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 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!


  1. I hope your little guy is feeling better. I tagged you at

  2. I hope Jake is feeling better!

  3. i take it forgranted too.
    poor little guy. hope he is feeling better soon!!

  4. Hoping you made it to 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."
