Day 9: Making Church a Priority

I love my church.  LOVE it.  I love the worship, the pastors (!!), the people, the sharing, the music, the learning, the message.  It’s become a very big part of our life and I can’t imagine what our life here would be like without it as an anchor. 

At the beginning, it was work to make sure we got there each Sunday.  We had a 2-year-old and a 2 month old; it would have been much easier to just stay home.  We didn’t know anyone.  We were a bit shy and apprehensive.   But we marched on because we knew we should.  We knew it would be good for us as a family in our walk.   We didn’t quite know how important it would become, and we certainly wouldn’t have guessed that our weekly attendance and everything else that stems from it, would be such a pivotal part of our lives.  

Over the years (9 to be exact) attending church has become habitual.  We love going.  It’s what we do.  It’s a part of our life. 

BOY are we glad we marched on in those early days. 

Reflection of Day 9: 

Being intentional about important things in my life makes it easier to continue being intentional about important things in my life.  

And that smart fish Dory comes to mind again:  “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…

    You are very blessed. We just left our church of 11 years, and it is very painful. Finding a good church is one of life’s greatest blessings!
