for the place where thou standest is holy ground."

It seems as if the Wolfe house guest bedroom has been a "revolving door" as of late.  There is nothing like company... friends and family coming to share a few days of visiting.  Talk, laugh, sit under the pecan tree, share meals together, just "catch up" unhindered by time.  We have had the pleasure to entertain my friend Susan and her son Benjamin (just to love on and minister to), Steve's Parents along with Brother Ed and his wife Suzanne (a long overdue visit & blueberry pickin'), and our dear friends the Feuquays (spent cherished days before moving).  In preparation for our "honored guests" the main bathroom in our home is prepared for it's new occupants.  Sparkling clean, scentsy warmer emitting aromatic fragrance, and fresh linens await.

I don't know about you but in our "guest bathroom" hang "guest towels"!  You know, the ones that no one is allowed to use.  Well, in ours hang plush black towels that took eons to find just the perfect ones.  Also, I am sure that you are aware of the fact that when black is laundered... fuzz attracts and is almost impossible to remove.  I say all of that to say... our "guest towels" are not even used by "guests".  

It is a case of "look but don't touch"!  It is even a humorous issue between Steve and I that he takes great pleasure teasing me about.  What brought all of this to mind was, I read a funny bathroom sign yesterday which said:  "Guest towels are to be used by guests, non-guests will please dry their hands on their clothes." ... Snicker!

So ridiculous are the material things that we place value on... no one worthy of its use.  I am so thankful that when I come into the presence of our Lord... nothing good is off limits... "no good thing" does He withhold.

"For the LORD God is a sun and shield:  the LORD will give grace and glory:  no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."  
(Psalm 84:11)
