We just finished with our home group meeting about an hour ago. What a blast! I love the people who we have begun to connect with in this group. They are tremendous people and they have such incredible life stories.
I think that is the thing about people that I find so amazing. They each have these unique life journeys. We spent some time sharing from a map the places where we were born and raised, our favorite vacation spots, the place we most want to live and the place God really made himself real.
I was blown away by not only the diversity of each story but also the similarities of each story. I loved just hearing a little bit more about where we have been and where we hope to go.
Listening to one another, I felt a strong connection as we shared why a certain place held significance to us. We laughed with one another as we listened and nodded agreement about certain places we would love to visit.
Our journeys are different but somehow similar. We can learn so much from each other’s stories if we care to truly listen to one another; not just the words but also the meaning behind the words. I feel rich tonight because of the people in my life.
