Showing Up

IMG_6668Sometime the Lord shows up because we do.
And often it is in the midst of the time we spend with others.

When He is given the opportunity, He will show off in our relationships when we show up.
Especially when we are:
Being present.
Building memories.
Asking questions.
Going deeper.

Precious is
Time with new friends, new family,
Time with family who have known you your whole life.
Time with friends you’ve had for years.
Time with your kids who are making their way in the world.

How do you spend your time with others?

In the words of C.S. Lewis
There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal… It is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry… everlasting splendors.”


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
