Gathering at Will's house at the beginning of the evening. Briley at counter, me and Kate on couch, Bennie by window.
We met up at Will's house. He bought and moved into it since we last met, so he was happy to show it off. After a little visiting, we went and ate dinner at Taco Dog. Then we went back to Will's house, talked a bit, then played Apples to Apples. It was fun and it was great to see everyone.

Last night we had a Canterbury reunion. Canterbury is an Episcopal young adult ministry. Spartanburg area had one, but we stopped meeting regularly almost two years ago because, well basically the peer leader moved away and none of the rest of us were in a position to step up and get trained. For me, it was lack of transportation, for others lack of time, etc. So even though Canterbury doesn't meet on a weekly basis, occasionally the old gang gets together. And last night was one of those times.

"Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'" Hebrews 13:5
which was very applicable to the worries and thoughts going on with me. Then when I prayed again, God showed me:
"Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread,
but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense." Proverbs 12:11
This made me put them together and be thankful and absorb. God is telling me to work, even if money is not apparent, and also to put aside worthless pursuits. I am thankful for His wisdom and guidance.
This was all so good, I prayed for Him to give me just one more, just one last verse for the night. And he gave me this:
"He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!" Revelation 22:20
which is one of the last verses in the Bible! And so lovely, isn't it?
I was filled with worshipful joy and love. God is amazing! I went to bed happy. And I got to share this with Canterbury!
Well, I am going to talk with Ryan. Thank you for being my bloggie friends! And if you have an opinion on anything, feel free to comment!
