Their Sunday morning practice became music to my ears. I envied anyone appearing to be so happy. I was happy, but they seemed to have something I didn’t. I attended church off and on, but watching and listening to them each Sunday morning instilled a desire inside my heart to seek that kind of happiness.
Eventually, my husband and I attended a class at a church about the joys and responsibilities of church membership. On the next Palm Sunday, we joined the church. The following week someone invited us to join the choir. We did and became singers of religious songs, too.
Moses and the Israelites sang this song: Exodus 15:2 “The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him …”
My children are grown now and I continue to work hard in my church. I have found such happiness deep down inside my soul from being with other Christians. They have been there for me in times of trouble and distress as well as the good times when I feel like singing. I am forever grateful to a family who wasn’t afraid to express their love of God as they walked down the street.
It seems to me that we say a lot by our actions. There are numerous opportunities on any given day to show someone the way to our loving heavenly father. Someone aptly put it this way, “Religion is more caught than taught.”
