I know how you feel

I couldn't decide which blog to put this on as it relates to mothering, but really is also a word for the church - for me and my brothers and sisters in Christ. Please go to my other blog Drink from the Deep to read it. Be encouraged and be challened today. Above all . . . go deeper!

Out of the mouth of babes!

I just had to share this! This was an email from my sister-in-law with her daughter (my niece).

Out of the mouth of babes!

Last night, I was reading through one of my theology books (Karl Barth's - God Here And Now) and Gracie was snacking at the table across from me. She paused and asked me what I was reading and if I would read it to her:

Mommy: "Oh, it's a book about God - for grownups. You wouldn't understand it. You'll have to wait until you grow up a little bit more."

Gracie: "Don't you remember that story you told me about the mommies who took their babies to see Jesus and they wanted Him to pray for them and He said, 'Let the little children come to Me'?'"

Mommy: "Yes."

Gracie: "Well? Are you going to read that book to me now?"

I was speechless.

We tend to forget that our kids are like sponges - they haven't had the chance to feel "dried up" . . they are like new sponges - ready to soak up and hold more than we can imagine. Without you even knowing it you are already pouring into their little sponge minds. My question for you is . . .

What are you pouring into it?

I need to do a deeper examination here today.

Our kids have more faith than we do many times. So give them the truth of God - not watered down - but the truth of God's love, healing power, forgiveness, and more! They won't doubt like we do. Point out God's word in action - ie. answers to prayers, blessings, protection, etc. You will be pouring the best "water" into them to give them LIFE . . and life more abundantly! :) ( I love it when my kids point out to me the ways God took care of them or blessed them during the day! Their eyes and ears are being trained to "see" and "hear" God!)

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Drink from the Deep

I just wanted to let you know that I have finally started a new blog (YES - another one!) that I have felt like I was supposed to start for awhile. It's called "Drink from the Deep". God has been telling me to "say what I tell you to say Lori". So I am. I'm not sure what all will be on the site . . . just whatever God wants me to put there. :)
He's also been expanding the visions that He has been giving me lately . . . . not just for my family, or for my church . . . . but for the nation. I'm not exactly sure what He's doing or planning on doing with (in and through) me . . . but I know it's something good! :) I know He wants me to "speak" and say what He's telling and showing me . . . but I'm not sure exactly where or how He wants me to share the "bigger" visions. I guess He'll show me. :) Who knows . . .there may yet be another blog in my future. :)

God bless you guys!
