Tonight was the night.
My first night.
I am now a MOPS mom.

From 6-8 PM tonight, I sat with a group of women all in the same boat. They have children between the ages of zero and five. They have to worry about spit-up, high fevers, temper tantrums, food dried in places one never thought to look for food, separation anxiety. They get to watch personalities develop, brains grow, citizens being made. They are directly involved in building the future. They are like me!

Look at how He works. Neighbors bringing Abigail sticker books. Accidentally meeting family at an out-of-the-way restaurant. Going to parades and trying to keep from hibernating with another neighbor family. Being invited to MOPS. Going and having fun. Small snippets of His plan being revealed. Tiny promises of friendships that will go deep. How very exciting to be invited in this His adventure! How very glad I am that we accepted His invitation!


  1. Yeah, I'm so glad that Mops is working out for you! God IS good and I'm happy to see that you're seeing it too!!! Moving is hard but God is better! :)

  2. I'm so glad to see that you're settling in. And a bit jealous. I wanted to join MOPS but it's for SAHMs. They need a group for moms like me!!
    Vent over, I'm happy you are finding your place in a new town.
