overwhelmed. in a good way.

I can honestly say that I *thought* this season of life would be easy.
Being married & living with my best friend.. who happens to be my husband sounded simple.
And yes, that part is (for the most part) easy peasy.

What I didn’t realize is how much I would miss having friends at my disposal. Take college for example: at any given moment of the day, I could call up one of my girl friends to grab a cup of coffee, go for a walk, or sit and watch Lifetime movies with. Although I still have those girlfriends from college, none of them live near me.

I struggle with making friends. I don’t love having tons of “friends” and no real friends. You know what I’m saying?

When David and I first got married, we struggled to find a church home that fit our needs. When we finally found one, we got plugged into a small group. It wasn’t all we hoped it would be, but we stuck it out. Eventually, at the end of the year, 3 out of 5 of the couples moved away. We prayed as a group (the two remaining couples) about adding to our numbers and through word of mouth and placement through our church, we now have SEVEN AMAZING COUPLES in our small group. The Lord answered that prayer abundantly.

He answered our prayer for more small group couples, but He also answered my prayer for friends.  I am so thankful. and SO overwhelmed. in a good way.

Last Friday at work, David called & said he had some tickets to the Cotton Bowl, so we hopped in the car after work and headed to the game. We LOVED watching the Ags BTHO ou.

  1. God is so good to meet us right where we are. I am glad that you are resting in all that He has for you and your hubs’ life.

    Enjoy your small group and yay A&M(fellow Texan)

  2. I completely understand that feeling! I was just pondering the other day how I only have very few real friends where we live now. The lamest part? I was thinking if I hosted a get together there would only be a few fun ladies I’d know to invite. Ugh. So glad you’ve found your group of friends though! Gives me hope that I’ll find mine! 😉

  3. We got married the same summer as you and I have had similar feelings. Only difference being my health has greatly impacted my life so for a while all I could do was stay home and I rarely saw people. Now my husband and I found a church and have met some amazing people through small groups. Happy God has answered both our prayers!

  4. I belong to a small group at our church. We have six couples and they are awesome. They have all become our best friends and I know I can call any one of them at any time and they will drop every thing and be there for me. We call them Care groups because we all take care of each other.
