Tonight, several of us ladies gathered at Crissy's for our Friday night ladies' night. These are so awesome. I would love for every woman to have this kind of circle of friends. We laugh, share, and cry together. Sometimes we even lovingly correct each other. It has always been a good thing. We call ourselves the Sister Chicks.
These get-togethers are always open-invitation to whoever wants to come, bring a friend, whatever. But recently, some people have commented that they feel left out and/or not welcome. Have we done something to exclude them? I don't know. Are they feeling unwelcome because of my selfish nature? I don't know. I do know that God has promised to show me my sin if I ask. Problem is, I don't want to know. How selfish is that?! Please pray for my sin to be revealed to me.
I miss our friends who have moved away (Angela) or have new schedules that don't allow them to come (Jennifer). I wish that my longlost friend (Tricia) could experience one of these ladies' nights. She would have a blast and would keep all of us in stitches.
If you don't have this kind of friendship, I will pray that God would share it with you. If you do have it, thank God for it because it's a blessing and a rarity. Pass it on. Look for ways and opportunites to develop these bonds.
