The Joys of Living in Community

I love living in community. It hasn't always been that way for me, but these days, I am realizing the benefits of having people who know me love me, encourage me.

I used to prefer the solitary lifestyle. Retreat to my house, my land. Only thing.... it turned out to be a little lonely.

Now, I walk through my life and people know me and recognize me. People wave when I'm out walking the neighborhood. They share my joys and help carry my burdens. Our enthusiasm builds and the momentum carries us forward.

It is a rich, rich life that I am grateful to experience.

Thank You, God....
