Hellooooo, Mini-Women! Check out ASHER'S latest collage. Ya gotta love the whole yo-yo thing, right? ASHER says she has one more piece of art work for this series -- a collage of ALL the words on our list of qualities to develop so we'll know, know, know that God is right here with us. Personally, I can't WAIT to see that.
I also want to welcome back MEGGIEBEAR who hasn't been with us for a while. We understand that sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the posts and comments, but we always love it when you return. The welcome mat is always out.
And thank you, precious MW's, for weighing in on where you might be acting in ways that aren't appropriate for your actual years. It's so hard knowing when that grown-up feeling is natural, and when you're just pretending to be all teenagery. The best test is whether what you're doing and saying feels like you. If you're using your power to be yourself, you're good to go. Don't worry if you don't always get it "right." It's a lifelong journey, and with God so close, you'll travel far.
Finally, your Z words were SO creative! Yikes!
ASHLYN: We need to be examples to others in God's ZOO. We need to be ZESTY. We need him to be the stripes on our ZEBRA (Or we wouldn't be a zebra), We need to be a plentiful harvest of God's wisdom and knowledge and what I mean is we need to be ZUCCHINI!
THIRZAH: we need to have zest for Gods word and we need to be zealous for telling others about God
WENDY: We need to be like Zechariah (John The Baptist's Dad)
MARYBETH: Zestful is my word.
KAYLEE: Zealous is my z word as well
ALYSSA: ZIP up the bad stuff and throw it out.
ASHER: learn from Zacchaeus, prepared for zero hour (when Jesus is coming back again)
Seriously, how cool is that list? It proves that you are already the word that I came up with, which is:
This time, between now and Friday morning, November 20, I would love for YOU to tell us why you think I have chosen this word to fill in our blank:
To know that God is so very close, I need to be zany.
Try to give us a reason AND an example of your own zaniness for God.
Feel free to help each other with this. We are, after all, all in this zany business together.
