Something to Think About
Go... Make a Difference

Let us not become weary in doing
good, for at the proper time we will
reap a harvest if we do not give up.
(Galations 6:9)

Who Is God?

By Ginny (MAD21)

I've shared with you all before that one of my favorite times of day is bedtime. Not because it's when the house finally goes quiet, but because it's one of the few times in the day when I have some good, quality time with my girls without distraction. This is when we talk about our day, good times and bad, tell silly stories or ask serious questions.

During one particular conversation about a month ago, my oldest was asking me some questions about God and what I thought about him. At one point she actually asked me, "Who is God?" Leave it to our kids to ask us questions that can take a lifetime to answer. Since she is only almost seven (I have to say that -so she says- because she'll be seven in a few weeks), I could keep the answer a little simpler than if an adult were asking me, but it really got me thinking. For one thing, she won't be seven forever and she has a little sister who is growing up right behind her who rarely accepts short answers even at almost four and a half (that half is important to her, too).

Every Day Life: In Heaven

By Beth M

Recently I have re-read The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, book 5 in C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. Partly because I love the series and partly because the movie is coming out soon and I need to be prepared to criticize it. You'll be happy to know that I am thoroughly prepared. Once I finished that book I thought, "Hey, why not read books 6 and 7 too?" After all, I've only read them about 37 times each, not like The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe which I know by heart. So I read The Silver Chair and The Last  Battle.

It was the last book, The Last Battle, that really spoke to me this time. I've read it tons of times, know the story inside and out, but this time it just somehow meant more. It really got me thinking about heaven and eternity and all that stuff that I believe in but never really think about. It's scary to think of FOREVER, we can't understand it, makes my head hurt to try. I think my way, and maybe lots of others' way of thinking about heaven can be summed up in the Kenny Chesney song "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven" the lines of interest being: "don't you want to hear  Him call your name when you're standing at the pearly gates? I told him, 'Preacher, yes I do but I hope He don't' call today, I ain't ready!" "here's a ten to help you remember, the next time you've got the good Lord's ear, tell Him I'm coming but there ain't no hurry, I'm having fun down here." "everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to go now" We think of all the fun things we want to do, or are doing, and think that heaven can't measure up!
