The day started with our whole family running across the street in our pjs. We saw our neighbor headed to work and we ran over to say good morning, check in. We waved and chatted with more neighbors in one day than we have in a month. All from a distance. But all so sweet.
The day was filled with neighborly kindnesses. A bouquet of daffodils. An offer of a grocery run. At night we read the story of the Good Samaritan which in our kids’ Bible is titled “The Good Neighbor.”
Jesus is called Emmanuel, which means “God is with you.” But I’ve also heard it translated “God moves into the neighborhood.” I like that. Jesus was in our neighborhood today. I hope also in yours.
Sleep well world. God holds you.
