Sense of Community

Where has our sense of community gone?? I mean really this has been bugging me so much lately. Let me state first off that I am not, I repeat NOT a social person naturally. I have to really try to put myself out there and deliberately take action to interact with others outside of my little family. I know though that the Lord wants us to be in community with each other and this is something that He has been working out in my life. So I guess it makes sense that He has sparked this desire in my heart to see people come together.

Recently my grandmother said these words to me..." I never see you guys anymore and I feel like I'm being pushed out". Wow that cut me. Why, regardless of her own motives in saying that to me, should my children not be seeing their GREAT grandmother on a regular and frequent basis??? Most people I know never even knew their great grandparents.
And then the other night Big Daddy and I were talking and he was saying how he'd like to see more frequent potlucks at our church.
Then I posted something to the effect of wanting to plan a monthly get together on Facebook and my cousin said her husband has been thinking the same thing.

Why is it people spend so much time working to get the things they want only to of lost so much time with the people they love??? Its just so silly!

So I'm going to try to plan a eat out for June. Weather should be good and kids will be out of school. I hope its something that will catch on.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
