Read The Sundays Part I and Part II

Yea though it be a Herculean feat to walk through the valley of getting ready for and getting through church every Sunday morning, God is with me. It can be hard, very hard some weeks, but it is worth the work, no, vital to continue in the work.

Yes, I blow it 5 or 6 times every Sunday and find it difficult to not just throw in the towel. Sometimes I have said to myself, “Well there’s no point in going now, you don’t deserve to even darken the door!” and “Well! If they want to make it this hard to go we’ll just stay home!”

I already posted about our celebration of the Feast of Pentecost but June brought many more commemorations and feasts as well. Of course I didn’t remember all of them and what I did do was so simple they hardly warranted an entire post. So here are snips of some of the church days we marked during June.

June 11: Trinity Sunday. White. The girls were able to wear their white Easter dresses again for this day. I loved that we got to eat Chocolate Cake at church that morning! It was so good and all over 2 of the girls white dresses surprise surprise. But nothing a bunch of spray fabric cleaner can’t fix.
