The relationships I've gained from attending or organizing various CM gatherings are some of the most meaningful ones in my life. I am blessed beyond belief to have met people who have opened their hearts to me and accepted my friendship whole-heartedly. Could any of these people be ' the one,' or KNOW 'the one' to introduce me to? (Keep in mind there are friends of friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbors, etc.) Only God knows that. My job is to pray about it, and get out of my own way to let it happen.
I remain open and hopeful about my journey, and have made the conscious choice to actively enjoy every step of the way. I believe I grow a bit deeper in my faith with each event, and hopefully I become a better person with each encounter.
In HIS time, not mine.
(As you learned at the Farm Outing - I also don't hesitate to step up and engage others in conversation, and ask for people to join me in activities - such as boat rides, games, singalongs. Fun times and plenty of laughs are ahead for those that willingly participate!)
