First Sunday 2009
We have had a great first Sunday 2009! A wonderful first Sabbath.
We did wake up a bit late and were tempted to skip church, but thankfully didn't fall for the trick. The service was amazing. I felt God's presence as soon as I walked in the door...about 5 minutes late. The tears were flowing to the point of Marty asking if I was OK. The music was unbelievable, the spirit was moving, the communion was soul touching, and the sermon was perfect for the New Year.
We then had a quiet lunch at home...er, almost home...then quiet time while Erin went to a friend's house after church. We had a superb, phenomenal supper of beef tenderloin with very dear, very special friends. Many laughs and special memories made. (Erin even ate two servings of spinach and asparagus salad!)
I hope this is a forerunner of things to come...if not, I pray God gives me the strength to withstand and grow...thrive even no matter the year ahead.
Happy Sabbath to you.
