I still have yesterday's gospel reading on my mind - the passage in which Jesus says, "The one who welcomes you, welcomes Me," and "The one who give even a cup of cold water in my name will not go unrewarded."
And so I offer the following:
I really identify with that last one. Having a guest room is what I like the most, I should say, about my little house!
If it were not for guests all houses would be graves. (Kahlil Gibran)
Visitor's footfalls are like medicine; they heal the sick. (African Proverb)
Mighty proud I am that I am able to have a spare bed for my friends. (Samuel Pepys)
