The Brother and my man

We have been privileged to provide hospitality to a Franciscan brother this week.  My husband (who is more than Mr. Mom) was delighted to have company for a few days. It made me recall what our Mennonite friends taught us years ago--people "Mennonite" their way across the country.  Franciscans do the same. 

How wonderful to exercise this gift of Christian hospitality.  Our lives are enriched--and the brother given a place of rest and comfort to continue his journey.  We shall look for him again . . . and others.

Deep conversation with my man--set the notion in place that we might one day soon Franciscan our way in England!  I am already planning. :)

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.  Hebrews 13:2
