written on a paper napkin: “Thanks for your hospitality.” A napkin was somehow appropriate because my wife is a great cook. Perhaps we should all take that up as a reminder of the literal and figurative daily bread that we might otherwise take for granted.
Our guest didn’t have a chance to say “Goodbye” because we had to leave for a meeting.
She was thankful that she had delicious meals, a comfy bed and fellowship.
That’s an exacting summary of the provision of God during our time on earth.
It makes one muse, “If my life was a thank-you note, what kind of card would I leave behind for the graces of daily bread, a bed and the relationships God provided?”
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Like a curtain call, will our final goodbye be an obvious bow to The Audience of One?
What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me?…Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Psalm 116:12 NASB, Psalm 136:1 NASB
