The past week or so have been full of particularly great days for me. Don't get me wrong I am grateful for every day that I have but I'm always excited for those days that seem to go without flaw or confrontation and turn out to be really productive. I've been filling my planner with to do list items and crossing them off. I would love to say I've gotten everything accomplished already but it's only Wednesday so I've got some time!
I'm on Day 3 of making running a part of my everyday life and so far, so good. For me, everything is just a matter of saying I'm going to do it and then doing it. I've written in my planner that I'm running a mile Monday-Thursday (can't do Friday this week because we will be driving to MS) and I hate to leave things undone for the day so I'm anxious to get my mile in and cross it off my list. I find myself drinking more water (something I'm not good at doing) and getting that good kind of tired feeling before bedtime when I make exercise a part of my daily routine.
I moved here in October 2009 and Allan moved in December after graduation. Between weekends at our parents, football season (where it seems like we went to more games than we thought we would), and other trips on weekends to see friends it never felt like the right time to find a church home for me. We already knew which location we would be attending for Allan's church and I'll be the first to admit I wasn't very proactive in finding a church home that is in line with my Christian beliefs and one where we can both feel comfortable attending. Most of this was due to my love for the church I attended in Auburn and the fact that I was still able to watch online even though I couldn't be there in person. I loved the Pastor and how he conveyed God's word through his messages so I found myself comparing other churches to this one. We visited one church last year but immediately didn't feel like it was a good fit. The church we attended this past Sunday is one that several of our neighbors attend and we both enjoyed the music and the message and will be attending again. There are one or two other churches that I would like to visit. I pray that we are able to find the right church for us.
Any advice on finding a church home?
