Life is strange at times. I am SINGLE (so, if you know a Christian man who is SINGLE too, send him my way). In the last few years, I do not have many single friends. The ones I did have partied way too much and I had "grown" out of that. I still like to go for a drink every now and then.....and I still love to dance.....but "to go out" with the intention of getting drunk is not my idea of having a good time, or getting home at 5am totally stresses me out now. I even attend a Church with very few Single People. Honestly, I think I am the youngest female in my church....by at least 15+ years. Pretty Sad. Back home in New Orleans, I had lots of Single friends. We went out, shopped, watched movies, read together, spent time together, double dated, enjoyed our single-lives. The Women in my Life now are incredible Women, but they are married----and most with Children. It's a great blessing they have their husband's and children. Praise God for them. It's hard being the only Single Friend in my circle of Friends. It has it's ups & downs. The Upside is if there was an available man, I do not have to beat up anyone else for him! ;) The downside of it is that I AM SINGLE. I have started praying for God to lead me to a group of friends who are Single......maybe I should branch out and find a new church with a "real" Singles program. I am also praying for God to lead me to my Husband to be too. I am seriously thinking about finding a new church. I am completely torn at what I should do because I adore the church I attend right now. BUT I do believe I am held down quite a bit at my church (but that's a different story).
Last Sunday, my friend Jackie from back home called and told me she was moving to Dallas! Jackie is SINGLE. I am so very excited to have her here. Jackie should be moving to Dallas by the end of April, if not May. Heavenly Father, Thank you for Old Friends.
