That’s funny–I was just muttering about not having posted for 4 or 5 days, and then read in my blog from two years ago, how I’d not posted for “three days!”
Today’s “word for the day” was very easy to come up with: love. Because it was the theme in three of my readings this morning. Love is what I’ve been feeling at our new church; and the old one as well, as I share concerns at the Ladies’ Meeting that I still go to; as well as our Small Group that we still attend. But (speaking of love) I’m getting so attached to that new church, just when it happens that we might be moving cities–GAAAH!! I’ve been anxious to get a little more involved in church again, but now that will have to be delayed some more.
After living for 35 years here, you can imagine the churning inside me… If it’s in the morning, I can be excited about moving closer to family, having a new home, etc. If it’s at night (or on Sunday after church), I feel like saying “I can’t, I just can’t!” Plus, there’s the mother-heart, doing its worry-job, asking if it’s really the right thing, etc.
What I’ll have to look up, is the church communities in the area we might be moving to. Of course, there is no doubt that God’s family will be just as wonderful there, but it would just comfort me to know more about it.
Oh, after the usual readings this morning, I opened up an extra one to get caught up (after having weekend visitors). The theme of that one: “fresh start”……. ;)
“…get out there and walk – better yet, run! – on the road God called you to travel. I don’t want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don’t want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline – not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.” (Ephesians 4:1-3)
