I am not even sure where to begin, there are so many things coming together at the moment; So many blessings revealing themselves.
We finally found a church. Right before Christmas too, it's been so great. Not only has it been comforting to know where we are going every Sunday morning, and to know that we will hear a solid Biblical message, but God has made it clear that this is the church that He wants us to be at. When we first went, I was still skeptical. The pain of waiting to find a church had taken it's toll and I was cynical. However, every single thing that we have placed before God or that I have longed for in private has revealed to us the very next Sunday. Even today, I was wondering again how we would get involved more and we were invited to lunch with a group of people from our Sunday school and the young married group—we had a great time! I love, love, LOVE our church and I cannot wait to get to know more people there and to get involved.
My college roommates also came over to visit this weekend! We had a blast catching up and recalling memories from our adventures. But the thing that hit me the most was how easy it was for us to stop and pray together after talking about fears / frustrations / difficulties that we had. I miss that!
It challenged me to try and bring this fellowship to the teachers that I work with. So many we have discussed some trouble that a student is having or a parent situation that has grown difficult. We always say something like "well, we'll have to pray about that", but why not stop right there and pray together?
