Why Go to Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.

"I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."

This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor.

It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

"I've been married for 30 years now.. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.
Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!"

Good Bye Old House


This week is our final week in the house we bought when moving to Huntsville. We've made so many memories in this house and have actually lived in it longer than any house Jared & I have lived in during our married life. I've been kinda sentimental about leaving this house because we started our own "Adventure with Kati Ann" here. Jared & I have continued to grow as a couple and parents here. Not to mention, I broke my arm in this house and for this house!
I'm grateful for our sweet little house where we introduced Kati Ann to our family and transformed this house into our home.
So, "Thank you, Old House! We've enjoyed your comfort and we'll cherish the memories we made with you"
