Spending the afternoon relaxing after having performed our Christmas program this morning. I had a very small solo in it, and am glad to have that done. Robert showed up for church this morning "to hear mom sing", which was nice, but so many emotions were running through me when I saw him that I had a hard time keeping it together for the performance. He is still acting as if he did nothing wrong. Told us he had a job. I told him I loved and missed him, and hoped he was able to get his life in order. Neither Tim nor I gave him any reason to think that he could come home just because he has a job. We have both re-read the parable of the prodigal son in the bible. We feel that we will only be able to bring Robert back into the fold after he returns as the prodigal son did, contright, trully sorry and wanting nothing more then to merely "work as a slave". Obviously we don't want him back as a slave LOL, but the attitude of knowing we don't "owe" him anything. I have to go back to church in a few minutes. I am starting today to sing with the Worship team on Sunday nights. I am nervous, but also glad that God is allowing me the opportunity to serve.
