Birthdays and Fun with Friends
Today is my best friend's birthday. I hope she has an exceptional day.
It definitely been some crazy weeks for Steve and I. I'm waiting for life to slow down a little. I don't have any major complaints though. Life is pretty good right now. I feel really busy but I'm happy.
I have been feeling kind of lost for the past few years since switching churches. I like Gospel Center but it didn't feel the same as Granger Community. At Granger, I had friends and connections. There was a real family atmosphere, even though it was so big. Last week, I watched some old sermons and videos to reminisce. Gospel Center is much smaller, but it seems to be taking longer for me to feel connected. Steve felt connected pretty quick, but he started attending before I did. Steve and I have started attending a small group at Gospel Center and I think that has helped me feel like I belong more. I've actually been praying for opportunities to connect and I was invited to help with AWANA this year. This is my first experience with AWANA. AWANA is definitely different than Oasis. I am working with Cubbies. Cubbies are three and four year olds. They have so much energy. It's fun though. I wish there was something fun like that for kids when I was little. The kiddoes are so much fun.
Last night after work, I met some friends to watch the Ohio State game and Steve met us after he got off. The time with friends was great, but the game was a little disappointing. There is always next week, right? :o)
Tonight, Steve and I are having dinner with some other members of the church as part of the Dinners For Eight event. It should be fun and a relaxing way to end the week.
