My Friend

I'd like to introduce you to Claudia.  She is a dear girl who is in college.  I read a blog post that she wrote on Saturday and was greatly moved.  I asked Claudia if I could put it on my blog, so here is what she had to say.

Please visit Claudia at "After His Heart" and give her some encouragement.  She is a 2 year old Christian who loves the LORD.

"Amazing :)

God never ceases to amaze me. :) Last night I got to attend an appreciation event for volunteers at my church. Although it's impossible for me to attend regularly, I help out with the summer day camps - which is why I could go. It was a fabulous night! We had dessert, worship, and a message. It felt so much like church! Joshua Seller led worship, and a guest speaker spoke about the importance of being a slave for Christ.

I came home and started feeling rather down because I didn't have the opportunity to have such amazing experiences every week. So many Christians take going to church for granted - they view it as "just another day" or "another service." But I would give anything to be able to go to church on a Sunday - anything!

So, I decided to ask my mom if I could go to church tomorrow...I was terrified that she would yell or swear at me (her usual reaction), but she actually said yes!

I am going to church tomorrow for the first time in almost a year! God is so good! :)"

Bless her heart!

We do take church-going for granted--I decide the night before that I am going to be ready and happy and wanting to go--it is a heart choice, that's for sure--I am so glad for Claudia that her mom was receptive to her.
I pray that she will get many more opportunities to go and that her mom will see the blessed changes in her daughter and want to go also!
Janet, I am and will still pray for a home for you and your family--you know what??--you already have one--He is just lining up all the details for you, which you just can't see right now.
Hugs and love,
~me
P.S.
I will go say Hi! to Claudia :)
