It’s in the ordinary moments that I find myself captivated by the community that God has built around me. The moments that require no special outfits, no tickets, no airfare or luggage. It’s the small moments that touch my heart and bring me to my knees in thanks.
Playing in the leaves on a beautiful fall morning.
An email from a friend with an encouraging word.
A late night conversation about cupcakes and how crazy this online community building life can become.
Small and insignificant? Not at all.
There is something so beautifully normal about the little moments that occur naturally, without planning or force or to-do-list apps. It’s in these moments that I feel most myself, that I walk more confidently into community or onto the next task God has for me because I feel like THIS is where I’m myself. Ordinary but not small. Sitting low on the ground to capture the moments, at the foot of the cross to receive what God has for me.
Speaking of community (and this one, yes, has taken a bit of planning), if you’re going to Allume and happen to be an (in)courager (mentor, leader, member, or interested in learning more about our community groups) you can sign up to attend our meet-up here: https://incouragers.eventbrite.com/
If you’re a Five Minute Friday gal (veteran, newbie, or have no idea what this is but you’ll be there and want to try this whole “writing unedited for five minutes” thing), you can sign up to join that meet-up here: https://fiveminutefriday.eventbrite.com/
