Giving Thanks - Day 16 - My Church

Today being Sunday, I thought it a good day for Day 16 - to give thanks for my church. My husband and I have always worshipped together on Sunday. For many years I sat alone in the pew, as hubby was a pastor. Those were wonderful days of service...and then the time came for us to be served to...that is where we are now. I enjoy our Sunday's together, worshipping in a church that praises and teaches about our Lord. I love singing in the choir and participating in the ladies events. We have a wonderful congregation that has faithfully upheld us before the Lord in prayer during my illness, and continue still to this day. I absolutely hate when for various reasons, I have to miss church. I feel, "out of the loop". I hope that many of you take some time during the weekend to worship and fellowship...it is a blessing to be very thankful for!

I am moving soon and hope and pray that I will find the "right church for me." I love going to church and getting involved--it's on the top of my "to-do" list in a few weeks. You can bet I will post about it when it happens:)

Yes, we were there this morning - at SBC. We love that church and we love Pastor Jamie Rasmussen. He has just been here a year. We started going there partly because we liked the former preacher, but this one is as good. It seemed strange to us although we have kind of gotten used to it now. This is the first church we have been members of in over 50 years where my husband was not the pastor. I hope your son will come back to church at SBC. Every Sunday is inspiring and although we haven't become very involved, there are plenty of opportunities for involvement for everybody.

We have been very blessed to find wonderful churches every time we have moved.

I didn't know your husband was once a pastor. Nice man.

That's a great post! Church has been my life since I was a little girl and it still is. I'm pianist at my little church and wear many other hats. I love to serve the Lord.
Be a sweetie,
