Upon visiting the class the first time, I was literally welcomed with an "open door" and "open arms". They didn't seem to care that I was single. If fact for a class that was made up of mostly marrieds, I was surprise just how I did fit in. As a single you know it's hard to fit into the "married world" despite the fact that we are outnumbering the marrieds. That despite all the work of educating marrieds about who singles are and that we won't rub off on you, we still feel left out.
Well, this past Saturday I found out something that made me realize why I was fitting in so well. I found out that the majority of my class were single/divorced at some point in time in their adult lives. Several of them were single till their late 30's and 40's. So singleness to them was not a bad thing or something that had to be "fixed". They understood the challenges of being alone. They understood the positives and the negatives. They understood me.
Wow, how blessed I am that before I know things, God is ahead of me, preparing me for the future. And truly, my Sunday school class "Open Door" fits. Thank you Jesus.
