Have you noticed all the construction going on lately? Maybe this is only around the areas I have to travel, but it seems like everywhere I turn, the roads are no more, sidewalks are huge ditches, detours rain in abundance, and delays last for miles and hours.
I've been talking to God about some of these things, and I want to share with you just a portion of what flowed from my pen as I wrote. I pray it encourages you on this rainy (in So Cal) morning!
When I look at all the detours, construction workers holding up their signs telling me to slow down or stop, and all the rerouted traffic in every direction, I can only acknowledge the obvious:
When we want to see God do new and beautiful things in our lives, many things have to get torn up a little bit
*Singing* “Sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your naaaame. And they're always glad you caaame. You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same. You wanna be where everybody knows your name”
Oh, singing the theme song to Cheers today is so befitting, I’ll tell you why =)
I stopped into my favorite neighborhood Starbucks early this morning and spent the day with them. (So much work to do) It's been a while since I've been here and so I was greeted with the question, “Where you been?” by several different baristas.
They checked in with me, they knew my usual, and they showed they cared even if they really didn't. Lol.
When I ordered something different than my norm they looked at me crazy and said, “What's wrong with you, what are you going thru, this ain't normal for you."
This is after a good six months of NOT coming to this particular location. No other Starbucks has taken the time to get to know me like this one. No matter how many times I've frequented.
Here's the point...True community, it always brings you back!
We are all looking for people to relate with, to trust, to share with even if we are consciously attempting to
