Roxy is having a luncheon for some of the young girls she is acquainted with, to bless them with a little bit of hospitality and a few thoughts that Lord has laid on her heart for them. The Lord showed her that there is an assignment from the enemy to destroy the calling in their lives. The enemy hates that these precious, beautiful creations are to be the next generation, who will nurture their families and carry the torch of His light into the world. They will be a generation that will have an enormous impact in their time, but will need to have their eyes open to the battle that the Kingdom is entering into now. We as the older women are to teach the younger women how to fight the battle for our families and those whom we have been given to influence. We must have a "Kingdom Mentality" in this day and age more than ever to understand the spiritual aspect of all that we do. What a delightful way that Roxy has been led to establish His word.
This is the definition of Hospitality:
Hospitality definition, the friendly reception and treatment of guests or strangers.
It is an elemental part of being a Christian isn't it? It is a part of the way we show love.

- Best Known As: Mid-20th century American expert on etiquette
Name at birth: Emily Price
Emily Post was an American writer and socialite who became the nation's most famous authority on how to behave graciously in society and business. Early in her career she wrote society columns and travelogues of pre-World War I Europe. Post published her first novel in 1904 and had a bestselling non-fiction book in 1909, but it was her 1922 book, Etiquette: The Blue Book of Social Usage (also Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home) that made her career. The success of the book led to a radio show and a syndicated newspaper column, and in 1946 she founded the Emily Post Institute for the Study of Gracious Living. By the time Post died in 1960, her book on etiquette had been revised many times and was in its 89th printing. The institute and the brand name continued after her death, directed first by Elizabeth Lindley Post, then by Peggy Grayson Post.
Many sources give Post's birth year as 1873; the Emily Post Institute site says 1872... Modern versions of Emily Post include Judith "Miss Manners" Martin and Martha Stewart.
Ten Rules of Hospitality
by Emily Post
1. "Ideal conversation must be an exchange of thought, and not, as many of those who worry most about their shortcomings believe, an eloquent exhibition of wit or oratory."
2. "Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor."
3. "The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four S's: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy and Serenity."
4. "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use."
5. "To the old saying that man built the house but woman made of it a "home" might be added the modern supplement that woman accepted cooking as a chore but man has made of it a recreation."
6. "The good guest is almost invisible, enjoying him or herself, communing with fellow guests, and, most of all, enjoying the generous hospitality of the hosts."
7. "She must not swing her arms as though they were dangling ropes; she must not switch herself this way and that; she must not shout; and she must not, while wearing her bridal veil, smoke a cigarette."
8. "Manners are made up of trivialities of deportment which can be easily learned if one does not happen to know them."
9. "The most vulgar slang is scarcely worse than the attempted elegance which those unused to good society imagine to be the evidence of cultivation."
10. "Any child can be taught to be beautifully behaved with no effort greater than quiet patience and perseverance, whereas to break bad habits once they are acquired is a Herculean task."
