Wow! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since making a post! I really have no explanation for not writing, but one thing is certain – I’ve missed writing! So, I’m back!! Today’s post is going to be short, as I’ve got many tasks that need to be finished so that I have time to prepare for church tonight. I love that we can attend church tonight to celebrate Easter and then have a morning of quiet celebration tomorrow. For some, it seems odd, but for me it’s a blessing. It’s rare that I have a morning that may be spent with extra quiet time, so I look forward to preparing some food for our family dinner, listen to praise music, and having time to just read, worship, and savor some quiet time.
Last evening (Good Friday!), we commemorated Christ’s death by attending our church’s communion service. I love having communion in our church family. While we attend a large church, it seems small to me because we know so many there. This time we sat with our small group family, folks that have become so near and dear to our hearts. If you aren’t a member of a small group, and that’s something that your church offers, I highly encourage you to try it. In our church the theme for small groups is: “life is better together”. That is so true! We text one another with encouragement and share prayer requests. And while we may not even see one another in between our scheduled meetings, it’s nice to know we have a circle of friends who regularly prays for us. Both my husband and I appreciate the friendship and closeness of our group – it certainly makes the hard times lighter and the good times greater – all because we care for one another and “do” life together! I firmly believe that God places people in our path for purpose, and I treasure being a part of their lives. Not to mention, I am very thankful for the part they play in mine!
So, I’m going to sign off, for now! I’ve got a list and I need to get to it!! Happy Easter, friends! Stay tuned….I’ll be back soon!
