Have you ever been part of something where you just felt an incredible sense of community? For a season, I was part of such a group. The group is Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Studies. The ladies who volunteer are such a wonderful, loving and compassionate group. For a season, I had to step away from my role as a Facebook Small Group leader due to our recent move to Texas. However, I have been able to stay in touch with many of the ladies through Facebook. Plus, the ladies who were part of my Facebook Small group provide such a source of love, friendship, and Christian fellowship. These women truly are my sisters in Christ.
I have been waiting patiently (well truthfully maybe not that patiently) for the opportunity to return to the ministry. Today I took the first step towards returning, which involved a phone interview. Now I have some more waiting for the first steps of training to begin. But it feels so right to know I am on my way back to volunteering for an awesome ministry that touches the lives of so many. I truly feel blessed to have this opportunity. I consider today to also be a fresh start of attempting to keep up with my blogs. Intentions are great, but sometimes my “real” life has to take priority. So I am picking up where I am and striving to stick to writing now.
At the same time, I am continuing on my weight loss journey. The battle never ends, but I know ultimately it is worth the effort. I have been doing better about drinking more water and less of other things.
So what is going on in your life? I would love to hear from you!
