Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

Paul and I were on a walk this week, and talking about this type of rubber-meets-the-road, real-kind of hospitality. The kind where people come together, not agenda driven, but real-life driven.

In a sense, opening our homes is for other people. As a host, it’s not really about us.

We’re just the tools to make it happen, to connect people, and to allow miracles to occur.

We’ve seen miracles happen around our table. One story was so odd at the time, it later proved true , and then something we laughed about.

My husband is great about asking questions of guests, to get everyone involved in the conversation.

At one dinner party, he asked 2 questions that everyone had to answer, and little did he know these 2 questions were “off limits” for our friend’s date, whom she had brought to the party.

Simple questions like “what’s your middle name and how did you get it,” and “what is your college degree?”

I’m not kidding. He was livid that we asked these 2 questions, when my husband had NO clue they would be a sensitive subject for him. NO clue.

Miracles happen around food and drink

Later we realized once again, miracles happen around food and drink.

We ferreted out that this man would not be the right person for our friend to date, and our friend saw that as well.

It’s a simple story. But profound.

A lot can happen around the table. It’s getting to know people, where people show their true colors sometimes, where hearts are softened, and even where anger can explode.

Table experiences can bring wisdom and insight. Yes, almost 26 years worth of stories that my hubby and I could tell.

“Our honesty is our invitation, not to make an exhibition of our failures, our messy houses, or our messy minds, our broken places, or our soiled linens. It is instead a place to simply say, I will open my door to you and not pretend. I will swing it wide with the full glow of daylight and be not ashamed, because Christ brings the table to our homes and to our hearts. He is not only our sustenance, He is our feast. I will invite you in and offer you a seat and yes, maybe you will have to wipe away the crumbs first, but you will be welcome here all your days, just as you are. And sometimes, when honesty is our invitation, we find that those silent ones, those ones among us we never even knew were hurting, they come and knock at our door.” -Alia Joy

  1. I love this idea of simple ice cream sandwiches. I need to get to TJ’s more…ours is on the opposite side of town that I usually shop at and since I’m usually trying to just get there and back (when I do drive to town to shop) I never make it over there…lol.

  2. Smiling over the taboo questions – sounds like your friend dodged a bullet! :)  Dessert looks amazing!
