Thoughts on "Time" and Tomatillo Avocado Dip

Time for guests.

Most of our friends know that we make “time” to have people into our home. We enjoy it, we feel it’s important for us, connecting with others, and showing our kids how hospitality happens.
We take it very seriously. In a way, it’s how we learn and grow, by being with kingdom-minded friends.

We want to freely enjoy the abundant gifts that we’ve been given through meals, family, and friendship, so we never want to take this for granted.

We may be selective who we invite over. I guess you’d call it “intentional hospitality,” because we don’t want to waste time. We want to have people over who are big-minded, interested in a communal life that exhibits radical hospitality and friendship, and can help us to become better people. I think many of our friends who reciprocate hospitality feel the same way.

Tomatillo Avocado Dip

Noble and good.

For most of us, our work in this world is noble and good, but only when placed in proper perspective.

I’ve decided to write more about hospitality, because it really is the mission of my blog. Yes, I love food, and there will be lots of recipes, but I want to help inspire people to get over themselves and to see what they are really missing out on.

Tomatillo Avocado Dip

A genesis rhythm.

We need to bring hospitality back and get into a genesis rhythm.

I don’t mean to sound rigid, but on the other hand, I really think we’re missing out, and I worry about the next generation being brought up not having a clue that inviting people into your home requires sacrifice! They think it’s as easy as seeing it on TV or in a magazine, and when they try it, it’s exhausting and takes money and work. So then they decide to not do it anymore.

Time is key in our lives. When we say “we don’t have time,” I think something is wrong.

Finding the right friends.

I really want to encourage you today to find a group of friends that you can eat and enjoy a meal with. It is important that you enjoy each other’s company and that you “click,” and learn from each other. It’s important to spend time with the right people. Some people may not be right (negative, bring you down, want to talk about themselves, want to only tell their own stories, boring, not going anywhere in life). Find a group of friends who bring you up!

Tomatillo Avocado Dip

Tomatillas in the garden.

Last week we picked tomatillos from our garden. It’s our first year to grow them and I had no idea they were so sticky inside that little husk. :)

I whipped up this delicious dip, served it with Trader Joe’s white tortilla chips, and we sat on the back patio with a bottle of wine, enjoying our friends, catching up on life, talking about real things.
