I was up since 5am and started to fall asleep and had to vomit so I decided to stay home. then something got me out of bed and i jumped and put my coat on. adrain walked me to church. I went in and my nerves were so bad I had to pee. This lady took me down stairs and coming up I found the perfect seat in the back. but,not all the way to the back. I could not believe the feeling that came over me in church. It was wonderful. I listened to the beautiful woman sing and the praise dancers dance. I got up and was enjoying the service. I even picked up the book and started singing too. The man next to me shook my hand to welcome me and that was nice. After a few songs and two collections. the preacher asked us to come to the alter fro prayer. I was scared but something got me up and I went and neeled down. I remembered my friend bj said when you pray for people call them by name. so everyone on mylot that I could remember was in my prayer. I prayed so hard I almost bust out crying. then I went back to my seat and remembered the lamb,mike and alberello,and then had to say a prayer for them. It was such a wonderful day for me. I had all mylot girls with me and it felt great. I did not forget any of you. I am going to spend the day with my mother who is still sick. so I will chat with you later. take care.

That is great that you had a chance to go to church and it has helped you out. I have to get back into getting to church. Things have been so busy and hectic around here that I have not had time. I had not been feeling all that great and have not been getting much sleep. It has been so cold out that it has been hard for me to get around and to want to do things. Yesterday I took a jewelry class and loved it. On the 21st I will be taking a sewing class and another one on January 31st. I hope things continue to get better for you.

My church is having a zumba class but is is too expensive for me right now. I want to do it at home if I could get the time.

Prayer is wonderful, thanks for thinking of all of us. It is kind of like family. I hope you remembered to pray for your mother as well. You do not have to be in church to pray but it is a wonderful place to get focused on your prayers. Have a great evening, Sharon.

I prayed for everyone in my life. not just my friends here but in life as well. My mother was at the top of that list.

I'm so happy that you felt so good when you were in church today. The music and the sermon can be so uplifting especially if you are not feeling 100 percent well. There have been many times that I would end up crying in church, the music will always bring me to tears. I'm so sorry to hear that your mom is still sick. I will definitely add her to my praylist as you and your family are on it already. Be strong, be happy and stay safe. God Bless!

It's great that you had a good day and that you spent the day with your mother. I hope that she will start to feel better as well. It can be tough seeing our parent/s sick.We often want to take any pain or discomfort they are feeling away. So it is very hard when we aren't able to do that.

Sorry to hear that your mother is getting worse. That is an awful thing to have to go through. I hope that you and your family will spend as much time as you can with her. Life really is so precious and we never know when something could happen to us or our loved ones. I'm sure that she appreciates you being there to help.

Well, thanks to you, especially for praying for me and for all of us, members of Mylot! Going to church, pray, and sing, it's always a wonderful thing. Thou did it, despite your health condition was not optimal, this is a point in your favor, dear friend! You must know that I'm going to Mass every Saturday at 18.00 and my task during the religious function is to read the responsorial psalms. Take care, you too! You italian friend Alessandro (alberello) !!

Sounds like you had a real good time at church Gifts. That's nice. I do miss the one church that I went to in Minnesota, and I'll probably never find another church like that one again. That's okay, I do what I need to do at home. Could be your new church home. I take it you will be going back next week? I hope your Mom is feeling better soon.

You definitely were called to go to church on Sunday and it really does sound like it was a great experience for you and for that I have to say that I am thankful because I really do feel like you need to have something positive in your life like this church community that you've just visited. I also have to say that I agree with you that it is more effective when you are praying for someone that you pray for them by name.
