Today is the first day of October. It is the start of the weather cooling down, leaves changing colors and yet the beginning of something new at the same time. During October, bloggers like to challenge themselves with writing a post a day for the whole month! There are many ways to do this.
One of those ways is with the Five-Minute Friday Crew. They love to take one word each Friday through the whole year. You get 5 minutes to write what comes to mind during that five minutes on that one word. For October, they have given us a list of words, one for each day of the month. While I love the five-minute idea, I want to take this as my guide for the day. Something to give me an idea on what to write about and tell you more about us over the month. While some busy days, it may just be what comes to mind!
Today’s word is Worship.
This word brings up so much for me. I grew up in a church, we went to church every Sunday, we went to church school every Wednesday. It was what I needed to learn about worship, and faith. But as I grew up, had children of my own, I wanted something more for them.
I wanted my kids to learn how to really worship the Lord. I didn’t want it to be a chore twice a week. I wanted it to be something fun. I wanted to find a church we loved. A church the kids loved. They are the future of the church, and I want them to be happy and loving it.
After moving to a new town, and trying to find that just right church where we could go to worship, we were looking. It came to us during our town fair. When the kids were handed cards for a local church’s Vacation Bible School. The price was right, and I had been eyeing up the church for a few months. We made the move and went for it!
After that week, both of my middle kids had given their hearts and lives to God. One week, that is all it took for them. To me, that meant we had found a good church! The kids have since loved going to Sunday School, mind you, they do have their days. They love to tell me what they are learning about God and they love to choose the Christian radio when we are in the car.
Moe Man was also welcomed in with open arms. Through our church, he has found what friends are, how they act and how they treat each other. Not only is he learning to worship God, but he is learning how God is present in his everyday life!
So, today, we are gathered with our friends and church family and spending some time worshiping the God we love! I hope that you have your church family and friends that you can spend today with as well!
