I'm actually going to church tomorrow. I can't remember if the mass starts at 9 or 10... It takes quite a bit over an hour to get there, and I'd like some leeway time anyway, so I'll leave around 7am. I'm going to ask if I can head the relief nursery, like my mom used to. Pretty much what I'd be doing is watching over young children of churchgoers if they don't do well in a church, or they simply only want to go to Liturgy of the Word (which is the gospel for children) Well, why all of a sudden? Why start going there when I haven't been to church in months? Well it was odd, had an impulse to walk there, out of the blue, Friday evening. I didn't expect anyone to be there. It was stations of the cross night, so the Father was there. AND he recognized me. @______@ which, surprised me, since my hair is a lot different since I last came to the church, which was.... jeez... a year ago. It was awkward, I think he could tell I don't practice anymore. But, it was just... purposeful. Like I was meant to be there. I walked all the way there and all the way home, with little problems. It was...2.6 miles one way. So over 5 miles overall. -looking at church website- ok, mass is at 10:30. Lessee... 20 minutes per mile (approx), and considering the terrain is rough (over hills and stuff) so add time... so yeah, a bit over an hour. hmm. I'll leave around 9 then. But yeah, going there got me thinking, and it brought me to thinking of the relief nursery that my mom used to run. As far as I'm aware, no one has been running it. If I could, hell, that'd get me volunteer hours, but also something to do, something that I feel is USEFUL. Taking care of kids is useful. And it'll be good for me, I do miss hanging out with kids when I volunteered for the elementary school. -laughs- I may be twice their age, but I just can let go, goof off with kids, just for once... be silly. Not have to make sense. Not have to worry about explanations, or complicated things. -chuckles- probably why kids love me, I don't mind being silly with them XDDDDD It'll be fun.... IF I can do it, if Father would let me, if anyone would show up. XP I have a feeling I can though. -smiles- For once I'm actually OPTIMISTIC about this, which is a change -is a pessimist by nature- It'll be nice. It's my home church, so a part of me will always be there. But... -ear twitches, looks a little distant- it's a bit different though. And I'll never look at it the same, either. Just as my big sis never will. I mean, I share similar sentiments as her. She had said, "If there was a God, he wouldn't have let me be molested in his own house." I don't think exactly that, but to me, there'll always be a bit of a dark connotation to church. Hence why I haven't gone in....a long time. It's just not the same as it was when I was young, naive, innocent. And yet I'm WILLINGLY returning. Well, I remember what it was like for me and my big sis. The nursery was safe for us, and we helped out with the younger kids. So, that part is still safe and untainted to me. Hence why it's okay for me to be there. But main church? And mass? -shakes head- naw. My beliefs don't correlate with Catholicism much anymore. But I want to help the kids, and teach them Catholicism, as it is a good faith. -looks at how long this journal is, decides to shut up and stop ranting, and get some sleep- well, it'll be fun.
