Coffee & Fellowship!

As you would know if you were a regular reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), there are a few things I do once monthly.

One of them is meeting with some Christian friends at Tim Horton's. We're back to meeting at the Timmie's at Crawford & Wyandotte St. W., at 7:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. If you'd like to join us, feel free to meet with us!

In February, our friend R brought with her photos of one of her vacations. We all enjoyed looking at them and discussing her trip.

At that time, Y asked me if I would bring vacations pics for our March meeting. So, that's what I did.

We had a new person join us. He didn't appear to like the idea of looking at travel pics, but then, I'm sure he wasn't aware that I had done so, to fulfill a request.

In any case, I believe we all had a great time! Even our newest member, I think!

It's a shame that we no longer have quite as large a group as we had in the past, but then, some people decided to meet with a new group that meets also on Fridays. So, it's not really surprising that our numbers are not as large as before.

However, I tend to like the more personal, intimate-sized group that we now have. After all, we're just friends going out for coffee and fellowship!

Besides, it sure beats sitting at home, alone.

I've said it before and I'll say it, again.  It's not a case where I don't like being alone. 

Au contraire!

Oops...  Now, you probably think I speak French, fluently!  lol  Sorry, I do not.  However the phrase seemed to fit the need, to a tee!

In fact, there are times when I truly enjoy my alone time.  Sometimes, I enjoy just sitting back, relaxing and reading a good book.

However, life becomes ritualistic and boring, when a person has the same routine, day after day.  Especially, when there is no one to talk with, share a meal with, or any other part of life.

Yes, life can be lonely.  So, I am grateful to have times like these, where I can get out with friends, even if it is just for coffee and some conversation. 

Until next time...
