One of the wonderful things about being in community is the support you get when you’re not good yet. They are the encouragers who are not scared off by your mistakes but who are able to look beyond your imperfections to the good things God is doing in and through you.
Do you have someone like that in your life?
I am blessed to be a contributing writer at Allume, and those girls are some fierce advocates of mine. They encourage, bless, pray for me, forgive, and extend a lot of grace.
Before I was a part of the Allume community, I had Miss Williams, a college professor of mine who loved words like she loved good food. I thought it would be appropriate to tell her story for the stumblers and the storytellers today.
If you have a moment, please hop over to Allume. You’ll be glad to meet Miss Williams. Then, I’ll be back with Day 9 of my 31 Days story a bit later today. If you haven’t had a chance to read Day 8 (which I mistakenly called Day 9 yesterday because I have too much of the flu and not enough of the coffee) you can read it here.
