Barbara Streisand sang “People who need people, are the luckiest people in the world….”
Living in our “community”, I really see it better now. I appreciate the fact that we can go across the street and ask for electrical assist from a card carrying electrician. My husband just bartered some painting time with him. Great!
Bible verse that rings for this new year: John 17: 13. Jesus says: “And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves.” In themselves. In ourselves, folks!!! Let us continue to seek joy in our new year.
We are in the stages of painting, moving furniture around, and donating things we don’t care to keep. (or have no room for)
Yes, we truly know and have reminders that God is with us and is blessing us. He is awesome! We also know that the many details of trying to perfect our living quarters isn’t going to be accomplished overnight.
One possible problem with that? Christmas is less than 2 weeks away. I’d like my home really nice and orderly.
We did get the Christmas tree up, amidst the clutter……
Waiting! My husband is doing the handyman stuff himself. In the middle of doing his desired projects, he’s coming upon more and more. We realized the bathroom pipes needed work. (for example)
Do you see the word “commune” in there? I never really thought about it till I started living in a community that’s a real ….Community.
It’s Christmas season and our community is in full swing.
Commune, by the way, is defined as “a group of people living together and sharing possessions and responsibilities.” We don’t actually live where we can see each other sleep. We do help each other and let each other know if there’s a free piece of furniture available. We eat together, sing together, worship together, play together and enjoy life. I really like it. I thank God for it.
