The Art of Receiving

Nothing says "Welcome to our home," quite like a warm reception and gracious hosts. 

Receiving guests in your home, and seeing to their comfort does take some preparation. 

However, you don't have to be a consummate host/hostess to pull this off!  With a little thought and consideration, you can get on just fine.  Here's how :

Be Intentional
Pay attention to people.  Observe and listen to what they have to say, and over time you get to learn a lot about them.  It then becomes easier for you to take care of, and anticipate their needs, making them feel special and appreciated.



Dominique Goosby Harris of All Things O'Natural has a great post on how she does this in her home.





Be present
Don't just go through the motions, only because you feel obliged to do so!  Engage fully in the moment - give of yourself, your time and your attention to your guests thereby fostering goodwill & companionship.

Nothing is to big or too small -  whether it's a simple hug, lending an ear, providing a shoulder to cry on or just plain old hanging out!  Help spread some joy, peace and hope whenever you can, it makes a difference.
