I started a new Bible Study: David: 90 Days with a heart like his by Beth Moore. I am very excited. I often do a lot of things, and I do them for God's Glory, but sometimes I'm tired and I'm crabby. And so I need to work on my heart. And I also have to figure out what gifts are mine, and what gifts belong to someone else, and I need to stop stealing the blessing of serving from others. Pretty excited!!
Today, my friend Melissa brought me cupcakes. Now these weren't you're everyday cupcakes, these were made with a cake mix and punkin, so they were good-for-me. Can you say "YUMMMMIIIEEEE!!!!"? Say it because they were.
For as long as I've known Melissa, I have been saying that I wanted to get to know her better. And now I really am, I joined the life group at her house, and let me tell you, that I love Youth Staff, and I love the friends I have there, but they are either A) way younger than me or B) Married, so we don't really hang out that much. It's just that I have a different schedule than most of them, and I know how much time the couples give to the ministry so I don't want to ask the females of the group to take the little time they have with their families/hubbies to hang out. To be strong, they must be together. Melissa is married, but they do a lot of stuff together with their life group and it's pretty fun when I go, and i don't feel like a 3rd, 5th, or 7th wheel. I am really liking having people to do "life" with. It was a good thing to let me guard down, and open my heart up.
