People spend more than they have to buy things they dont need to impress people they dont like

Sunday, as usual. Westridge music…off the charts. I went to the 10:00 service as I couldnt get motivated to go to the early service. What a difference. The crowd is bigger. They are more into the service. I just couldnt believe the difference.
Afterwards, I went to the men’s small group and it was incredible. We basically turned it into a testimony share time and we all told our story about when we were saved. Then we broke up into small groups to pray for each other. Then as I was outside about to leave, Matt, one of the guys there, came up and asked me about my bike. We got to talking and he told me that I really bring a lot to the group. I told him I felt awkward about it at first being the old guy in the club, but he said that didnt matter. I told him I would see him Thursday night at the exchange. It really made me feel like for a change I fit in. Plus another one of the guys told me I should hang out with them. I am going to go to his work on Thursday for lunch. Should be interesting…..
For a change, I feel like I belong. Ain’t it great!
