I wish...

I wish there was church today.

I know that a lot of people make excuses why they don't need to go to church. And don't give me that stuff about "being the church", I know all that noise, I just want to sit in a building, hear (and sing along with) some praise and worship, hear a sermon, get a hug or two...

I know that it might seem wierd, but I love a good sermon.
I don't know if its because I have been sitting at the throne for the last week, praying about Phyllis (and her knees), I don't know if it's because I know there will be a praise report (no matter the outcome) from the doctor's appt. maybe it's that today, I just want to be surrounded by people who have the love of Christ, I am not really sure.
I just wish there was church today.
Acts 14:27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles

Wishing I was at church with you today. Hoping that Phyllis' knee pain is just plain old growing pains. She could have one more growth spurt left in her.

Margie...I'm hugging you via cyberspace! Can you feel it?! I could even sing a song or two as well! ;)

I hear you about church. I love being there...something about being with my "family. "

...I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God, I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood, Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod, I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God!

Now that's an oldie but goodie!!
