“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer”
Now, before you start thinking I have gold apples on this tablescape, let me explain. Perhaps you have noticed that I include the same Bible verse every Tuesday, usually near the end or at the bottom,
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
I hope it hasn’t become mundane and something scanned over…because as we take a look at the verse, it has such a rich, deep meaning.
Imagine a lovely filigree silver bowl containing gorgeous golden apples! Wouldn’t that be absolutely stunning? And more than likely, nothing else would be needed for the table to grab your attention. A word of reproof or counsel, rightly spoken, is as beautiful as the imagery portrayed in this verse! May we think about the words spoken to those we love best and to those we come in contact with! Every single word we speak affects the hearer in some way…they either build up or they tear down. It is my prayer that the words of my mouth give grace. May they be seasoned with salt, so that the world would see the beauty of God…both in my words and in my everyday living.
It was so nice to see the sun shining through the windows on Saturday morning!
I decided, once again, to use a scarf as a table runner (remember, think outside the box). Its vibrant color worked well with the blue/white!
Granny Smith apples fill a blue/white bowl as the centerpiece. I added a couple of mis-matched vases (without flowers) and placed them on “blue willow” dinner plates along with silver candle stands to complete the center!
I chose white dinner plates rather than using blue willow. I just love to mix it up!
