Moving to a new community and not knowing many people has been more of a struggle for me than I first realized. Since I work at home, I don’t necessarily get out and about to meet people as often as I once did.
Living in a new place and being married has been great, but I haven’t had as much of a friend connection. I am a very social person and enjoy very much all the friends I do have in my life. However, most of those people do not live in the Carroll area.
This past weekend I attended a Christ Renews His Parish Retreat at Kuemper High School in Carroll. There were moments when I thought I wasn’t going to go, but it was THE BEST decision I have made in a long time.
Not only did I find a renewed relationship with Christ, I now have a whole community of women, my CRHP sisters, who I look forward to getting to know better.
This group of women showed me what I have been missing on many different levels of my life. I had a relationship with Christ, but didn’t take as much time as I now will to nurture that relationship.
I was definitely filled with the Holy Spirit and can’t wait to continue on this journey with Christ and my CRHP sisters.
Thank you to all of the women and men of CRHP for putting this weekend retreat together. It has changed my life in more ways than I probably know right now.
Please pray for me and I will keep all of you readers out there, whoever you are, in my daily prayers.
