This is Day 24 of 31 Days of Intentional Community. Thanks for reading along!
So much of my life feels scheduled. I tend to like it that way. My brain feels fuzzy and cluttered when things are all up in the air and un-planned-out.
But I also like to intentionally leave gaps in the plan-- I love it when there is room on our calendar to allow for spontaneous outings, fellowship and time with the ones we love, just like I love to leave room for flexibility on a road trip. Sometimes you just need to stop by that ice cream shop or farmstand and not worry too much about making good time.
Last-minute plans are sometimes the best-- from post-church lunch & football-viewing dates to sunset dinners at the beach with friends.
We leave room for spontaneity, fun, and true community when we leave parts of our schedule o p e n.
