It's hard for me to blog about the Bible right now. I'm a little distracted by a commercial for a new show: "Vanilla Ice Goes Amish." I am not making this up. I very much wish I were. It reminds me though, that Jen Hatmaker is going to have a show on HGTV and that is good news. If you don't follow Jen Hatmaker on Twitter you are missing out in a big way. She is a very, very funny Christian (my favorite kind!).
May I also recommend following BibleGateway.com on Twitter? But only if you want your Sunday Twitter feed to be flooded with rocking Bible verses. I look forward to it every Sunday.
This Sunday I had something else to look forward to: it was Bible Sunday at our church! The 1st, 3rd, and 7th graders received a Bible and they were all so precious standing up there receiving God's Word. Our pastor* reminded us that our kids will treat their Bible the same way their parents do. If we use ours only when we need to set our camera on something for a family portrait (what?! We've all done it!) then of course our sons and daughters will also only view it as a prop. Likewise, if they see us with our face in the Bible every day, they are sure to follow suit. And suddenly, I realize I should not wait until my girls are asleep to crack mine open...
Here is my first grader with her new Bible.
I hope your Sunday was just as exciting!
*October is Pastor Appreciation Month, by the way! :)
