Struggling with church

Last few months I have been struggling with church. Not with God, although it can be hard to sometimes understand that you are part of a great plan and that your struggles are in fact preparation for a fight yet to come. So, back to church. Have found the last months at church a little hard and at times it seemed that the people were the centre rather than God. Few weeks ago decided to give a 'traditional' service a go again. I had forgotten how 'formal' the service is. However, I soon realised that this focuses the mind back to God, and after a busy week where God can be pushed to the side it puts him back to the centre and gives you back your purpose. I will see how it goes till after Christmas and then will make a final decision about where I want to carry out my formal worship.

Bike service

Picked the bike up week last Friday. The bike wouldn't start so the dealer replace the plugs and it started. Not really sure if it could have been that but two weeks on and running like a dream. Even the fuel consumption has improved up to 60 mpg. I also had the oil and filter done at the same time so for the first time in a long time I have a vehicle with a fully up to date service. Time, of course will tell if the fault comes back but the signs and very positive.

Poor old Bike

Well it let me down again. Same symptoms. Had it recovered home and as it was already booked for service today had it picked up. Have not heard it is ready yet , so in one way a good thing in that at least it was not something simple I had missed. Hopefully a phone call tomorrow to find out the cost.
