  5. I totally relate to the "recovering church addict thing"....
    It's a coming to terms with the way we were raised to worship,,,,for me, a lot of that was tradition that missed the heart of God's design for relationship. It's feeling guilty if I don't go to church every Sunday, or have my kids in AWANA, or sing in the choir. But, you wanted Cathy's thoughts on the matter....

    Cathy,
    I've enjoyed your view on life of late--the peace at Christmas, your honesty describing yourself. Thanks for sharing.

    It's a bit late, but I find peace in music and walking along the ocean this holiday season. My daughter sang in a choir performance last Sunday night at a community sing--all the choirs from various churches came together to perform. At the end, everyone got up and sang the Hallelujah Chorus. The music just soared, and as I watched, I was filled with this incredible sense of peace that no matter how bad the world seems, peace and faith and good will may, in fact, win out after all. This is a reminder to hope.
