Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

I was raised in the church, but have realized lately that I have become one of the Christmas Eve/Easter Sunday church going crowds. The last few times I've gone, I've felt an unexplainable presence that I believe must be the Holy Spirit moving and working in my heart. There is just so much out there that makes me want to run away from religion, Christianity, and sometimes even God. My friend was recently straight out asked for sex from a church youth leader who is in a serious relationship. That is sick. One of the main preachers at my parents' church doesn't believe woman have any place of leadership in the church. That disturbs me. I hear so many sad stories that happen in the church. I myself have had a horrible experience within the church as a young teenager. That turned me away. So what do I do? Isaiah 41:10-->He will uphold me. He will help me. He will strengthen me. He is with me. Always. I need to find a church, I think, a family, a refuge, a safe place, a sanctuary. I need to revive my relationship with Jesus. I miss Him, you know?

Tut, Tut, looks like Rain...

I'm sitting at work (where I do almost all of my blogging) looking out the window at a blustry day, as Pooh Bear might say...A few friends are driving up to Salina, Kansas, to drop off some construction materials and they've told me its snowing hard up there, so hopefully, they make it home safely! Life has been good lately, full and good. I have had an adjustment in my work schedule where I get to work 3 or 4 nights a week and usually only 1 or 2 weekend shifts instead of 4 or 5 shifts and 3 weekend shifts, which I greatly apperciate!! Things are good at home too, we are getting all setteled in to our new home on Villa View...the painting is coming along slowly but surely in the upstairs room. There is one little thing gone awry, however, and I'm not sure how little it actually is. I have a friend, a very dear friend, a very dear, funny, sarcastic friend, who is posting hurtful statuses on facebook. Okay, stupid of me to get my feelings hurt, right? But I consider this girl one of my very best friends and she has listed her "only" 3 three friends BY NAME on FB and mine definitely isn't included. I don't know what to do...because I don't want to seem silly about it and confront her, but I don't want her to think I haven't noticed, both the facebook thing and the lack of calling/visiting going on between us, because I have felt it. Any Advice? I would greatly apperciate it...And since she is a fellow, blogger, maybe she'll read this post and we can take care of things...until then, I hope she knows I miss her and will keep calling till she answers!
