Well, I do have to admit that I am glad I went to church today, Missed my friends and fellowship and really enjoyed the sermon one of our members did for this week. Even had potluck today and I enjoyed the food and the time of chat with other members. The sermon touched my heart the most because it was about “true repentance” and it seemed to hit home with last Sunday’s sermon on “are you jealous” at Bethel Baptist Church. It was just nice to be back home at my SDA home church! I missed out on a lot since November, which was my LAST visit to the SDA church. I am a little embarrassed because I did not realize that I had not been to my SDA church all that time. Friends had welcomed me back and asked how I was doing and how was school. I was glad to announce that school was finished and I was not going to lie to anyone about how my emotional life was so I told everyone the truth that depression and anxiety did hit me pretty hard during my absence. A member, a sweet lady, said that school can really stress a person out, and I believe that is so very true. I was just HAPPY to be back at church today. Even my friend PK, who picked me up for church this morning, even asked me if I wanted to do the Scripture reading for next Saturday Sabbath, and I told her I would be happy to do so — another good reason to return to church next week. Way to go, PK! Thanks!
I just wanted to say hello and good morning to all my friends here at DD and to everyone else who reads my diary from time to time. I am actually awake this morning and got up when my alarm went off and got dressed and ready for church for once in a long time. My ride will be here in a few minutes so I better get ready and head down shortly. I know I have been only awake for an hour and I did not get to sleep until 1 a.m. but I had to listen to music before going to sleep after I had gotten off here earlier this morning when I should have been in bed. Anyway, I will be back later. Gotta run! Ride is going to be here shortly…already said that, lol. Good bye for now.
