Ever since I become a stay at home mommy with Collin, I have attended a women's bible study at church on a weekly basis. Even after Emma was born, I attended that fall's bible study. I missed the first week, because it started only a couple weeks after she was born, but other than that, I was there. And I didn't attend these studies because I "had" to, as if it was the "good, Christian thing" to do. I just love studying the Word, especially with other women.
However, this year has brought many changes, nearly all of which are good. At the first of the year, we were still living at my parents while we worked on getting our new home ready. Then, in March, we finally moved into our new home. We have been continually working on it since...boy, there are always projects that need to be done, especially when you buy a house that needs updating! Those things alone required me to take a break this past spring from a women's bible study at church. Summer rolled around, which brings it's usual craziness. And now that fall is here, we're starting our homeschool year and I just don't know that I could keep up with everything.
I'm so privileged and thankful for the bible study I get to lead with 'my girls' every Thursday night. We have been studying together for nearly two years and it is truly a highlight of my week. Having them and our study together makes it easier to say "no" to a women's bible study at church.
My eyes have just been opened, though, to this new season I'm
Have you found yourself in a season like this? Or another season? I'd love to hear how you handled these times.
Until next time,
