Last I made the decision to resume blogging. I have not blog for over a year and the reality is I may Blog maybe once or twice a week. I think I am going to gear this to be a bit more faith then some of the other posts I have done. Depending on the # visits and comments let me know if I should Continue.
Just a note of the official stuff so I can say that I said it:
Everything here represents my own opinion and not the opinion of The United Methodist Church of the Hastings or The United Methodist Church.

By Michael YaconelliI
have always been terrible at praying. I forget. My mind wanders. I fall asleep. I don't pray enough.I don't understand what prayer is or what prayer does.If prayer were school…I would flunk praying. But prayer isn't school.It is mystery. Maybe the mystery is… Jesus loves terrible prayers.Maybe… when I can't think of anything to say, he says what I can't say.When I talk too much, he cherishes my too-many words.When I fall asleep, he holds me in his lap and caresses my weary soul.When I am overwhelmed with guilt at my inconsistent, inadequate praying he whispers, "Your name is always on my lips."I am filled with gratitude, my soul overflows with thankfulness and I find myself saying over and over again, "Thank you." Praying the mystery.
