I was inspired to put a culinary twist on the word SerenDIPity and make it a celebration ~ a gathering of family and friends where all DIPS were served. Savory and sweet dips – appetizers and desserts – would be the posh nosh for the celebration. -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity #SerendipityDips http://goo.gl/tHT7Mz
The art and heart of entertaining seem to be waning in this world of social media, where, if we are not disciplined and resolved, most of our social interaction can be in front of a computer or smart phone screen instead of face-to-face. -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity #SerendipityDips http://goo.gl/tHT7Mz
Opening our homes in hospitality usually involves stepping out of our comfort zones. Whether we are preparing a meal to bring to someone or inviting others to our home, it often involves a surrender of selfishness. But as we yield to God’s leading through being hospitable, He fills our hearts with joy and gives us the blessing of tasting and seeing that He is indeed good. “Taste and see that the Lord is good…” ~Psalm 34:8 -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity #SerendipityDips http://goo.gl/tHT7Mz
“Our busy and technology-driven lives contribute to our lack of personal fellowship one with another. Opening our homes and inviting others in for coffee, snacks, a meal or a party can easily slip of our heart’s and calendar’s radar screens. But I believe we are called and commanded to be hospitable in whatever form the Lord chooses. “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another..” ~ Hebrews 10:25” -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity
“To some our home is modest and small, to others it may be spacious and grand. Either way, to us it is just right. It is what the Lord has provided for us. And we want to open the door of our home to guests. God has made a point of its importance through scripture, so we know there will be fruit for His purposes as we swing wide open the door of our hearts and house to family, friends and even strangers.” -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity
“Thoughtfully go through your list of all of those attending your SerenDIPity. Pray for each one individually and for each couple. Ask the Lord to give you a sensitive heart toward anyone who may need some extra encouragement as they step out and accept your invitation of hospitality.” -Sharon Sloan author of SerenDIPity
