The host who has the most:

What will they think of my house this time ‘round?
My floors look so fab, and my drapes should astound.
If they don’t really like it, then they just have no taste.
Who am I kidding? They will have it showcased!


The host who likes to boast:

They’re so blessed to come to my house for some learning,
For I will teach them what they’ve always been yearning.
The plaques and degrees on my wall say it all.
Thank goodness for them I have answered His call.


The host who can toast and roast:

What dish can I make that is sure to impress?
My cheese toast is good, but my roast is the best.
They’ll come and they’ll feast ‘til their bellies are bursting.
No one will leave here with hungering or thirsting.


The host who serves as a guidepost:

Oh, God, here I am with the space you’ve provided,
Through You let my words and my actions be guided.
I pray each will leave with a heart that’s renewed,
Guided into deeper fellowship with You.


1 Peter 4:9, NIV
“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling."






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Great work. Keep serving. In Christ, Christian
Randy Foncree 17 Jul 2008
I love this! This sounds like something I would write, LOL. Thanks for your comments on "Back Home In Indiana." Sounds like we have some common experience. I wrote a devotion called "Home Entertainment", and I think I posted it on faithwriters. God bless and have a great weekend...Sincerely, Randy Gene

Hey Laura! Thanks for the critique. This is great work! It's very funny and wise. Thank you for helping us to remember what is most important. Feel free to do somersaults if you want!
Lauryn Abbott 16 Apr 2008

Very clever, Laura. You have a great talent and I am glad you are using it while you are young. ... Thanks for picking my article for the "Jewels" column. .. I have been so busy this week with medical appointments for Hart that I haven't been on the computer much. Sorry it has taken so long to get around to do some more reviewing and commenting....Helen

Great piece. God bless you. Amen.
Tessy Fuller 06 Apr 2008
I really liked this. It is was really well written with good form. It was very creative and covered a topic many people don't think of evaulating.
Beth LaBuff  05 Apr 2008
Wow! I'm very impressed. This is great. Your progression with each succeeding stanza is perfect.
Joanne Sher  05 Apr 2008
Wish I could write in an hour what you can "spit out" in five minutes. Super stuff, darlin'.
Tim Pickl 05 Apr 2008
This wonderful poem sheds light on our inhospitable hospitality ministry attitudes! Do you know these people? :) It also reminds me of something my Grandpa Pickl would always say to my mom, teasing her: You're the Hostest with the Mostest!
Karye Willard 05 Apr 2008
Thanks for writing this Laura. I think we can become so involved in doing things, and we forget Who we are supposedly doing them for.
Laury Hubrich  04 Apr 2008
Wow! Laura -- I LOVE THIS! I'm thinking of having it framed and putting it on my wall! Love love love it! Laury
Kristen Hester 04 Apr 2008
Oh Laura, this really speaks to me. Great, great, great. You are so clever.
Patricia Bankhead 04 Apr 2008
Amen! You nailed it! God wants us to do all things without murmuring and complaining. Col 3:17 And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
