Sunday is the best day of the week to me; In the fall you have football all day, with the NFL package extremely good day, men's league basketball with the fellas, brunch at Pane followed by that power nap you need after Pane, and most importantly CHURCH!!! Don't be shocked I did say church, I try to be in church as many Sundays as possible. I am a person that wears their religion on their sleeve but I do believe in God strongly and know who to lean on when things are looking gloomy.
As a child I stayed in church, my grandmother use to clean the church, and being 6 years old I had no choice but to be there with her. I was there almost everynight attending choir practice, deacon board meetings, usher board, and other numerous events. Then when the events were completed I got the privilage of changing toilet paper rolls, buff floors, clean windows, vaccum the floors(can you say child abuse) and stealing food out of the kitchen. Sunday was the best though, started early with Sunday School, I am not complaining though because that was my foundation of my spritual life, it set the tone. When I moved from my grandmother to Cincinnati to live with my mother we use to go to church every sunday, but that was for a different reason, we needed to send some prayers up because we were struggling as I look back on that time of my life. I will never forget how my mom would cry as she raised her hands to god while she prayed. I didn't understand it and would say why you crying mom? Then later after church when her race horse would win at the track I understood that she was praying for that horse to win so that we could have money to get food for the week. When I became a yound adult church became the place to meet pretty young ladies, if you went to Fort Myers Chapel you will know what I mean, but it was the place that gave me strength. I can say that I played so much better on them Tuesday night basketball games after going to church on Sunday.
The song When Sunday Comes has a line that says "When sunday comes, my trouble gone as soon as it gets here, I 'll have a new song". This is so true for me because no matter what I am going through during the week when I leave church on sunday I feel like a new man. I know that everything is going to be okay, all my worry have been taken from me and my mind is clear. I use to hear old people say "why not try the Lord"....I use to think that was some holy roller saying to get me to join their church but in my adult life I have really come to believe that. I have experience so much in my adult life that would have crippled most but my faith and love of the Lord has kept me going. My advice to you, is when things are not going the way you want them to in your life stop for a minute and have a talk with God. I can make you a promise if you believe and trust in the Lord he will open up so many doors for you; even the doors you didn't dream of will be opened he is that AMAZING. I can't wait until Sunday comes....
Welcome To My Thoughts!!!!
Hey everyone welcome to On The Chaise Lounge. This is my blog where I will be writing my thoughts on everyday life as I see it. They say the best therapy is writing down your thoughts and getting them out in the world so that is what I am going to do here, and its much cheaper than paying someone to hear my thoughts when I have tons of friends that can chime in and let me know what they think. This is going to be free flowing no real theme, just real random stuff from relationships, to sports, tv shows, the topics are endless. I want to welcome you again and hopefully through you, my followers, so I can get some understanding about the world and hopefully solve my issues.
