My sister is amazing at creating a beautiful Christmas table setting. She matches the glasses and the cutlery, the tablecloth and the napkins. It’s an incredible gift and it makes the whole house look more festive.
One thing she prides herself in is her nametags. Every person is assigned a certain seat and she will create a name place for every guest.
The tag itself is beautifully decorated and when she adds her flourishing handwriting it is truly complete.
When a guest comes to our Christmas table they not only feel welcomed, but really treasured to know we have prepared for their presence.
That is how God treats each one of His children. He knows them and loves them and prepares the best place for them.
While our Christmas table hits its capacity at 20 people, God’s table has endless seats and there is always room for one more.
