That might look awful to you, but it looks wonderful to me.
I've had that book for decades.
Those loving scribbles were made back in January 1985 - or '86.
I remember being determined to have a 'quiet time' with God
even if my children were little and awake,
and well, with me every minute.
I think I'd gotten up to heat my coffee...
and came back to these scribbles.
After I saw those scribbles I decided I needed to get some coloring books,
or just blank pages for them to draw on.
Anyway, those pages (the only ones scribbled on in the book) are precious to me.
I guess there's a lesson here:
if you have small children don't NOT have a time with God.
and don't let your devotional book,
or Bible even,
be too sacred that they can't draw on it.
2. On a totally different note,
I finally announced on Facebook that I want to host a Mission High School reunion
this summer up here in north Texas.
Mission, TX is way down south - in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
Ah, but lots of former Missionites live in north Texas...
or all around the country and world,
and well, they could fly in --- and GET TOGETHER!!!
And I'm not just talking about a 1970 class reunion.
I'm talking about a reunion that would span years and years of graduations.
That may sound too ambitious.
Well, I've been feeling ambitious,
And will tell you more about it, later.
(Maybe I should reserve the AT&T Cowboy Stadium?)
