Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for the fellowship that I enjoy with the women of our church. Our church has grown some but its still pretty small by most people's standards. One of the benefits of that as far as I'm concerned is that it's easier to get to know everyone. And among those I've gotten to know more recently is a delightful young woman who invited all the women of the church to her house for lunch today.

That's another advantage to being fairly small. We can still gather comfortably in someone's home! Well, all the women at least.

Not every woman of the church was able to come but many did and most age brackets and stages of adult womanhood were represented. That caused me to reflect on my thankfulness for that aspect of being small as well. We're not all broken into groups of peers! I appreciate and enjoy the fellowship of women in various ages and stages of life! Each one brings something special to the group and to me personally. Each one gives me a particular reason to thank God for her. And so I do!

Your group of church ladies sounds like mine! I am so thankful for our small church and for my friends and sisters in the Lord who encourage me and love me well.
