Are you a groupie?

I'm not and never have been.  I can still remember the years of trying so hard to fit in during middle and high school; I definitely don't want to go back to those days!  But I have been involved in groups over the years - my school years were taken up with orchestras, in college I was an engineer and so we had a study group, but they didn't really stick b/c they were activity based groups. 

My hubby and I had a great group of couples we used to hang out with about once a month (plus church) and that was probably one of the hardest things about our move.  When we moved I still considered these people to be my groupies and they are, but each of us had to move on.  For a long time, I missed that special relationship and longed to be able to rewind to my "happy times". 

Lately, the Lord has really been stretching me to open up and really get to know people and allow myself to love and be loved in return.  I'm not a very social person, I tend to be shy if you were to see me in person, but I am realizing that I can't be an island and that each of us need relationships.  So, back in February when the Lord laid on my heart to invite a Father and son over we did that and now almost 4 months later we have a large group that gets together every Sunday evening, and I love that!  We have celebrated birthdays, kids have played together, LOTS of meals have been eaten and hearts have been shared.  I could worry about getting my feelings hurt because that happens in a lot of situations or I could just enjoy what the Lord has put in my life for today!
