It may seem silly, but I'm terribly excited for Amy this morning: she's getting together with a small group of women from church to talk about being involved more deeply in one another's lives and their shared walk with Jesus. That kind of intentionality and commitment is beautiful. None of us needs more programs or meetings; what we need are relationships like this, that at once knit us together and live into a story larger than ourselves. And I use the word "need" intentionally—we need it, and I thank God for when He gives us the humility to admit it and the courage to do something about it. I'm grateful for what I have, but on the deepest levels, that's an area where there's been a void for years.
Plenty to catch up on today, so I'm going to get to it.
