So, my Wednesday night fellowship group is on hold... for how long, I don't know.

We'd been meeting for several weeks, going through the book Captivating, sharing what was going on in our lives and praying for one another. I really like the other girls in the group, and was enjoying starting to get to know them. We are all Christian women, right about the same age, but with a wide variety of backgrounds and stages of life.

Anyways, one of the girls is going back to school and is required to take a Wednesday night class. Unfortunately, one of the other girls, who lives a good distance away and doesn't have a car of her own, was depending on her for a ride. So that would knock out half our group right there. As the leader began discussing our options to keep the group going, such as meeting on another night, or moving the meeting place, the two confessed that neither one of them were interested in continuing with that particular book.

I have to admit, I'm disappointed. I've been wanting to discuss Captivating with other Christians since I read the book a couple of years ago. There are a lot of ideas about femininity and womanhood I want to explore.

But, I don't feel that I can blame these girls for desiring a study with a greater focus on the Bible. And, if they aren't into Captivating, we wouldn't be able to have those conversations anyways. So for now, we've agreed to look for a new study and come back together at some point. In the meantime, I am able to spend my Wednesday nights with Gary at the HS summer pool parties. And while that's a good thing, I'm still bummed.

Awwww, I'm bummed for you too! God has his hand in it somehow. Maybe now's just not the quite right time. Hope everything else is going really well with you guys! I'm trying to enjoy my last few days with da Bonus. Goodness that's weird to think about. All the more reason to come out to Cali, right? Happy 4th!
