Sometimes our plans don’t work out. I’m pretty bad at making plans, considering I don’t like the feeling of having a ton of things on my calendar. However , I was reminded this morning that Jesus didn’t just make plans with friends, he LIVED his life with his friends. Friends that were like family. Traveling, eating, resting and praying. The good , and the bad… clearly. We are not called to be islands , but instead communities. I agree it’s hard, and there are tons of false communities. I don’t want that. I want more. I don’t want plateaus ( thank you Angela) on my relationships with friends and family. I want to spend my time, my treasure, my talent in a way that is pleasing. A big plan, with small steps.
