You know... I have to say I'm so disappointed in myself for not keeping up with my Facebook page for this blog. That's all I have to say a about that. ;p That was just in my head.
So, it's Sunday, and I'm curious as to how many of you go to church. I know some of you well enough to know your beliefs, but not all of you.
Lately, three different people (well, 2, and then I met a woman yesterday during that walk who was doing the same thing) have been pushing us to attend church with them. It's strange really, because neither the wife nor I, have ever had this type of situation pop up before. Not like this, where it's all at the same time. I'm sure from past blogs you all know I do believe in the existence of God, and sometimes I'll blog about what I feel has been a divine intervention. That being said, some things about the followers in general, really bother me. Take for instance the people who post pictures of someone being baptized... the comments are always... "Amen!" Or, "That child has been saved!" I don't know... that to me is overkill. It's like when you're just entering a new relationship and the other person is all over you with flowers, and love poems, and, and... it's just bleh! Too much. It kind of pushes me away from it, because while I do believe, and I do pray (oh believe me, do I ever pray, sometimes even in the traditional, on my knees way), I don't do... that? I don't know... it's hard to explain.
Anyway, I'm thinking even though little things push me away from the followers, we should probably find a church. I told the wife yesterday, that maybe God wants us somewhere, since so many people are pushing us to go. The problem is those panic attacks. They started many years ago, in church. SO I stopped going because back then, that was really the only place I would get them. I sure did love my church though. Everyone was so down to earth, and the pastor was witty and humorous. I loved her sermons, because they were stories told to help us find our way through this crazy world today. If we lived closer, I would try to go again.
Today though, will be spent doing other things...
I need to work out. I wanted to go to the Home and Garden show, but the wife invited people over, so I guess I can't do that. I was going to volunteer with a dog rescue group. I mean, I could go ahead and do that. I don't know... all I know for sure is that I need a workout. Yesterday, we went to the horse races. It was fun... my friend's band was playing there, before Mr. Ted Nugent took the stage. I don't even know if I'm spelling his name right. We left before he made his appearance, but not before I consumed junk food. Not a lot, but enough to make me mad at myself. Before that I participated in a small walk event to raise money for our local pregnancy center. That was fun, but my friend ended up having to work the event, so I walked with people I had just met. They were slow walkers! It took an hour for 2 miles. Had I been alone, I would have finished way before that because running would have been involved. Oh well... they were nice, and I came home and worked out afterward!! A little obsessive I suppose, but I'm starting to feel a difference, and even see a tiny difference, so I'm way motivated, even though my allergy meds are bringing me down.
Okay... time for me to get going. People will soon be arriving, and I need to choose between Home and Garden or the boat with the wife and the friends.
