I joined a women's Bible study. As I was driving home, after the first meeting, I started thinking about friendship and how much I do not like making new friends. It's not that I don't like making new friends so much as it is that I really enjoy my old ones and would rather spend time fostering those relationships than putting energy into new ones that lets face it . . . could turn out to not be as wonderful. And by "could" I mean, "How could they possibly? I have the best, most awesome friends in the world!"
Anyway, I was thinking about one gal in particular and how much I would love to be doing the study with her, to just have her sitting there next to me - knowing me and all of my flaws and understanding me unlike anyone else does. Later that night I was thinking again about how I really wished I could be learning about God with her and decided to write her an email about it. . . turns out that she is currently doing the same study 3500 miles away!! When things like that happen God just feels so much bigger than everything else. How awesome is our God?!
