Laying it all out there

This year I told myself  things would be different.  Things were going to change!- at least that's what I told myself....  We started going to a new church and Paul quickly blended in to the men's activities. He has gone to men's breakfasts and also to weekly Spanish men's Bible study.  He has really integrated well with the men and truly enjoys the fellowship he has with them.
Lizzie has found a sweet group of widows to fellowship with, who understand her stage in life more than any of us could understand. She also goes to a widows Bible study and has seemed to adjust well to our church change.
Then here I am...  Not really plugged in anywhere, not really sure what to do.  Most ladies my age  are mommies and are in a different season of life then I'm in.  I find as of lately that I truly am lonely. Now don't get me wrong...  I have family near by, and a wonderful husband but what I lack is a true friend.  It's not that I'm not friendly...  I'm outgoing, not shy...  I'm a giver not a taker.  But I haven't for some reason found anyone that I could just be friends with!
My prayer this year has been that God send me a true friend!  I need to keep praying.... And need to be thankful for what god has given me so far!  Why does is seem so hard for me lately?
Will you join with me and pray?  Pray that I be content in my season of life.
I have memorized this verse to help me out!
Psalm 37:4
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Ah, Kathy, I kind of know what you are going through. It is really lonely not to have a close friend. I am so thankful for my hubby, and my sister, but sometimes I miss not having that 'someone'. I'll pray for you that you'll have someone soon!

May He give you the desires of your heart, or make His decisions the desires of your heart!

Love you sweet girl, and thank you for sending the clip and pins to Tesa! She loves them!

I've been praying and will continue to lift you up in prayer during this season of your life.

I was just telling someone the other day that it's so strange how things are right now for us. You are the outgoing one who thrives to be social and I am the shy one who is content to be at home. But somehow our roles right now are changed. I've been able to connect with two group at church now and it has been a blessing but it does burden my heart to see you alone.

Let's make it a priority and go to the Lady's Bible study on Tuesday nights. Let's get to know more ladies.

Although I don't know the reason, I do know God has a plan for this season in your life.
