Great Night

Tonight we had our first small group meeting of this semester. If you've been reading here for a while, I mentioned before the hurricane that John and I were going to lead a group - well that didn't workout and we've decided to join another group.

I was a little unsure about how we were going to fit in because we are quite a bit younger than the other members of the group we chose... but once again I was wrong. There is just something about John and I that makes us fit in so well with any group from our church.

The meeting was a lot of fun too - it was a "get to know you" session tonight, but for the first time in my ENTIRE life...I actually enjoyed the ice-breaker activity. Our leader, Don, gave us each a large sheet of paper off of one of those flip-charts that you'd see used in a corporate meeting. He asked us to section it into 4 sections, and use it to draw a "flag" of different parts of our life. (For some reason I kept calling it a map, but whatever.)

The four sections were Family, Spiritual Journey, Hobbies/Interests, and finally Most Embarrassing Moment/Scariest Moment. This lead to some funny drawings, and even funnier stories when we all got up to present our flags to the group.

We will be hanging out with them every Friday night from now until the beginning of December, and I think this is going to be a lot of fun! (Renee - you and K should think about coming... it really is a GREAT group!) (Jen B. - you too if you haven't joined another group.)

For now though, I'm headed off to bed... its going to be an action packed weekend with the big Birthday Extravaganza tomorrow, and then another one on Sunday afternoon too. I think that means that you'll be getting some great posts with pictures as soon as I can catch up and upload them to the computer!
