Sunday Morning Coming Down

For some reason I think of the name of the Kris Kristofferson's song on Sunday morning. I know he was probably coming down off a drunk, but for some reason the name always comes to mind.

For me, Sunday morning is a time to replenish my soul. I go to worship, where I get to see many people that I don't normally see during the week. They are an encouragement to me. There are usually about 25 ladies in the class I go to, and then about 500 in worship. Growing up, I just didn't know there were that many Christians in the world. I live in a small town, and when I was a kid, there was about 60 in our congregation. Most of them women. Where I go now, there are as many men as women.

I love seeing families together in worship. My dad never went with us, and I married a man who went with me while we were dating, but quit soon after we married. So not only did my mother raise her children in church by herself, I did as well.

I don't pretend to be the strong dedicated person I should be, but I can't imagine my life without my church family. I have family. Not a lot nearby, but I have a few cousins, and my children and their families. I have friends, and I think, quite a few of those that I love dearly. But I feel so close to my church family.

So, I'm off to worship this morning. I'll get a warm hug from Mr. Randy, talk to whoever is being a greeter this morning, and as I make my way to class, I'll get to visit with others I know there.

Are you going to worship this morning? Tell me your favorite thing about your worship service.

Have a wonderful Sunday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.

I haven't been to worship in a long while. I get tired of all the "clicks". I don't go to church to be judged. I feel I can worship just as well, at home.
As far as my favorite, I loved our preacher. He has a way of making you understand the bible.

Hope you had a good day at Church and I'm glad you have them too.
I've had a nice Sunday, calm and quiet and I've got a good book I'm finally in to. Haven't been able to concentrate on reading for sometime but this one has me!

Church is always a source of great refreshment for me. It saddens me that my husband doesn't join us, (He did for many years, but I guess he outgrew that phase of life?) but I know that it is important that my children participate in various church activities and I want them to understand the value in marrying a Godly man.
There are serveral elderly ladies that I sit with at church and genuinely enjoy hearing their perspectives on subjects and their stories.
