Sweet reminder

April 8, 2010

Good friends of ours are in Argentina planting a church.

A little while ago Leann posted this ABCs of Christian Parenting list on her blog.

I’ve been wanting to share it since I read it, but for some reason, until recently, when I tried opening her blog I would get re-directed to another site.

Now that it’s fixed I’m so glad to post this here.

Make sure to head over to Leann’s blog to keep up to date with their little family, the oh-so-dashing Mr. Parker and sweet-as-can-be, London Kate, as well as their blog about life in Argentina.

The ABC’s of Christian Parenting

A – Affirm who your children are in Christ.
B – Build a foundation of love and trust.
C – Communicate openly and often.
D – Discipline consistently and fairly.
E – Expect the best of them.
F – Forgive frequently.
G – Give unconditional love.
H – Help them to grow spiritually.
I – Invest time in them.
J – Join in family night fun.
K – Keep Christ central in your home.
L – Live what you teach.
M – Make your home atmosphere positive.
N – Notice and commend achievements.
O – Organize family vacations
P – Pray for them faithfully.
Q – Quote Scripture when appropriate.
R – Release them as they’re ready.
S – Set a good example.
T – Train them well in the ways of the Lord
U – Understand their God – given gifts.
V – Value each child individually.

Thank you again for sharing this Leann!!! Love you friend!!


late night…

April 2, 2010

He came…it was foretold…and He came…to ransom sinners…to lay down His life that this clay pot and many others would have the opportunity of a lifetime…to move from slavery to death into life as a bond-servant to Almighty God…He came…and gave up all…for clay pots…

But, as is the case on many occassions, I’ve found another source that puts it better.

The other day I mentioned the new CD that came in the mail…and this song is so appropriate…a reminder…to not forget how a relationship with God Almighty was made possible…

Redemption Song

Voice of mercy, breath of God

Life from life, sustaining us

Earth below and skies above

Beautiful redemption’s song

Melodies like morning rise

Darkness leaning toward the dawn

Into our sorrow sings the light

A beautiful redemption song

Hallelujah, love is come

Hallelujah, God with us

Hope restored and death undone

Beautiful redemption song

Weeping will not last the night

Nor will sadness be for long

Joy was born of sacrifice

Beautiful redemption song

Let the wounded come and see

Empty grave and lifted stone

Sinners saved and captives free

A beautiful redemption song

Hallelujah, love is come

Hallelujah, God with us

Hope restored and death undone

Beautiful redemption song

Beautiful redemption song

Beautiful redemption song
And…very soon…an interview (!!!) with the very talented Adie Camp and an opportunity to win Just You and Me, her latest album. But…in case you just can’t wait to hear Redemption Song for yourself…you can purchase the full album here or via the always convenient I.Tunes!

Have a blessed weekend as you celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus!
