I like that picture too. I really get into pictures that show Bible scenes. Thanks for reading my posts. I tried to let folks know where I'm at. It's hard to fellowship with others if you don't put yourself out there.
I beleive very firmly that God does both, use other men to teach and train us, and he also meets us and leads us through the bible, movies, music, he is in all things, above all things, creator of all things. he can be found anywhere and everywhere. They key is to be open to hear and see and experience his presence in your everyday life.
Drew, thanks for the howdy. I noted this entry in Movie Grabs: "Spring Forward" (1999) with Ned Beatty. Changing the world of one person at a time. Maybe investing a large portion of your life in them. I wish someone had chosen to invest themselves in me. I want to invest myself more in my wife and kids.
I'll Netflix it. I just wrote a truly wild-hearted missionary (I conducted a WAH retreat for his team) about the young man he is fathering; slightly older than his son, but is far more interested than his son in the basic elemnts of life, God and hunting.. Its a repeat of the red-haired longshorman who became my spiritual father. It so happens, Drew, I am launching the wevb site for my book this wekend, and the issue of a surrogate father is oneo of the ideas we anre exploring.
Drew, What a treat. Wasn't expecting music nor the quality. I dropped in just to meet you, having seen you on a couple of fathering sites. I was taken by this line in your reverie of SCC: "We immediately connected with what Steven Curtis Chapman said about where we are supposed to get the image of our self from. " I was wondering if you would connect that imaging to fathering. Well, you did by citing God's roll.
I want to invite you to drop in for a visit on the group I just opened up to explore the fathering theme in a particular way, generational fathering. I want to encourage younger dads to pass the Story down, maybe hand pages of your own father's or grandfather's stories to your children. Take a peek and see if you have anything to contribute, maybe take away. Bring your story with you.
Welcome to F.L.Ex: I hope that you find it to be a place where you can share and reflect with the other father's there. I would love to hear more of your story.
Firmly In HIS grip,
PS. Your songs are a great witness.
