Friday night we had a wonderful couple who we have gotten to know quiet well invite us out to dinner. We though to ourselves that would be nice to fellowship and get to know some more people at our church.
We all met at his little bed and breakfast that was absolutely beautiful. There were nine total and my husband and I really only knew the couple that had invited us. From the moment we got there until the moment we walked out of the door we had a grand time. The conversations were so rich I wanted the night to never end. I loved being with all of these people. We did not just talk about the weather and minimal things, we spent time talking and sharing and learning from each other about our Lord. It was awesome. My husband and I left there saying we have never been with a group of people who were not afraid to talk about deep issues. All of these couples are about 10 -15 years older than us and I see such wisdom in all of them.
To end our wonderful night we came to to a very awesome babysitter. This young lady is 16 years old and my children absolutely love her. She is a woman of God already. Her ministry is to babysit for couples so they can get a break and she does not charge anything. This Friday night I tried to give her some money since she watched our kids for 6 hours and she just looked at me and said, " I won't take that I get paid by my job and that is what my job is for." Remember she is only 16. I thought what an awesome girl she really is just wanting to serve and help people out. My husband who doesn't really pay attention to these kinds of things even said something. He came home and said, "Wow she is a great kid. I told her thank you for watching the girls for us and for staying so late for us." This is what she said,"That's O.k. You deserve it. I hope you guys had a good time." I just want to tell her mom you are doing a wonderful job raising your children to love God and serve him.
So that was our wonderful night that we had fellow shipping with friends.
