I started this 31-day series thinking that I would help everyone — myself included — see just how large our neighborhood is.

Turns out God kept bringing me back home.

I saw how my husband draws strength from me believing in him, not nagging him. I found I could be rigid with rules and with all the right things… and miss mercy for those I love most. I discovered that a friend needed to come to my messy home and sit on the porch and just be listened to while she talked through job options. And I thought about practical ways I can be a better neighbor to those who live near me.

I didn’t tackle world hunger or pack a shoebox full of gifts, but I feel like I learned important lessons this month — and I hope you did, too.

Thank you so much for following along.

May you be blessed and may you love your neighbor always.
