- Glow in the Dark Capture the Flag
- Timing is Everything
We never played the original capture the flag game when I was a kid. Well maybe once, but glow in the dark stuff has always been a favorite of mine. Dollar Tree always has lots of it, and in a price range I like. So are you ready to get your game on?
Shari over at Let’s Get Together has an awesome way to make the game, well…..even more awesome. Click HERE.
Downloads from God – Journal Entry #18 – Timing is Everything
As my daughter is approaching the age of learning to drive, I find myself thinking about how I will teach her. There are so many things that we do while driving that have become instinctive. I don’t think about it anymore. So, it causes me to mentally start breaking it all down in steps and categories at how to know when to pull out, and when not to pull out into a busy street. With more and more people texting and paying more attention to other things than driving, I also wonder how to teach that as well.
I’ve often said driving is like a game of double dutch. You watch, and watch and watch and then just jump out there on the road. It’s all about timing. Knowing when it’s safe to pull onto a busy road, and when not to.
There’s a time to jump, and a time to not jump. Being patient and waiting for the right and perfect time is key.
The Bible says in James 1:4, “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”
As we think about a grateful heart, we must also think about patience. There are many things that I can think of that nudge us out of being patient, but among the greatest is fear. It is incredibly important to remember to be as willing to wait, as it is to jump. You remember the old Frogger game? right? There’s a time to jump, and a time to wait.
It’s in the waiting times of being patient, that we perfect other skills. We hone them and make them stronger.
As you journal, include times in your life where you were in either a holding pattern or a hopping pattern, and what strengths you found as you waited.
