31 People(s): Et Cetera

Here’s the thing about life and the people in our lives – they never stop coming! Though my 31 People(s) list has come to an end, I know there are so many people I have cherished from all the seasons of life I’ve lived, so many people I have yet to meet and will love, more neighbors to be had, more coworkers to live my days with, and beyond.

To the people of my past who may not be in my present – I’m thankful for the moments I had with you, for the lessons you taught me.

To the friends of my future – I can’t wait to meet you and know your story and figure out all the ways to love you well!

To the people in traffic that I yell at – I’m sorry. I don’t know what comes over me! You really aren’t an idiot and I’m working on that.

To the strangers I pass everyday – I pray that I’ll always be interruptible and ready to meet you and see your heart.

To my neighbors, present and future – I want to know you! It’s really scary to knock on your door, but I really hope that it happens one day. I hope you can eat a meal in my house and that we can look out for each other.

I love you all! I really do. I know I toss around the word love like it doesn’t carry the power it does, but I mean it. I think we’re called to love the people in our lives, our neighbors, strangers, and even our enemies with the love that we’ve been shown – the love of Jesus.
