So as I went to church last night I went in with a different frame of mind. Hard to explain it.
I have a few people I joke around with when I first walk in and then I decided to visit folks I had not talked to much. So I visited with a woman who shares the love of photography and she was telling me about her new online mission field. I did not even know something like that existed and she is a missionary to people in Nigeria. I visited with some new people that come 35 minutes to our Thursday night church that is in a old restaurant because they feel comfortable here and accepted one has a Mohawk and a tail type hair cut God Loves everyone and that is one of out motto's at Seeds of hope. I had a great conversation with a 18 year old boy with Down syndrome He is so sweet and has some great goals for his life. We have a small meal and I looked through the room and I saw him sitting at a booth by himself. Well that is just no good in my book so my friend went and got him and he came and slid into our booth with 7 ladies all mommas and had a great time. He left with a Happy heart and wants to come back next week. THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT!! When people come to a place and feel comfortable and accepted then their hearts open to the Lord to grow and invite him in and start their walk with God a new walk a new beginning. I started mine 22 years ago. I was a chaperon at a youth group convention in Portland Oregon and there I was on the floor with the kids on my knees asking the Lord Jesus in my heart and my life has not been the same since!!!
