Why is it that we only notice things when our hearts are open to them? For example, I've thought a lot lately about what I should do for my children's schooling next year. I know that as they get older, they will be exposed more and more to worldy things. So I've really been praying a lot if we should homeschool, go public school or choose Christian school? Why I'm thinking about this in February nonstop when there is penty of time to decide, I don't know. Anyhow, because my heart is open to this topic, I hear and notice anything around me that relates to this. It's funny how it works that way and I was thinking that it would be so wonderful if our hearts would be open and receptive to God at all times, not just when we are ready to listen. So..."Lord, please help us to have open hearts and minds so that we can hear your voice and walk in wisdom from you."
Muffin Tin Monday at lunch time. I absolutely loved having a Bible theme because it really gave me a chance to teach my kids about Jonah and the importance of listening and following God. The majority of my tin is made up of my pancake art. Also in the muffin tin is cut up string cheese and chocolate sunken ocean "treasure" coins. We also talked about how God's love is our real treasure in life.
