Halfway There – Others are There
Ruth 1
 
Naomi's halfway there point is heartbreaking. Her sons have died and all hopes for a family have vanished. She no longer wants to be called Naomi and chooses the name Mara, which means bitter. She felt like she was damaged goods but we see that in that moment Ruth was there with her and that Ruth was able to be extremely helpful.
 
The uncanny friendship between Naomi and Ruth reminds us that God gives us vital community when we find ourselves halfway there. Friendships help us work through our hang ups, retrieve our life mission, and excel in the grace of celebration. Who in your life has met you “halfway there?”

    Halfway There – God is There
    Genesis 15
    Things rarely materialize as we think. We have gut-check moments and have to decide to abort or to go on. We are halfway there. If we can continue to go further, we can uncover more within us and in the faith life than we could have ever imagined.
