I'm thinking I've written before about my imaginary friends when I was younger. Poppy was my invisible friend I created when I was around 3-4 years old. I had many friends I created, and from my mom's accounts spent many hours with them. What an active imagination I had, guess I still do. The church we go to is a small church, it has grown in number since we first started, but is still quite small in number but I feel we do radiate joy as we sing. And our pastor Linda tells her sermons with enthusiasm. When I first started going I felt really good about the church, but couldn't quite shake the feeling of sympathy for the amount of people that was there. But each week I see new faces and hear diffrent testimonies and find out how wrong my first thought was. Then I heard these words from the hymnal. "Therefore with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven, we worship and adore Thy glorius name." Doesn't that just change everything. Here I was in this small church with angels and archangels and the company of heaven. A lot more than I originally thought. What wonderful company I was with and didn't even realize. Makes me think about when I first came to Christ in faith, I think we join an invisible host of companions, many angels. Maybe those imaginary friends were angels I was really playing with, who knows. Don't you love thinking of angels in our presence. I do.
