It’s been almost 4 years since I last visited a church and hear mass. It all started with a red car that our little girl, who was 5 years old then, saw parked at the altar just infront of the holy scrament. Can you imagine that, a car at the altar?! The car is the grand prize to a raffle that the parish was running for their fund raising. What a shame! Since then the whole family didn’t go to church but that does not mean we have lost our faith. We still pray, ask for forgiveness and thank Him for every blessing we receive. But seems like something is missing. I felt that I am lost spiritually until last November when a neighbor asked me to join their bible study. It was an answered prayer. I was praying not for a church but for someone to open my heart and lead me to God’s words and devotion.
I am attending the bible study every Thursday and it feels good. My heart, ears and eyes were opened once again to the truth… “Man does not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). For that, I would like to thank Lanie, my neighbor and friend, for my regained spirituality.
