My friend Robbie and I went ice skating last night and we had a lot of fun. Some friends were going to go with us, but they did too much walking at the mall and couldn’t handle the skates on their feet, so they took off to go play board games. But Robbie and I had the awesomest time. I’ve known Robbie for a while now and I’ve always wanted to become better friends with him, and last night, I really felt like I was able to do that because we got a lot of conversation in and… Yeah, it was great. Of course, I was bummed that my friends ditched us, but life moves on, and relationships continue.
Tomorrow, I am heading off to the church that I have not been to regularly in about 1.5 years and it gives me a very strange feeling. I am going to be seeing a lot of the people that I grew up with and it is going to bring back so many memories, good and bad. I hope all goes well. I am going to miss my church though. I love my church. I love my Pastor– the nicest man and one of the funniest. I love my church’s food. I love going to church in a movie theater… It just feel so real!
Robbie and I spoke of a close friend who we both care for deeply. He was on the right path as a Christian until he got bored of the same old message being told at his church and he’d had enough. If he only came to my church, if he would only hear my Pastor speak, and listen to the band, I know he’d love it. I may be biased, but this I know for a fact! I have invited so many people to that church and they have come and they have never stopped going. I know that’s what Kellen would do if he just came! It’s so frustrating to watch a friend not grow closer to God, not learn more in Christ. It saddens me so much. Because I really love my friends.
