Rumi (via -witheverything)
In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few year’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting— any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, can truly say to every group of Christian friends, Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us beauties of others.

Best idea! I want to start this in my neigborhood :)
[Sustainable living] Have a veggie garden? Share with others.
How great would this be to do in a school yard? Have each of your students plant vegetables or fruit or flowers at the start of the year and do this at the end of the year. It’s a mini co-op for a school.
