It's been just a about a month since I last posted on this blog and I feel the urge to start posting here again, so here I am.
It was pretty chilly here this morning as I went on my morning walk. The sun came out and it was just perfect for walking. I walked over to and around the little wet land pond. I took this picture of the pond with the morning fog.
I have lived in the townhouse for 6 months now and there is a church a couple of blocks from my house. Though I grew up going to church all the time and have been a born again Christian since I've been a little girl, I haven't gone to church in a very long time. I pray and read my Bible daily and always thought that was enough for me. I've been walking past this church almost every day since I've lived here, and during the past few weeks I have been having a feeling that I should go there. Well, today was the day that I listened to that feeling and went. I can't tell you how good it made me feel walking in that church. It was like coming home again. Everyone was so friendly and I felt most welcome. The service had lots of singing in it which I like. The sermon itself reminded me of the sermons from my old church when I was a kid. I didn't feel like I was being preached at but learning things right from the Bible. We are studying Romans - today was Romans 3. I look forward to going back next Sunday morning. I am so glad I walked in that church. :-)
I have just finished reading a book called Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs which I though was excellent. Every one who is married or thinking about getting married should read this book. It really opens your eyes.
I had an craving for some Hot Crispy Beef so I walked over to Hunan Legend and got some take away for supper tonight. There is always left overs so I guess I'll be eating that again for supper tomorrow!
Right now I think I'll go sit out on the deck and do a little knitting until the sun goes down and I can't see.
I want to thank you all for all your kind thoughts, good wishes, and prayers that you have said for Ken and I as we are going through a rough time. Things are improving with us and we are headed in the right direction. Please keep the prayers coming. They always help. :-)
Tomorrow at 6:00 AM my mom is having surgery on her foot - please send up a prayer for her too. Thanks.
I hope your Sunday was a day filled with sunshine.
As you can see I'm not using happyone anymore but my name. I feel the name happyone is just too much to live up to. I felt like I always had to be happy and lets face it, no one is happy all the time.
The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping
stones is how you use them.
