In my short twelve weeks of church services, I have discovered that, like the movie “Love Actually,”  where Love is actually all around, that God is actually all around too!  I have enjoyed every single church service that I have attended.  I recently watched the movie “The Answer Man” and there is a scene where the main character is in a church, moving from pew to pew trying to position himself in an optimum local to “connect” with God.  Sometimes I feel like this character.  But, like most things in life, I feel we tend to over analyze things.  I am taking what I like and leaving the rest.  I am praying everyday.  I pray with my son every night before bedtime.  We light a candle and hold hands and pray for Elihume, the boy we sponsor through Compassion International from Ethiopia.  We pray for Logan’s dad.  We pray for our family, our friends, our enemies, strangers and those that are sick, homeless, cold, lonely, heart broken, grieving, hungry…etc.  We then give our gratitude for everything we have and the opportunities and gifts we have been given in life.   We are creating a bond with each other and with God.  Sometimes Logan tells me that Jesus wants him to eat candy…and I am good with that.    I am happy that Logan and Jesus have a fun side…happy spirits.

A writer is inspired by people reading their writing…please comment and let me know you were here.  Just to give me encouragement if nothing else.  It takes a village to raise a child.  It takes an audience to hone a successful writer.

Thanks for stopping by my little world.  Feel free to “follow” my post.

Love to all of you.

I am not a religious person at all, but I am taking a spiritual journey...through a completely different route than ever before. I am going to visit a different church each week for 2012 and document my experience. I hope you enjoy reading about my journey as much as I enjoy writing about it. Peace be with you.

  1. You are amazing and funny! I am so proud of you for the journey you are on and the way you lead your life. I too believe god has a fun side and that he is around us all the time, all we have to do is stop and listen. A friend of mine recently asked me “does God talk to you.” I happily answered he talks to me all the time. You know when you turn on the radio and the perfect christian song is playing or the sermon was just what you needed to hear, this is god speaking to us. Sometimes in the center of my soul i hear a quiet voice that says “it will be all right, quit worrying.” This is God talking to me. When you see a stranger on the street you feel compelled to help, this is God speaking. All we have to do is open our hearts and listen. It is then that his grace is poured down upon us.

  2. I was here and love you Heid. I am proud of you for your commitment and that you are writing about it. Its awesome Heid.

  3. Heidi – Just read your blog and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a classmate, Easthaven member and seasoned church girl, my perspective of church needs to be challenged. Thank you for sharing your journey and exposing me to your fresh perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed your writing. It is honest, humorous & alive.

    God is hilarious. This is why we need each other in the journey. God didn’t give me a funny side (or great writing skills), but I have other sides that other’s don’t. Thanks for sharing.

    Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
    Keep seeking, keep praying, keep loving!
    Love you, Brenda
