I must be loved or something

Am sure i mentioned how i started to go for Church in the Home very close to my house on Sunday evenings. Ok i must confess i only went once, but it was wonderful. There were just 3 nice families attending, all upward mobile professionals, with one common interest GOD! i made them 3 and a half seeing we agreed that i would attend alone (i'll blog about this church issue when it becomes perfect). It was really nice i don't know why i never went again after the first time. I guess its because i find myself doing everything on Sunday. I have been praying for orderliness and time management.


OK to my uttermost embarrassment/ surprise on Sunday evening i was on my way to go get some stuff (at 7pm, what was i doing all weekend) then i saw a whole bunch of cars and people coming into my gate. I just said hi and kept walking. Then i hear SISTER A KEL!!!, guess who - the whole bunch all three families and their kids coming to my humble abode to see me, not good that i haven't been attending, but i felt so important, so loved, so missed, so everything, maybe i have found that bunch of correct friends i have been searching for. OMG it was awesome. I couldn't believe it. Even DH must have noticed cos he was just running around making sure they were comfortable, he even brought out our nice bottle of wine we had been saving for i wonder what!


We sat, chatted and generally talked about the word of God, they prayed, they blessed us and then they left. And they liked our house or so they said! My DH sat in all through, carrying the kids playing and being very social, i was dazed, normally he would either go away to get what i wanted to get earlier, or just sit there and obviously not be interested. Is this a sign of greater things to come. I kept remembering the very words that have encouraged and kept me going " have i not told you a Kel, that i will make all things beautiful in my own time".


Progress in my driving

Yesterday for the first time i was allowed to drive (for 2 minutes from the road to our house) "my" car that they have not even let me touch. I have been cruising in one old banger like that trying to become a master of the road. They claimed that one other brand new car which i am referring to as "my" car was bought for me. Am trying still haven't used gear 3 though. This weekend i'm going to try drive some distance. Fingers are crossed that i look back at this soon and laugh.

Ain't that sueet, small churches are good for that. Remember Cheers the sitcom, "you wanna go to where everybody knows your name"

Keep it up A kel. You go soon become 'Road master' very soon. BTW, an autodrive would have been much more easier, dont you think?

lol @ DH. Make sure u invite him when next u r going to church. The smaller churches are keen on follow-up but once they get bigger, noone bothers about anyone. It's a sad fact....
