Time together, working it out . . . .

We had some church around our kitchen table that was rich! Three Questions, one piece of paper, a marker and a Bible! That was it and off we ran. I posed the first question for us all to write down our response on our paper. Question #1 – What is a challenge to you right now? What is causing you some pause or stress? We all wrote down our thoughts on our piece of paper. No conversation as of yet. I threw out the next question for reflection. Question #2 – What is the enemy trying to get you to believe about that problem/struggle/issue? What are the agreements he is trying to get you to make? Then, I threw out the last question but still now conversation as...

Check out what Father is up to today . . . .

Check out what Father is up to today . . . .

In whatever wilderness you are wandering, remember these words in Jeremiah 31. They are for us too! Father is out looking for us! As we search, as we yearn, as we wonder – is there rest for our weariness? Father says yes. More than that, Father comes looking. He comes looking for us. Check out the truth I read this morning over cereal and coffee. “This is the way God put it: ‘They found grace out in the desert, these people who survived the killing. Israel, out looking for a place to rest, met God out looking for them!’” Jeremiah 31:2 from The Message Ron had asked what God card we were studying this week. He went to the Plan and saw that...

“Game Night – God card Charades”

“Game Night – God card Charades”

Sometimes after dinner, we will play a game or two before bedtime! Our kids love all kinds of games, but any chance to get Daddy silly is always a bonus in our house! So, they wanted to play charades, and then one of them had the idea to play it with the God cards. Ron and I couldn’t disagree with such a great idea! Maybe they just wanted to stay up later, and they knew this topic would give them a few more minutes. But maybe not!!!!! Somebody grabbed the God card poster. The first person to act picked a number between 1-42. We wrote the number down on a post-it note just so we would remember which cards have been picked. Once they picked a number, they looked at...

“What Really Happened at the Hagan House” – (God card #15 – Fort)

“What Really Happened at the Hagan House” – (God card #15 – Fort)

We are talking about God card #15 this week – God is my fort. He protects me. So, we all grabbed our Bibles and found a place on the couches in the living room. For some reason, Carson wanted to go in the living room. Maya and Ada didn’t, but thankfully, the two sisters worked with their brother in this situation. Maya grabbed some paper and markers, and we were off and running. Everyone looked up a verse from the God card in their Bible, highlighted it and marked in the side margin God card #15! This is so important to get them marking in their Bibles and filling it with your conversations (Study). We read our verses out loud to each other. When we got to...

“What Really Happened at the Hagan House!” – (God card #37 – Super Glue)

Posted by on May 23, 2013 in A Language, Blog, God Cards | 0 comments

This week’s God card is “Super Glue” – I believe God sticks with me! So far, our family board (post) is blank. So, the time studying the God card together has been conversations with the kids, a song and some moments with Ron and the Bible. This is what we are doing this week. Ebbs and flows! Every week is different. It is important to stay loose and focus on the exchange of life. What is a constant is this: every week we put the Bible in the middle of us on our table. We read verses together, and we talk about what they mean and why they matter in the midst of our lives and details. We pray and then we continue to circle back around a few times...

“The Email That Never Reached Him . . . . Dallas Willard”

“The Email That Never Reached Him . . . . Dallas Willard”

This is an email I sent on April 18, 2013 to the best email address I could find in hopes of reaching Dallas Willard. And today, I hear the news that Dr. Willard has taken up his eternal residence in heaven. So, as I had written, it will be on the side of heaven that we meet and talk and share! Though I will miss his words and “eyes to see,” this is not the end, and we will share some dinner someday. Becky, I have for some time thought of this email and the myriad of ways that I could reach Dallas Willard. And perhaps he has many such emails that begin in such a way. But I will start here and if Father believes on this side of eternity that my husband and...
