Received such a blessing today at church. A very touching sermon, inspirational music, exceptionally nice people, as always. Family w/ me (one son, the other out of town and hubby missed due to outages caused by the strong winds), and a special friend came today. A lot of people think its not necessary to attend church....but there is such a "missed blessing" when you don't. I have both "attended" and "missed" and I have to tell you, when I miss it's like eating the cake w/o the icing, or like someone putting art materials in front of me but not letting me play with them. I don't want to miss any blessings! It jumpstarts my week, and usually by the end of the week, I need another dose. Looking forward to this coming week and in celebrating Easter and the meaning of Easter....He is risen!!!
