What a great idea. So many lovely kitchens languish because people don't cook. Why waste the space by squirreling yourself away in a back bedroom when you could bring your work and art to the gathering place? It's somewhere to cook up a storm of creativity and plop down your chopsticks and Chinese takeout container, too.
What next? God has made us endlessly inventive, like himself. I like it.
What room would you turn into your playroom, if you could?
*Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5 NIV
*Here is another illustration Jesus used: 'The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.
*Jesus also used this illustration: 'The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.' Matthew 13:31–33 NLT
*Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2 NIV
