story weaving.

I often times look around at people and wonder the who's, and how's, and why's. I wonder what their story is, what helped to form the way they are now, where they are going. People watching is one of my most favorite things to do. Airports. Malls. You name it.

It's such a cool thought that not only can we look around and wonder about individualistic stories but also to think of that person in a global aspect. How are we all adding to a global story, and purpose? Story weaving per se.

Sometimes the body of Christ literally blows me away. It is so beautiful how the Lord instills things into us so intricately to add to His story. One of my most dear friends, Morgan, brought such a refreshing thought up today. She was discussing how thankful she was that people knew the Lord in different ways so that we could see different characteristics of the Him through other people that we don't know as well. Adding to each other. Praise the Lord for different parts, and how He continually weaves us together.

"But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it only had one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, "I don't need you." The head can't say to the feet, "I don't need you." ... "This makes for harmony among the members, so that all members care for each other." {1 Corinthians 12:18-21; 25}
