Oh, people.

As I prepare to leave for Nepal and India in a few short days, I’ve been freshly astonished by the love of friends and family. I mean, really. My heart can’t stop aching with bittersweet joy and tenderness, affection and vulnerability.

I love people. 

And I’d like to learn to do so more extravagantly – tossing selfishness to the wind and gladly offering myself to others with clear eyes, pure intentions, and a heart trembling, breaking, and bursting with the love of the Father.

That is what I want to do. That is who I want to be.

In the meantime, my jaw drops and I’m humbled to my knees with gratitude at the love of those around me. 

I am in the company of some extraordinarily gracious and selfless people.

God knows I have so much to learn from them.

I have been blessed with life-infusing relationships.

And I dearly hope to become a woman who can offer the same to others.

Further up and further in, friends…
