Okay there are a few things you really ought to check out here.
- First go read Brian's article "Student or Disciple?" at Growing Vertical. It's exactly what I wanted to post...but he types a lot faster than I do. This is a really neat look at what a disciple was in Jesus' time and culture and it ends with a serious challenge.
- Then pop over to The Sparrow's Nest and read "Raising our Ebenezers." Just go over and look at the pictures of this lovely idea for family prayer. The president of Child Evangelism Fellowship spoke on prayer this weekend at our church. So these two links are a headstart on sharing what I don't have time to write about what God is doing in my heart this week.
- And finally, won't you pray for sweet little Ashley Kate? She's been doing so much better the past few months, but she's very sick again.
I really want to use Mrs.Wilt's idea for Ebenezer stones - gotta find the right basket. I'm really going to try to read through the Gospels this week. The kids and I are going to embark on a mission to memorize the Gospel of John. We'll begin by reviewing the chunks of chapters 1 and 3 that we learned last year, then add other large chunks from other chapters, then eventually learn the book as a whole, gluing the pieces back together. That's the plan - now off to sleep I go - because I'm gonna have a lot of work to do! :^)
