The weather is too lovely to stay inside all day. Yet here I am in bed still. It isn’t that I am tired; I slept pretty well actually. I am just being lazy (like a sloth). I am not ready to face another day…not yet.
Thankfully, it is Sunday – a day of rest. Church, if we were to go, would be 15 minutes from now. I think that it is safe to say that we won’t be attending. I have not lost the faith. I have simply been discouraged and overwhelmed. I hope that my prayers are still being heard and that God will steer me in the right direction.
It has been 3-4 weeks since I’ve attended church. I think that it is because the fit wasn’t quite right. I liked the people and I liked the message being delivered. The music was the hard part. I made me feel uncomfortable and lost. I longed for the familiar Catholic songs which have always soothed my soul. So the search will go on, when I can generate the energy for it.
And NOW, I think it is time to put my feet on the floor and get on with the day.
Dear God: Please watch over us and help us to heal and to find joy and purpose again in our lives.
