I think we finally found a church we fit into. A very smooth fit actually.
There wasn't anything "wrong" per say, with the church we used to go to. I just didn't feel comfortable there anymore, something about it felt too organised, maybe too clinical. That might not be quite the right way to put it, but it's all i've got right now!
We went to this church last night, that was amazing. Lucy had a great time, dancing and singing. She thought it wonderful. Within five minutes of walking in the door we'd been introduced to people around us and then left to suss it out for ourselves. No pressure. No forced conversations.
I really enjoyed it. I was nice to feel a part of something. It was nice to be back in Church, i've wanted to go for a while now, but i wanted to find one where we fit. As a family.
Maybe thats whats different about the one we used to go to - we went there pre-Ariana. This new Church, is our way to step forward. With people who didn't know us then and now, and can make comparisons. They accept us as we are today. Because they don't know us any different.
It's a good thing.
