Invitation(s)

I love invitations!  It doesn't matter if they come through the mail, through email, or by telephone or text.  An invitation means that someone has taken the time to put together a party, food, drink, and other friends! And invitations come in all degrees of fanciness (I think I just made up a word).  We just received one for a friends Bat Mitzvah.  It was elaborate and beautiful and colorful and fancy.  I also got a text message from my neighbor inviting me to Starbucks for a coffee.  I love both invitations!

We are in the midst of planning my daughter's wedding.  Invitations are very important - do we go with classic white or ivory or do we go bold with a bright color and graphics?  Any opinions out there?

There is an invitation that has been around for centuries - a simple, one sentence invitation:

Matthew 11:28-30
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."


You have gotten this invitation - have you responded yet?

Invitations are promises of good times to come, whether by text or by cards full of fanciness (nice word btw). My personal choice for a wedding invitation would be towards a more traditional style, but if the wedding itself was going to be less so then the invitation card could reflect that.

The best invitation ever! Great!!!! I like hosting people but get hung up on the fact that my invite is not awesome enough. clearly even a text is nice.I have never seen that version what is it?

Nothing worse than extending an invitation and having it ignored. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. You can see mine at myqualityday.blogspot.com
