Day 223 – Life Together


2013.10.04 - FridayMy wife and I have been a part of a small group of people for nearly ten years now.  Over that span of time, we’ve prayed together, laughed together, and cried together.  We’ve studied the Bible, poverty, holiness and relationships.  We’ve engaged in service projects and mission trips.  We’ve watched our children grow up and our marriages mature.  It truly has been a blessing.

Tonight we started working through the book, “Life Together” by Bonhoeffer.  Wow.  What a rich and wonderful book about our walk and the people who join us on the journey.

This week has been all about relationship.  It’s meant so much to share my work days with people I respect and enjoy.  It’s been such a gift to live with a woman who challenges and strengthens me.  There is no better way to end my week than by spending Friday night with a group of people who help move me to a higher place, love me despite my short-comings and lift me to the presence of God.

I am truly blessed.
