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.
