Your Kitchen Table

If your kitchen table is like ours, it’s where everyone gathers. It seems to be the place to not just sit and eat, but read the paper, look at your smart phone, do your homework, make a craft, and pray.  But it’s also the place to talk about each others day, organize schedules, make decisions, play games, laugh, have fun together… or cry, listen, and console each other.  The kitchen table is where some of the best conversion, stories, and memories are made. It’s an important part of a home.

Would it be nice to give a gift a that helps emphasizes your kitchen table, and all that happens in our lives around it? Something that encourages people to gather there, create those memories, live life together, and with God.

The large Lazy Susan is a gift item that does just that.  It reads: May our table be a place of plenty….a place to share….a place for love. The Lord surrounds His people both now and forevermore.

It’s a big 23″ and is made of mango wood. The detailing on it is makes it blend with a lighter oak or darker table too.

How would you use this lazy susan the most, for serving or for games?

A Pitcher, A Vase

The Queen Anne’s Lace Pitcher is large (3 quart) and reads: Grace & Gratitude.

The bottom of it also has a meaningful message from author Bonnie Jensen which reads:

For little things…for big things…for all things…there is room in the heart to be thankful. 

We don’t have a God who steps in and out of our lives, but One who is ever present, always faithful, and deeply loving. 

He is in every circumstance, each moment, and all of our days. 

When we choose to begin with thankfulness—no matter what we’re doing—we choose God’s path to true joy.

And that is a beautiful place to be.

Key Verse: Our God we give you thanks. I Chronicles 29:13 NIVScreen Shot 2015-04-20 at 12.34.04 PM

This item is not only a beautiful pitcher, but a beautiful vase! It is absolutely the best “go to” gift for Mothers Day, Weddings, Birthday, House Warming, or Just Because! The best way to explain it is just to show you!

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Give us this day our daily bread Matthew 6:11, did you have this in your home growing up?

My husband’s Grandparents had it on their wall one metal bread plate like this:

Just like all these items, this is a scripture that has been displayed in homes for decades. It is something we remember, and wish to duplicate, passing this tradition on not just in our homes, but by giving as a gift for a new home.

The modern version of Give Us This Day Our Daily Breadboard works great for that. It makes a great house warming gift, or wedding gift, sharing the message we grew up with onto a family member, friend, or the next generation.

How about putting it in a basket with some bread mixes, apple butter, or loaf pan to make it really fun!

I hope in 100 years someone writes a similar blog post asking, “where or on what do you remember reading this scripture growing up?” and it gets full of comments!
