I hope that as I talk about this that it makes some sense. After Dh came home from Iraq we started missing church every now and then due to the fact that we just wanted to spend time together as a family. I know that is no excuse, but what can I say.
Well, middle to late last year I started to really have back troubles and still do. I cannot sit for very long, and if I do I have trouble getting up. So needless to say that made us miss a lot of church too. Dh would not go without me as he was afraid that I might fall and not be able to get up. Trust me I have had times when I could not even move without his help. Little by little I felt myselp slipping. Not in my faith, but in my beliefs in our church. Things are starting to happen that we no longer agree with. We have prayed that the Lord would lead us to another church, but we have not found one yet. We do feel that the Lord does not particulary want us in this church though. We are so confused right now. I pray that the Lord leads us soon. I feel bad for not being able to attend church, but at the same time I feel like I am not being true to my beliefs if I go somewhere that goes against us. We have heard of a church that is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from us. We know that Pastor and know how he belives and teaches and it is what we want, but oh for me to be able to make the ride.
It also hasn’t helped the situation that Dh’s work has changed his days off and now he has to work on Sundays. I know the Lord has a plan. I just have to be patient and wait for it.
