I was GLAD....

I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go into the house of the LORD.
Psalm 122:1

So I know that those of you that are on my mass text messaging list, you probabley get tired of me sending this text with Psalm 122:1, out, Sunday after Sunday. BUT there is a reason why I do it!!! It's simply BECAUSE...
Seriousley, I do! Going to church is just about the best thing that ever happened to me and my family. It was at church that my mom found God. If it wasn't for God I have NO idea just how messed up my family would be!!! I mean come on, just look at us WITH GOD!!! ;)
Growing up, there were days in my life that it seemed like the ONLY thing I had to look forward to was CHURCH! I told my girls several weeks ago in class that I grew up in a home where only one of my parent's lived for God. They all looked me shocked!!! Eyes wide, some of them even dropped their jaws...(I guess it's just hard to believe in my total perfection that I have ANYTHING other than a angelic background. :)

So I went on to explain to them that I know what it's like to not have peace in your home. To go to bed scared. To hear screaming and yelling, things being thrown and banged, doors slamming. They all nodded their heads...knowing...but I went on to explain to them that in the middle of all that they can focus on God. To put all their heart into loving church. I told them that I could remember being at church, and knowing that things were totally a mess in my home, but I knew that I had Jesus.
I loved church then and I love church now and I don't ever want to forget how important church is. I love singing and worshipping God and just feeling God's presence. How totally amaZing is it that we can FEEL God's presence in a church service?!?!? SOOOOOOOOO TOTALLY ROCKIN COOL
AND if you happen to be lookin for a church...

Here is a REALLY awesome one that you can find more about HERE
