We made our way to our destination drinking in the sunshine and each other’s company. There is nothing like connecting with folks whose hearts are alive with a love for God and other people to safeguard your soul from seasons of decline. Not that anything unique took place. We simply spent time together – laughing, conversing, praying, eating – simple parts of the profound gift called community.
By late afternoon, the canopy had closed its curtain again. Silver-sable splashed a slight spray – a sign of the Season’s inexorable grind. A reminder that no matter the season, blue, gray, or somewhere in between, sharing life together is a gift.
