one big truth 
Courtney from Lil Light O Mine came up with the idea of sharing One Big Truth God has taught us with a before and after photo. Kelly, from Kelly's Korner, is also hosting a linky party. This all started yesterday but I couldn't think of my One Big Truth. And then this morning it hit me.

I started attending my church when I was 23. I got baptized, and became a member, there on Easter Sunday 1997, shortly before I turned 25. And then I started teaching Sunday School. I somehow ended up with the four year old class. And then I kept on teaching. I think I taught about four or five classes of four year olds so I got to know those families quite well. And a lot of those parents were around my age while I was still single and longing for marriage and a family.

I didn't get married until I was 36 and a lot of those families celebrated at our wedding with Dave and I. And they celebrated with us again when Sam and Rachel were born.

Last night I was at LOGOS, our church's mid-week program, and I am a table parent for the Junior Youth right now. That means I get to eat supper with them. Rachel is our Table Baby :) And I saw those kids I had taught when they were four, taking care of my daughter. And some of those other four year olds are currently our babysitters. And this morning my one big truth hit me.

And I am so thankful for it.


  1. OH, I love this! I'm glad that you all have such a great church!!!

  2. This is beautiful.... I'm still trying to build a church community at Seton, but slowly and surely, it is happening. :)

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog!
    I love this truth, I'm glad you have such a great church and that your children will grow up surrounded by so much love!

    I also just realized you're Canadian! I get so excited when I come across other bloggers from Canada!

  4. I love it! I have really missed a close church community in the years since getting married. I have tried to build one, but it never seems to work out and I always wonder why. I was so dependent on my church family all my life. I taught children'sunday school and helped with VBS. Sigh. I'm not giving up!

  5. that is really neat. i am so glad it hit you and you shared with all of us!

  6. I love this! Church was one of the hardest things for me when I was single, because it seemed so family oriented - but I'm thankful FOR my church family - and thankful you had a great one too!!

    1. Church was hard as a single person but paradoxically, it was also where I found a lot of support.


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
