Have you heard of Grace Table? It’s a beautiful website that focuses on food, faith and community. I’m privileged to be sharing there this week and I hope you will check it out.
It was just a few weeks before Thanksgiving and we didn’t have a table.
Well, technically we did have table. An old one we had bought through Craig’s List that fit the small space in our old house perfectly. It was distressed cream and snuggly seated six.
But we’d moved into a blessing: a spacious house that boasted a huge dining room. We were hosting our first Thanksgiving and were expecting eight guests to add to our family of five. We didn’t have enough room around the table for everyone to have a seat.
We wanted our first official holiday hosting experience in our new home to be welcoming. I don’t think we were motivated to impress, but instead to nourish. We wanted everyone to have space, to find their place.
