Something really cool this morning - our Sunday school class had a ladies' breakfast. It was decided by someone higher up (maybe Polly? she's a minister's spouse, that trumps deacon's wife) that we should get together the first Saturday of the month. My dad has been going to a "men's breakfast" at Couch's since I was a little kid and loves it. He almost never misses it. I'm starting to get it.
What I thought was great about it was that the only things we all had in common were that we were female and we loved the Lord. Some had kids, some didn't. Some worked, some didn't. Some were well-off, some were paycheck to paycheck. Some were dieting, some were eating poppy-seed muffins (with way too many poppy-seeds, one might say).
But whether we work or not, whether we're introverts or extroverts, we need that fellowship time. I may be way off here, but I believe that is why God called us to come together in worship. We can praise Him when we are all alone (and we should!) but until we are up there in His presence, it is a physical comfort in this world to praise with others. And to talk with others. And to laugh with others!
May God bless you, my friends, just like I was blessed today!
