People.

Happy people, sad people.

Skinny jeans people, stretch-waistband comfort fit jeans people.

Athletic people, nerdy people, soft and flabby couch potato type people.

Tattooed people, smelly people, brilliant people, way out people.

Old people, young people, baby boomer people, plain baby people.

Generous people, stingy people, couldn’t care less people, nervous Nellie people.

Dope smoking people, dopey people, educated people, high and mighty people.

Tired people, wired people, hamburger flipping people, real estate people.

Preachy people, hellish people, wild and wacky people, taxi driver people.

People with big ears, big mouths, big stories, and few true friends.

People who lie, live in fear, smile for the camera, but cringe with pain.

People in charge, who own everything, have all they want, and lack all the basics.

Swingers, climbers, campers, hunters, lovers, moochers, and glamorous people.

Insiders, outsiders, high rollers, and flat brokers. Gamblers, bakers, and goat milkers.

All kinds of people, kind natured people, meaner than mean people, and people like you.

High fliers, kite fliers, ditch diggers and plumbers. Roofers, crooners, and head bangers.

Positive people, negative people, bipolar and schizo people, and where’d I put my meds?

All the same, one of a kind, why bother, look at me, and address me as sir kind of people.

Natives, immigrants, aliens and travelers. People wearing feelings on their sleeve.

Well dressed people, hard pressed people, people who shoot people, or shoot the moon.

Coffee drinkers, wine guzzlers, foster kids, people who keep up with the Joneses.

Bus drivers, cliff divers, cave dwellers, apple pickers, finger pointers, soldiers.

Care takers, sandwich makers, baristas and castanet shakers. Rock and rollers.

Hair dressers, goal tenders, goal setters and thespians. World shakers and nose punchers.

Magazine readers, internet surfers, goofballs, metaphysics people and Sunday School teachers.

People.

A world full of people.

Separated geographically, economically, racially, by language and by gender.

Loved by One God. Gathered at one cross. Offered one hope. Jesus!

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NLT)
