I joined an (In) Courage group during their last session; thanks to my friend STM! I have loved being a part of this group. Something so holy about finding people that are like me and understand my hopes and dreams and simply get me!
I am thankful for this group but it is still hard in the midst of life to find those who can say "me too!" I have been blessed by some amazing friends yet almost all of them are married and/or have kiddos! I love them and their kids so much but I still wonder when it will happen for me!
There are days I'm so frustrated that this prayer hasn't been answered for me yet! I want to ask God when, where etc it will happen! But then I realize that that would ruin the fun; the fun of the chase!
Recently I have gone to a few events with guy friends. I've enjoyed that time and wonder where God is leading these friendships etc! Why does love have to be so complicated and difficult?
But then I'm reminded that love has it's hard parts too! This week a friend shared with me that her family's dog is in his final days of life! She said, the hard part of love is the hurting and the loss!" Oh how true!
So I need to remember that in time, this will happen for me! I just need to remember to be "gentle" with myself! Even when most days that is oh so very difficult to do!
Because in the end, I trust that God will answer my prayer....and that the love that will be given to me and that I will give in return will be completely and totally worth it!
