Can you believe I am posting twice in one week. I know it’s amazing isn’t it?
Well lately I have been feeling a little sorry for myself. I have been a little lonely here in Arkansas. I have been emailing and Facebooking (is that a word? I just made it up) with all of you in Tennessee and it has made me miss you all terribly. I have yet to make the kind of friendships here that I had there. I know there will never be friends like you all. You are irreplaceable. We have just starting to become involved at church. I never thought we would have taken so long to get established in a church. But it just goes to show you how easy it is to not go to church. We went to church but not always on a regular basis and we were church looking. We feel God has led us to Fellowship Bible Church. I am meeting people, but I still feel like an outsider.
Well on to why God is so good. I was crying out to God (literally) on Tuesday morning wanting to make connections with someone. I don’t want ya’ll to think I have no friends, just not any close friends. I want someone I can call at the last minute and go have lunch or go shopping with. So, last night I was on my way to a Women’s event at church and I got a call from a lady on my weight loss class and she wanted some of us to get together for lunch today. I was thrilled to get to see them. I haven’t seen them in awhile. I am still going to class but they have stopped because they have lost the weight they wanted to lose. Needless to say I still have more to lose (I have lost 65 lbs so when I see you guys you better notice). Then, last night when I got home from church I had an email from someone in my New Beginnings Class wanting some of us to go to lunch today. I couldn’t believe it. Two invitations in one day. I love that I have a God who cares enough for me to not only hear my cries, but to let me know that He loves me so much that He provided two lunch dates. So I am off to get ready for lunch with friends and I couldn’t be happier. I am just going to one though – the diet would not be working if I had lunch twice in one day. We scheduled lunch with the friends from church for next week.
