Feelin it

It has been almost a year now since my beloved CCAS closed it's doors and I am really feeling it. I have been all over the forums looking for a new place to pitch my tent and hang up my hat, a place to call home, but nothing feels right. Home is gone and nothing has been the same since. We are scattered like sheep everywhere.Isn't it funny how things can come together in one place with one leader, and everything feels so right! Yet, afterward nothing ever feels the same again. I seem to bounce from forum to forum and just can't settle down. I know on one board my two dear friends were there but it wasn't the same, dear Jen was missing. On another board a couple of other friends were there but again, Jen was missing... without the leader, it can't be the same.
It is that way when we stray away from God, we are lost and no matter how much good stuff we have, without God in out lives we are still lost. We can accumulate all the riches of earth and do lots of good things but if we don't have God it counts as nothing.
I miss you so much Jen, it seems as if all the forums are dead without you there to be the leader. I really do miss CCAS. I will fumble along at the Lovebug for now, but for how long will I be content there before I start looking for another place I can't help but wonder.

OMG Jackie I don't even know what to say. I too have been lost, just floating through space. Your post has brought tears to my eyes. I love all the ladies who called CCAS their home. I miss each and every one of you everyday. Things will never be the same. We must move forward though. Know that you are in my thoughts each and every day! I miss you and your commitment to my world. Thanks for your post. You have made my day!! Keep smiling!! .... Jen

I haven't quite found a place that truly feels like CCAS either Jackie. It really was home for so long and we all were such great freinds. I am grateful to still have you around.
BTW... Holy smokes... love the new blog look!!
