I went to a Bible study this evening. And I walked away feeling better than I have in a very long time.

I couldn't be around large crowds for months because of my surgery. It had compromised my immune system. But I am better now and I am able to be around people again.

The ladies at the meeting are very kind women. Most are broken people, like me, trying to find their way to be whole again. Through God.

Two of the ladies sang a song this evening about how when we get to Heaven there will be no more pain no more sadness. I sat with my eyes closed and felt God's peace.

Since I was away from Church for so long I noticed things creeping in that I didn't like. I want to try to my best to be what God wants me to be.

It is hard at times , because sometimes I am drawn to things that aren't good. But I have a strong desire to serve God and turn away from all that does not please Him.

I feel like this Bible study is going to help me get back to the place I use to be.

Sending you all love...Nita

Sweet Nita,

It sounds like this Bible study is just what the doctor ordered for you. We are all broken people in one way or another so we truly are in good company sweetie. I am so happy that you found much peace in this place and I know you are moving forward in being all that God wants you to be. I love you. Have a wonderful weekend.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I am so pleased to hear you are going to bible study. I am sure it will help you feel the way you used to feel about God and Church. There have been so many things that have happened to you in the past that were tragic but God has always been there Nita. He always will be there for you. Reach out, he is there.

God Bless You
