I never discuss religion with many people because I truly believe that everyone is entitled to believe in what they want. Live and let live that is how I truly feel.
I am a believer, I BELIEVE in GOD. I am Catholic, but not practicing like many. It's been a while since I have attended mass. Never found a good church to attend in MO and my husband is not a believer so I have put going to mass on the back burner.
My faith is still very strong though.
Occasionally, I attend prayer group with my cousin. It makes me feel great to pray and thank him for all that he has blessed me with. The other day as we stayed a bit behind to talk to Father EKPO he said something to me that has stayed on my mind.
He said since the first time he saw me he knew I WAS FAITHFUL. He knew it from the first time he met me. I guess it kind of bothers me in a strange way because if he only knew that I have not attended mass in a very long time. Is it guilt?
I was told long ago that I am not a practicing Catholic and to be honest I believe I am not if I don't attend mass, BUT I also feel that just because I don't attend mass that does not mean that my FAITH IN GOD is any lesser.
I don't know why things happen the way they do or for what reason. Why do things happen the way they do????? Why? I guess we just need to have FAITH.
So with that I leave you. I probably will never write about religion again because it's so personal, but wanted to share what was on my mind..... wanted to share another bit of me that I usually keep very private.
I hope you don't mind.
