reversing our tragic neglect of the Holy Spirit


a slow paced saturday.
a second pot of coffee.
a three-way nap.

one of avery's "spots" on her preschool sticker chart is "show and teach ashton". here she tries to show her colors and shapes.

she is SO not paying attention :)

dave and i started francis chan's forgotten God this week. we are soaking in his words and asking God to change us. we want to lean in hard to the Holy Spirit. we are begging Him to be living and active and audible in our lives.

here's some goodness from the book.

if He doesn't move, we will not produce genuine fruit--no matter how much effort or money we expend. the church becomes irrelevant when it becomes purely a human creation. we are not all we were made to be when everything in our lives and churches can be explained apart from the work and presence of the Spirit of God.

man, oh man, do i want to live an unexplainable life.

this was a super fun game. i made little piles of colorful stuff, grabbed a hungry basket monster(you know, just a basket) and told the girls (well, avery really) that the hungry basket monster wanted 3 orange things and 6 blue things and then she'd run and grab that and bring it back to the hungry basket monster and then we just kept going with it. they LOVED this one.
church tonight.
and the nords are coming over.
this saturday rocks.
