I went to church today.
I can’t remember the last time I stepped foot in a church that wasn’t for a funeral.
I could write out a list of reasons. All invalid excuses.
Is there really a valid excuse?
Illness, hospitalization, your own death. that’s probably it.
most Sunday’s I never even considered going to church.
chris asked me if I wanted to get out of the house (alone) for a while. at first, I wasn’t going to go. there are 10,000 things that need to be done around here – so I was just going to stay home.
then I remembered that my original plan for today was to go to church, as a family. no one was anywhere near ready to go, and I didn’t have the energy to try and round them up and out the door in 15 minutes. so I got myself ready and left.
I felt like this was my chance. A chance to get my foot in the door with no resistance from anyone.
I liked it.
I’m planning on going again next Sunday.
