Another night with my women. To anyone on the outside it was another ordinary night of meeting, reading God's word, sharing, crying, praying together. To me and to the group, it was another SPECIAL and HOLY night together. We are a family and we are a force. I just love these women and I love that God brings us together week after week. Honestly, if you long to work with the poor, if you long to make a difference, then just start showing up, and KEEP showing up. And then show up some more. That time, even as simple and mundane as it might seem is so blessed. It adds up. It means something because we are close now, we have a language, we come in the door ready to open up and lay down our stuff. Gosh, it's just so beautiful. These women are my heros and I love doing life with them week after week after week. God is meeting us.
