Missing Church on Sunday

Indian Summer I

I love Sunday mornings. I love that we are all dressed up and ready to go worship the Lord together at Church. I love the sight of my family walking into the building, holding Bibles.

But, sadly, today I must stay at home. I have been worn out this past week and I have to miss church.

Since I will be at home. . .

1. I will look through my hymn book and read the songs.
2. I will watch Charles Stanley on Inspiration television.
3. I will do only minimal housework.
4. I will read from the Psalms - perhaps all of chapter 119.

Very often, Grandpa and Nana (who live with us) have health issues and aren't able to attend church. On those days, I can hear the sound of an old country preacher coming up through the house. Grandpa has cassette tapes of sermons from the old south, including the sermons of his late brother, who was an amazing preacher.

I also hear old gospel music throughout the house. Those are the happiest, most comforting sounds of all. Hearing Preachers and Gospel music, to me, are the sounds of home - whether it is Sunday or any other day of the week.

When you must stay home from church, what do you do instead?

Why should I be surprised? I had to miss church this morning,for health reasons,too. My husband went, and I asked him to sing for me (something we both love). So I wandered, lost for a minute, and decided to check my email to see if my son and daughter-in-law were coming, and bringing our granddaughter later today.
I was going to save your email for later, but clicked on, and there you were-Missing church on Sunday! Thank you Lord, for the reminder that sometimes, we do need to be still and get that extra rest; and to be truly alone with You; and to see that you do see each one of us, and meet us in our need.
Thank you, Mrs. White for always being honest. I have only recently discovered your blog, and it already encourages me so. I am preparing to begin my own, and seeking God's direction for it. May He richly bless you for your obedience.
