About 70 women in our church, including me, set tables for lunch, each with her own dishes and accessories. The variety of table settings was a visual feast! Some were whimsical; others were elegant; still others were sophisticated and dramatic. Mine was an ode to Babbie Mason. For years I’ve collected hands and hung various hearts on them. My table centerpiece was a selection of favorites from the collection. Several years ago I had made placemats with an appliqued hands/heart motif. I used Johnson Brothers’ Heritage White hexagonal plates and red depression glass dessert plates. Sterling flatware inherited from my mother in law graced each place setting.
A week ago I wrote about Babbie Mason’s song “Trust His Heart” in a post entitled “His hands, my hands. This weekend our church held it’s 14th annual Hope for the Heart weekend for women and Babbie Mason and her songwriter friend, Donna Douglas, were the special guests. They wowed us with their wonderful musical talent and their own testimonies. I was so happy to hear Babbie sing “Trust His Heart”.
It was delightful sharing my collection with others and also sharing with them how I have been blessed by Babbie Mason’s music for years.
