Small Town Life10:42 AM
One of the things that I love about living near a small town is knowing and being known by people. We go to the grocery store and all the clerks know us and we know them. The lady from the post office calls us when a package is coming; because the she knows that she we keep our gate closed most of the time. We walk into the bank and have to say hello to all our favorite tellers. I think that the best part of that is that we get to touch other people’s lives and let God bless us through them.
How did we get to know them? We just started conversations with them, or they asked why we weren’t in school and slowly, we formed friendships. Now, when we go to town, we always are bumping into friends.
Sometimes, in our busy lives, we forget that people are the most important thing in this world (next to God of course). We are too busy shopping and getting where we need to go, to take that one moment to ask the clerk how their day is going. We need too just take a few minutes of everyday to let people know that we care.
What do you do to show people that you care?
