So while I have a few moments I am testing out the LJ app. It isn't as and as I expected it to be!

Tonight is the last night of small group which makes me sad...because when I had nothing going for me and essentially no hope they were a big part in why I kept pressing on. It is hard leaving people you consider your spiritual family. We are doing a white elephant gift exchange which should be interesting.

I don't think my gift would be considered a white elephant to some, but it is a Holly Hobby vase with a quote about friendship and a little painting with bejeweled flowers and a quote. It was given to me by a girl who NEVER had good taste in gift giving for me and when I got it for Christmas one year I had no idea How she came to the conclusion that I would like those things. Yes they are "Girly cute" but that is not me decor wise. So thank goodness for White elephant!

I also finished a scarf for my friend Zach. I don't like the cast off since it is CONSIDERABLY tighter, but not matter what I tried the tension would not quit being tight. So now instead of a line it is more of a curve...

I am sorry this is your last night of small group. I hope that you are able to find others that you consider a spiritual family. Why is the group ending - and is it picking up again at some point next year?

As of last night we weren't sure how we were going to progress. All of us believe that we still needed to get together because we ALL needed that time...we just did not want to move before the Holy Spirit led us to move. After last night, we know that we will be getting together after the Holiday break, but in what context, we have no idea.

The group "ended" because we were finished with our studies, finals are coming up as well as Christmas break.

Is it just over for Christmas break?

I believe so...because if it doesn't start back up I will feel like a fish without water! :S

I was going to ask the same thing. You should go ahead and set your start-back date now! *hugs*

Will you have time to get together for Christmas? If not, and according to the comments, it may start up again after the holidays -- you'll see them again soon. Hopefully. =)

Last night was our last night of Bible study and Christmas get together. (I didn't get out of there until 12:30.) It was a bittersweet time since a few are not going to be regulars next semester because God has called them to a path that takes them away from us...but it was still very good and one of the best nights of my life.

I'm sorry to hear it will be your last meeting as a group, but glad you had a nice time. =)

I'm sorry your group is breaking up. I didn't know you weren't continuing it. Will you still be in contact with any of them?

I liked Holly Hobby when I was...10?

At least with scarves you wear them around your neck so no one will notice! :)
