Technically speaking, I do not have to blog today because Sundays are the free pass day of Lent. I'm not sure I understand this logic since Lent is supposed to honor the 40 days Jesus spent preparing to die for our sins, and I don't recall reading anywhere that Jesus took Sundays off. I'm really liking the blogging anyway. It makes me think about a wide variety of topics. I probably come up with 3 - 4 things to write about for every single thing that makes its way to this blog. My mind just works that way. Today's blog was an easy choice. Today is Sunday, the Lord's Day. I absolutely adore Sundays in the South. If you are not from the South, you may not understand why I had to differentiate that I love Sundays in the South and not just Sundays in general. If you are Southern though, you know that Sundays are about friends, family, rest, and most importantly, serving the Lord.
I attend a small church in Liberty. I love the people there. Church services begin at 10:30 a.m. I normally arrive around 10:25 a.m., so it is not like I have huge amounts of spare time to play with if I am running behind. This morning, I was doing just that. I forgot that it was daylight savings, so even though my clock said I had plenty of time, I did not. I rushed to get ready and leave the house only to realize that I was out of gas and needed to stop to refuel before church or risk not getting there. I also needed a bag for a wedding shower to be held after church which I meant to get yesterday and never did. I thought about not going at all since so many things were going wrong, but I went. I am so thankful because if I had stayed home, I would have missed a blessing. God was at RCBC this morning.
