i hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving holiday. i know i did. and i have so much to be thankful for...my family, tho not perfect they are mine and i love them very much. my friends, even though they are so far away i still get to feel their love everyday. for ben, he gets it in a way that no one else has before. i truly feels like he likes me for me. he is awesome. pringle for being the cutest most precious dog in the world. my car for not breaking down on me...yet. my health and my job. im so thankful that God has blessed me with so many things. my heart is so full there are times i can barely catch my breath.
I'm really glad you had such a great holiday.
I've also been thinking about going back to church. I grew up going every week, but I struggled with my beliefs in middle and high school and it all fell by the wayside.
I don't really know what I believe anymore, but it is something that I think about often.
I think it's great you are exploring Christianity :) Makes me so happy. I even talked about you on the way to church this morning haha.
The preacher said the greatest thing this morning. He was talking about how his mother had a stroke, and how she had dedicated her entire life to God, and how his first thought was, "she doesn't deserve this."
And how it has been so hard for him to come to terms with the truth, and that the truth is, no one deserves anything from God. Anything we get is just a blessing. Once you start feeling like you deserve something or are entitled to something, you aren't truly thankful, you are proud, and that is unacceptable.
One of the most moving things I've heard in church in a very long time. I love being knocked back down to humble :)
