Small Town Life

10:42 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?

  1. This is a great post Sarah :) I really enjoy the idea of small town life, knowing people and loving them. It's a beautiful picture!

    To show people I care I will often give them cards or send them a letter. I like to verbally affirm them and tell them how special they are. I enjoy spending time with people and really listening to what's going on in their lives. :D

  2. Hi Sarah! That is wonderful! How fun! We know our library people pretty well. We always get tons of books out, especially during the school year. They are always happy to see us and clear off a shelf in the back! =:) That is a good reminder! We really need to reach out to others in our community more. =:D

    Blessings and Hugs!

  3. HI again Sarah! I was wondering, could I put a thing up on my blog sidebar, like you have, for the Young Christian Women Blogger's group and then link to your blog so they can ask to be invited or something like that? I think that would really get others on there! =:)

    Also, I was thinking, you might want to move your etsy thing up a bit so people can see it better, I didn't know it was there! This is just as a suggestion of course =;)

    Thanks!
    Blessings!
