I had the joy of being able to meet up with our Japan tour group friends tonight for one last dinner altogether in Hong Kong before Tiff and I head back to Vancouver. It was different being able to see glimpses into their lives in Hong Kong, like there is something more that holds us together than merely the circumstance of being in a foreign country. We now know each other outside of our original circumstances.
I like how intentional having a meal together is. Breaking bread together holds a spirit of thanksgiving and something about food blesses the people who share it. My heart was so, so full tonight, and I cannot keep count of the times I have said, “Please come to visit Vancouver.”
