You're not in Kansas anymore...

Hmm, lots of thoughts... I didn't get anything written for yesterday, so I'll start there. I had a couple of interesting comments/conversations at work yesterday. We were coloring and somehow one of my kids was talking about being a Christian or pagan. Then someone asked what a Christian was and he said it was a religion, but he was pagan. Interesting because it really shows that I no longer live in the Bible belt! I also thought that it was interesting that he said he was pagan, I've never heard someone refer to themselves that way, non-Christian, atheist, yes, but pagan, no. Then later that night out of the blue, one of the parents asked if I was a Christian. I told her yes and she told me that she was Mormon, but hadn't gone to church recently. Also interesting, I wasn’t quite sure how to respond.

It is also interesting how church can connect to my job. Sunday night I was talking to a lady who I'm becoming friends with and her husband is in the air force. She was talking about how hard it was to have her husband fairly often and how if you don't live on base, you have very little connection to the other military families. She also mentioned trying to start some kind of support group when we finish building the new Life Center on the church. And then yesterday on of my girls was really missing her dad. He is some where in the middle east (I forgot where). I just can't imagine how hard that would be for a little girl.

On to today. It was a good day. I went to church to pick up some stuff for VBS and ended up going out to lunch with one of the pastors and the children's director. I really enjoy spending time with both of them and it is nice to be able to just hang out with people and chat. I really do miss having more friends close enough to do that with. And it was also nice since we don't have Wednesday night stuff for about a month. I will miss being able to see everyone in the middle of the week.
