A new season

I love the first night of Life Group.
Who's going to show up?
What will they say?
How many awkward silences will there be?
How many people will I know?
How many NEW people will be there?
Who will do most of the talking?
How badly will I embarrass myself?

Tonight was the first night of Life Group.
Shelby (my roommate) and I are leading a Women's group this Spring.
In one word, tonight was perfect.
What an amazing mix of women!
Some married, some single, some with kids, some without, some newly married, some divorced. It's perfect. I can't wait to see what God does with this season and this amazingly unique group of women. The overwhelming cry coming from the women in this group is that we ALL want to be united and connected with other women in our community. My hope for this group is that strong bonds are formed, friendship begin, and God works in powerful ways through those relationships.
I'm excited.
Excited for a new season
Excited for what God is going to do in and through this Life Group
Excited for the stories that will come out of this group
Excited for the possibility of lives changed through this group
I'm just plain excited.
