dating around

Community takes effort.  I remember this now when it sort of feels like we are dating around - meeting new people, having them over for dinner, asking similar questions, sharing similar answers. 

And I do love it.  I love getting to know people.  I naturally wonder about their lives.  But, it does take some effort.  Getting a bit outside yourself.  Bringing yourself to take a chance. 

I am reminded of all the beautiful relationships in my life and that they all took time to get where they are now.  Some happen quite quickly while others are a slow and steady process. 

In the end, it's worth it, these relationships.  So we will continue on...and we will love it.  


  1. I love getting to know people, too! Having such a great time in Germany meeting people from all over the world serving all over the world. It sure makes the world seem like a smaller place.

    Have fun asking questions, wondering about people's lives. Love you!
