Spiritual frontline

Since about a week before Charlie was born I have had one heck of a time getting my head together to spend any kind of time focusing on talking to or hearing from God. I'd attribute that to a few things : tiredness, lack of routine, believing lies, and having little connection to church I name a few. Today we finally got back to church for the first time in a while. Our church has a section in the back for people with babies. Charlie did great and slept the entire service! Travis and I did not do so great. We talked most of the service. We have no attention span hen we are that far back. We'll try again next week!

The other thing that has helped me to not totally lose touch is the book and the app - One Thousand Gifts. The book and the vision behind it all are written to help people remember all the gifts of grace that God has given us. The challenge is to make a list of 1000 gifts, big and small, that God has brought into your life. I've been using the app to record at least 3 gifts a day and its been a (small) way that I can spend a couple moments a day connecting to God and thanking Him.

This week I start back to work with Escape, we are going to go to connection group and I hope to spend a little time reading through 1 Thessalonians. Baby steps!
