Unfortunately, we hadn’t been to Church for just little over a month. Just so busy. Lots of things that took up our time and energy the past few weeks. We finally went to mass on Sunday. Even though there wasn’t any services for the kids such as Sunday school and babysitting (volunteers needed a break) but we made it through it. I was surely thankful that we went. It was a needed boost. The boys were actually better behaved than we expected them to be. We plan to go to it as much as possible over the summer. It’s not always possible, but we can find time to be with the Lord. We should anyway. Sunday is to be a day of rest. God made the earth, the sun, the moon, people and things within 6 days and he chose Sunday to rest.
I felt like I was home again with the Lord on Sunday. I always have felt that every time since we started going to Church as a family late last year. I didn’t always like going to Church growing up but I feel differently now. I relate to it much better and have a better respect and love for it.
I understand what the Church means. It’s a home. We are all living in the body of Christ. The church is to be a safe and beautiful and restful place. To celebrate Christ and to glorify God. We are all God’s children.
The Church is home to many sacraments. It’s where we start life with baptism and beyond. It definitely has a special relationship with marriage as well. We are fed with more wisdom from the Bible or the Word. To encourage us, to live life, and etc. We praise and give thanks to the Lord in a reasonable hour on a Sunday during Mass. It’s a celebration. It’s a fellowship with thousands of people who want to be near Jesus and God. It’s a special time where we step away from the mainstream society and evolve our Christian relationship. It’s one BIG family.
The more we are with the Church and stay there, and it also comes with you, in your heart, body and soul as well as you journey with life. As long you keep yourself open to God and let him in. The Church is significant in our walk with the King which is God.
