So many people come into our lives.
The kind man who offered you a seat in the bus and ended up having the most interesting conversation with,
The young girl you helped in a vulnerable situation
The person you met at a volunteering experience,
The unlikely friends you made at university
The pretty girl you invited to a bible class,
The first person you met when you joined a new church.
There are so many people who walk who through our lives
Some for minutes
Some for months
Some hard to recall,
It’s important to know which ones are yours,
The ones you can know are ‘your people’.
Know who they are
While you still have them
Keep them close.
Even from a distance,
Coz life brings us people
That introduce us to songs our hearts had always longed to hear
To places our souls will remember forever,
To conversations that make us remember things long forgotten.
Some became family
Others were barely friends
And some still made a mark in their own way.
Know your people
Love them well.
