Last night our house was decorated with PEOPLE!
 "Peopled", I call it.
After snacks and cake,
we played games...
Canadian Salad,
Uno and 
Left, Right, Center
were the games of choice.
 We laugh a lot,
listen to each other
and pray together.
At our church, we call our small groups "Home Connections".  
We try to get together every other week, but were slow to start up again after the holidays. 
Better late than never! 
I personally am very thankful for the relationships I enjoy with these wonderful people.
Does anyone remember Bill and Gloria Gaither's song, "Getting Used to the Family of God"?
It's what's going through my head this "morning after"...
Going together, enjoying the trip, 
Getting used to the fam’ly I’ll spend eternity with.
Learning to love you, how easy it is, 
Getting used to the fam’ly of God.


  1. What a loving idea. It looks like you all had a great time, and the cake is sweet with celebrations for several written out.

  2. It's such blessing having fellowship...looks like you all were enjoying yourself...and providing a beautiful warm cozy home for others to visit.

  3. "Decorated with people"...I LOVE that! :) I may have to borrow that expression from time to time, it's fantastic!

  4. Wonderful! As a matter of fact, our Home Group of 15 gathered at our house for Sunday dinner (we do that the first Sunday of every month) yesterday. It's always a time of high-spirited fellowship; and serves to fortify the bonds we've made on study nights & other gatherings.

    I'd fit right in at your house; and you in mine!


  5. Love this! Peopled. Oh the rich drink of fellowship! Yes, my spirit says.


  6. That is awesome...totally awesome and what a treasure and what a blessing!!!

  7. I wish my new church did this...maybe I can get something started this year...

  8. Looks like fun! We need to do something like this too!
