A better me

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Today I'm preparing to join a church.
Some people do not see the value of a basic UCC church, but I am growing in my relationship with God and with others here.
It's a small congregation, and I love everyone in the group. We are all different, yet all the same. No one is perfect, and that is fine. We are all examples of who Christ is, and that is what I need.
I have found a place to call home.

    I love it when it all feels so right. Home is such a wonderful place to be at in your heart. Never a building but a place to build within and with others.

    Yes. The spiritual and the social components of church and faith are the rewards of finding a home you are comfortable in.

    Wonderful!!! You know . . . there definitely is a uniqueness about every one of us, but the bottom line is . . . that's how He created us . . . that's in the grand design. Hurray for that!

Blessings on this Thursday.

    I have to say, like everyone else, "Good for you." Just know there will be ups and downs that come with membership. Be a beacon of Light, Jackie.
