Overtime we’ve found it harder to get us ready in the morning and instead have opted to stay home because it’s easier and we’re just too tired at the end of the week to fight over one more thing with the boys.
So now our attendance has become sporadic over the last few months and I find it affecting my spirituality. I don’t feel as connected and find that I’m not focused on God enough during the week. This is something I definitely want to change, but I haven’t figured out how to help my kids enjoy a large room of people with loud noises and long periods of sitting still. The easy solution would be to have them join the children’s programs, but they don’t want to be there either because it’s a small room with lots of kids and again, noise.
Sometimes it’s the small challenges that wear on you over time.
I miss my church.
