The Best Seat in the House, Words of the heart by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

“When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place.  But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests.
Luke 14:8-10

It's truly the best seat in the house, well actually the best seat outside the house.  This family swing is going on 15 years old and has been at all our homes...making them homes. Here it at the lake it has even been more special as the view overlooks the big lake as well as Golden Pond.  Morning, afternoon or evening... it is the best seat in the house. It is from here you see constantly the beauty that God has created. It is from here you mediate and find a peace that you have never known. 

Each of us has a place in our lives that offers this joy in our homes.  This is the seat we offer to guests and family when they visit. Take the time today to sit in that seat and thanks for the bounty He brings to you each day.

Words of my heart, Laurie
