“Ya know I always consider it a treat and a expression of love when I am invited over to someones *house* for dinner and fellowship.
“But I count a real blessing when the invite is to a camp and that the folks fuss over me. For you can see that they had been planning it out in advance. They are giving the best they have. So even if I do not particularly like what it is they are feeding me I eat it anyway and make sure to pour out lots of compliments to the cook.
“It reminds me so much of when Mary Magdalene came before the Lord or Zaccheus or any of the others…….it is a humbling event. It is also a reminder of trust vested in me by them and the Lord as a shepherd.”
