It was my first time having experienced Advent and I was excited to go to the church for some time with God. Mostly my time with God is always about being thankful. I pray to God all the time about being thankful for everything he has blessed me with. I can’t imagine being any luckier than I am…I have so many amazing things that make my life full and happy. I wonder if other people recognize the precious gifts God has given them. Do we receive them for being good people or is it just luck? Do things happen for a reason or do we have any control over them? Probably a little of both. I think we consciously have a choice to be good people however God has his plan for each of us.
Time at Advent was amazing. I walked into the quiet beautiful glowing church and immediately felt welcome. I made my way up the stairs and saw Amy and went over to sit by her. I took a deep breath and then bowed my head and immediately followed a river of tears that welled up in my eyes ran over my nose, past my lips and onto the floor. The Holy Spirit was present, with me and wanted me to know so. I found comfort in the tears and knew that I was safe expressing my hearts thoughts. I prayed about being so thankful, I prayed about our new friends, I prayed thanks for His sacrifice, I prayed and spoke and listened in the beautiful calm of the morning.
