I was just sharing with a friend, the world needs more love and dinner invites! Don’t you agree?

These lovely Pineapple Mango Grilled Chicken Skewers are great to serve for a late-night summer dinner, because the meal is on the “lighter” side. With the hot nights, when we eat dinner later as it cools down, a lighter meal is perfect! You may also love this Cashew Pesto Wild Sockeye Salmon with Heirloom Tomato. :)

Summer is the perfect time to throw open your doors and invite people in!

Keep a hospitable heart

Now for entertaining: Don’t worry about all the plans that you make, because much of the time things fall through, people come late, you change your menu at the last minute, or timing throws everything off. And if you’re a rigid soul, then you feel all fidgety and upset and … you forget about love.

My advice: Keep a hospitable heart (which reminds you, it’s all about the people, not food or the timing) and love the people around your table. Put love first.

I’m been reading Bob Goff’s new book for the past month, Everybody Always. To sum it up, his book points out the call to Love. To, you know, be love. It’s all in the way that we act.

Which means we have to actually do it, not just talk about it.

SO for me in my life, my household, I have to come up with ways to practice love, to love people, to show love. It’s actually pretty easy for me, because I’m a hospitality lover!

There are ways to love anonymously, too. I recently heard of a need of a single mom at church, so I sent a Fred Meyer gift card. She has no idea who we are, and that is not the point. The point is to reach out and help and love!

Make love your plan!

“Here’s the thing: we usually don’t need all the plans we make. Sure, plans can help from time to time, but planning to love people is different than just loving people. For some people, it’s easier to make plans than to make time. If this is you, here’s how to fix it: make love your plan. There’s less to write down that way.” (Everybody Always, pg 96)

See? I love this.

If you haven’t read this book, friends, buy it. It will not only feed your soul, but will encourage you in new ways to be more intentional.

At least it did me.
