I was so not ready today and I saw tables with red coverings and I know the shape, how they set up communion plates. I was so nervous about should I take it should I not. I tried to pray for God to make me worthy but having so many impulsive and bad thoughts, it was frightening. Still, I ended up taking it. At first I had trouble swallowing the bread, I've felt a little sick and I hope that was not a sign of me being unworthy that I could not take it at first. The bread and wine were sweet, and seemed good. I thought about the Lutherans, I've been talking to them and it seems a lot of Lutheran things were brought up today. I thought of their communion theology, it is bread and the body of Jesus Christ, it is wine and the blood of Jesus Christ. I have to hope I have not sinned by taking unworthily, I did try to remember the Lutheran's general confession (did I get the name right?) and pray but of course my mind does not make it easy. I remember sometimes in the past, thinking about being hungry on communion days and being carnal, or as a kid not wanting to drink all of the wine. I need to be forgiven for that too. Maybe communion will strengthen my faith, that's something I hope, that communion may restore me some more and give me faith and peace.

I just wanted to share something my fiance' came up with. She is a jewelry designer and has a shop with her daughter. They asked if I had an outlet for some of their items and I told them I would share it with everyone here at CF. So I started them an Etsy Shop account to showcase what they have done. And this is the first items! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! - Rex
