It’s hard to believe it’s already March. Wasn’t my house just filled with Christmas decorations yesterday?
I’m learning about community. Frequently we think of community as a closed circle – a group of 8 (or any number) of people who are always there for each other and pray and lift each other up. This is such a poor example of a community. Instead, my community is open. So many of my friends don’t know each other but are still important to my spiritual well-being. I’m learning to enjoy friends from a variety of churches and organizations, and allowing myself to feel in community even if there’s just two of us. The bigger picture is always so much greater than the smaller thumbnail.
This weekend we went to Spokane for our friends’ wedding. Here are some pictures of the fun. They’re not all the same size because I resized them using percentages instead of widths. Bad idea, and now I’m too tired to fix them.
The wedding was planned very quickly – Niki assured us she was still a virgin, though.. which I thought was hilarious – but it was so much fun that it didn’t matter anyway.
Gretchen and I were dance partners and officially decided to choreograph a dance for Beth’s wedding in a few months. We’d better get to work on that 🙂
After the wedding we spent some time with our Spokane friends Aaron and Sarah. There were so many beautiful and encouraging stories and ideas passed around that I went to bed with a full heart. It was a much needed trip.
Community is awesome.
