Girls Night Out

Last night I went out with a bunch of cool ladies to the Melting Pot. So good, and so expensive, but it was Ladies Night there, so they had some specials. Honestly, I didn't go for the food, I went for the conversation and the company. I used to find any excuse to not go out. I always felt guilty leaving Eric, and Molly. But now I feel worth the excuse to go out. I love going out, and building my friendships and relationships with great women.

After doing a Bible Study with some cool chicks, I learned a lot about having female relationships in your life. Trust me, I know it's hard to trust women, and be a good friend. Women are tricky...they can be your best friend, or your worst nightmare! But God did not intend for us to be this way. Check out Jen Hatmaker, she is an awesome Bible Study writer and she really opened my eyes to what a true female friendship looks like.

So here we are after we stuffed our faces and tummy's full!

I can't wait for the next night out!

That's so neat! I'm glad you all had a great time!

I just had a revelation while reading your post that I hadn't really thought about before and that is that I just don't trust women. I think I don't even try to get to know them because I'm just sure that at some point they'll go behind my back and hurt my feelings. It probably stems from having to move in the middle of 8th grade and the trauma of that, but luckily I met my very best friend in 8th grade and we are still best friends to this day.

I just had never really thought about why I don't try to make more girlfriends. I'm going to really think more about this. I will check out the author and see what she's about too.

Thanks Kate! I feel like everywhere I turn, God plants little seeds of wisdom that He really wants me to think about. I'm trying to listen and learn!

So, are you excited about Molly's Birthday party? :)

Kate...I'm so glad you had an awesome time of fellowship with the girls. That is something that I totally want to find, but I just haven't yet. I still feel like I haven't connected at all with anyone at the church we've been going to.

Although I don't really have trust issues with other women, I still find it hard to make friends with other women. The hardest part for me is finding people I feel I have things in common with. I don't know a lot of SAHM's so it's kinda hard to be friends with women who work outside the home. The working set and the SAHM set are just two different groups of people. I keep praying that the Lord will put some Godly Christian women in my path, because although I love my Christian blogging friends, I would still like to meet some people I can actually see in real life! :)

Sounds like fun! We have a Melting Pot in town, but never have been. Maybe I should gather my girls, eat and enjoy Christ all together!

Your blessed to have nice friends. I have had some not so nice feeling lately about woman. I know that there are great ones out there but I see their actions and how they try to hurt each other and are jealous. It is enough to make me run at times.
