"Community is more than just fitting someone into your schedule." Brilliant right? It's about being fully present with your people. I've also learned that true community is about consistency and frequency-- it's hard to grow close when you only see each other once a semester. Today was a good community kind of day-- which was exactly what we all needed.
Thankful for Wilderness girlies who wake up early to share coffee and the bible together. "So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching." Hebrews 10:25 MSG
Thankful for Mads and Hools, two of main characters of my life. The three of us thrive on Quality Time like nobody's business. Know your love languages, know your friends' love languages and then love well.

Thankful for this circle tonight--KCraig and my HS Party People and these Junior High gal pals who gathered. This conversation, this sacred space, is more valuable than anything else. God shows up here time after time.
