"Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling."Full of prickles I am. Who would want to draw close? I send out an arms-length vibe and I prick when those closest draw in.
~ 2 Peter 4:9
I have no door know - no way in. People can get in with effort, but I don't open the door - they must struggle to find their own way.
I offer no seat - no place to sit and kick off shoes. "You can stay. . . for a bit," I wordlessly say.
Lord, get rid of my arms-length prickles that poke and frighten, show me how to open wide the door of my heart to loving relationships and offer a long stay to family and friends. This is where welcoming begins.
