We took the grandkids and the younger kids to Disney today... oh, boy, is all I can say...
It was quite a job but we had fun! How can we not have fun at Disney? We only lost "one" kid during the day. Yes, you heard it right, just "one!" This boy has a hard time listening to direction.... I was happy to know that after he got lost he actually remembered what I told him about "if lost, find a worker." We found him next to the "Disney worker!" PTL , something sunk in!
The real reason for this post is to tell you that earlier this week, I read "A Holy Experience" and was convicted about memorizing scripture. In the past, I would pick a scripture and do it for a couple of days and then drop it. I don't really follow through with it...
But, after reading her post and listening to John Piper speak about it, I was cut to the core. So, yesterday morning, I decided to write the scripture on a paper and carry it around with me. Whenever I was in a line, everyone knows that there are lines at Disney, I would read it over and over. Sometimes out loud with the kids and sometimes to myself. The funny thing is that the kids memorized it before me. Not planning on it... it just happened. These little minds are sponges. They will soak up whatever you put in them. So, the question is, what are you putting in these little minds that God has graciously given you for a short time?
This job of mine, mommy and grandma, is a ministry. It is not to be taken lightly... It is a high calling from Jesus Himself. Make the most of every opportunity you have to teach them about Jesus. To love on them and to show them Jesus in action!
Here a couple pics from the day...
as well as the scripture that "we" memorized!
