One Surprise Benefit of Having Company in your Home


While we are still on the topic of having guests in our homes, I want to tell you one of the hidden benefits that I enjoy about having company.


Besides the fun of preparation, the wonderful time around the table of eating, laughing, praying . . .



. . . it forces me to get my house clean. I really love that.

  1. Oh, Glenda...that is SOOOO true! It is those times that I wish I had a smaller house...but if I had a smaller house, my parties would have to be smaller. :-) Love your table setting.

  6. Depending on who is coming I might even get help from Hubby! Also, if my guests check my house for dust - they are acquaintances - if they love me despite the dust - they're my friends!!!
    God bless

  7. Yep, I'm having our bible study group on Friday morning and my knitting group on Friday night. I've done a small amount of cleaning everyday this week...this morning I wiped down the kitchen cabinets and now I'm washing some area rugs. It feels so good!
