2) then i got to see two of the very dearest and significant people in my life, holl and isaac, in a new minneapolis spot that does atmosphere really well, feeling spurred on and encouraged and cared for, talking about what we love, what needs to change, what we're learning, what we're reading. leaving my time with them feeling a bit closer to Jesus. mmh. my kinda afternoon.
3) began reading dietrich bonhoeffer's the cost of discipleship this evening, like i've been meaning to do for a while, and learned the difference between cheap grace and costly grace and my mind was blown.
4) holland told me how the areas we need to grow in can be really exciting instead of discouraging (like they usually are for me), to think about how we're not there yet but can be/will be one day as we grow more & more like Jesus. that was so so encouraging to me, so thought it could be that for you too.
5) i have some pretty extraordinary people in my life and i am so utterly thankful.
