Weird Without Church

After Jake's 3rd night of misery, I knew this morning I needed to make the trip to Urgent Care. He just looked miserable...oh, how it just rips my heart out! It seems my children prefer to get really sick during non-office hours...I am really thankful for Urgent Care! He's a trooper, and it ended up just being an ear infection, which was really the best of all the options it could be...because it's not contagious and medicine can fix it! *sigh of relief*
After Urgent Care, Jake & I had 40 minutes before the pharmacy opened, so we headed to Wal-Mart to get a few groceries. It was the strangest feeling, being in Wal-Mart, when I should have been in Sunday School! We ended up getting home about 20 minutes into the church service, so Jake and I snuck into our house so he could go back to sleep. We weren't actually sneaking...but when you live next to the church, and everyone is there but you...it feels like sneaking :)
Sundays are never the same for me, when I miss church. It's hard to explain...I think it's because I so need it...that time, set apart, to worship Him, with other believers. On days like today, I realize how often I take it for granted. I'm hoping that after a dose of antibiotics and some rest, we will be able to catch the evening service!

  5. I know what you mean about missing church. Sometimes that religious part of me comes out and then GUILT! But, I get over it. It is awfully weird though when I'm not there on Sunday.

  6. Glad your boy is okay. I am like you, I absolutely love and need church. There's something about corporate worship...I just love to praise God with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I agree with David when he said, "I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord."
