Friends, have you thought about hosting a spring luncheon?

Springtime is so fresh and new, your conversation could involve sharing about possibilities, dreams, hopes, opportunities, or just talking about simple beginnings.

The beautiful elements of the outdoors, our Master Artist who made all the animals, and the fresh buds coming up from the earth, all the fishes in the sea (or in the river nearby), the snowcapped mountains, the green hills, and the stars in the sky …

Spring is a time to give thanks for every single color that we appreciate in the flowers, in all things living, even the fruit we eat… (Mm-m-m, it’s strawberry season!)

Beauty invented for us to enjoy! (Oh how I love Ranunculus blooms!)

This is what I love about a springtime luncheon. Our Maker knew that women would love beauty and colors…

These gifts before us are daily finds, my Friends. We’re always looking, searching, and chasing, but so many gifts are right in front of us.

So strike up a conversation with a dear friend, do something simple for a neighbor, plan a brunch.
