Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

I'll tell you the truth, I know that we were created to be in a relationship with Christ/God the Father and with others, but it doesn't take much for me to be by myself.  I could give you a million reasons why I just go off to do life on my own.  And I'm lucky because I don't have to.

Last night was Phyllis's Wyandotte Alumni concert.  Friday nights are my life group/bible study night.  I only committed to going every other week because last time I got stressed about it and just scrapped the whole thing altogether.  I was invited to join a life group/bible study by some people that I knew but wasn't super close with, but I really liked them, so me being me, I said I'll do it but if I'm late don't stress me out, and I can only come twice a month... and its funny because I always want to go EVERY week however my crazy schedule gets me there when I can. And I love it because I feel no pressure, which for me is huge because I feel like I have pressure from every angle.  Work, home, being a mom, family, church.  I know a lot of it I bring on myself, but I often feel this huge pressure to be everybody's something...  So I missed last week (ninth grade sleepover) and I was going to miss this week.

And I must tell you the truth, when I first started, I was totally intimidated by the fact that almost everyone had already been in a life group with each other already.  They knew each other, already loved each other, and even though they NEVER made me feel that I was the 'new person' I was intimidated (those voices in our heads... sheesh!). 

Last night while sitting in the auditorium, I got a text, and they were all coming to Phyllis's concert, it might not seem like a big deal to you, but it was a big deal to me (and it was a big deal to Phyllis too!)! Then after we went bowling (I SUCK at bowling, but I like to do it) and it was so fun!

It seems crazy that these people who just kind of came into my life have turned out to mean so much to me, it seems funny that now, I can't imagine life without them...

Our Life Group is amazing, there's no one else I can picture "doing life" with besides them!
