I am skipping through the house tonight as I have written my letter of resignation for the Home Health Co. - Yippee - Looking forward to staying (mostly) on one schedule.
Some other thoughts....
I have struggled for some time with the fact that we don't go to church regularly. We will go for awhile and than not.
Not that I don't believe, I do... very much so. God is a pivotal aspect of my everyday life, both in prayer and deed. It is also an everyday aspect of my interactions with my children. Jesus is the basis for what I do. When I go to work, I do so with the belief that I am doing God's work of helping others in need, showing Jesus' love.
While contemplating this again (insert guilt here), I was struck with the thought that very rarely in the bible --- (OK I am not a scholar, however, 10 yrs of catholic school and various churches) --- rarely in the bible does it mention Jesus going to the synagogue. However, throughout all the pages of the Bible it repeatably teaches of how he helped the poor and sick, did onto others and showed undying love.
Joyce Meyer, a preacher, teaches that guilt is from satan to make us feel lousy.
So... my thoughts are that I should pitch the guilt, continue as I am and hopefully I will find a church that I am so compelled to attend its a burning need. I once mentioned that I volunteered instead of going to church and I figured God would like that more. My "friend" told me that God would like it if I did both, and that has made me feel less ever since.
Why did I post this? I really don't know. Except that I'm tired of feeling less because I have not found a church that fills whatever it is that we go to church for. Maybe, that by admitting such, it will cease to have power over me. I don't know....
Have an awesome week.... and thanks for listening to my ramblings and being a sounding board I guess. Karrie
