Missing Throwdown...

I was sick last week...so I sat my butt down on the couch and watched bad NFL playoff games, the Tennessee/Kansas game, and Gladiator. I love the "previous" button on the remote!

We are putting my boys down for bed and they looked at me and said, "We missed Throwdown!" Even though I made them do it two weeks ago when they were sick, I was a loser and wimped out. Even though I felt bad, I was really excited that they missed doing it. Maybe we are doing something right?
We have had two throwdowns since my last post. We have covered the parable of the mustard seed, being the smallest seed, but growing to be one of the biggest plants in the garden...and the birds of the fields come and build their nests in it. Steph asked them what are some small things they can do at school,home,church to advance the Kingdom of God? My boys came up with great answers. Everything from talking to people at school about Jesus, going on mission trips,obeying Mom and Dad, to going around the neighborhood and asking people about Jesus...that one got me scared. Then Sam spoke up and said mockingly, "Watch the God Channel!" We all started laughing. He gets that from his mother! Again, I incorporate wrestling moves or "fighting moves" into these times to help them remember the parables. This certain Throwdown was the Darth Vader pinch. All he would do is squeeze his fingers together and people would choke. Something so small...yet effective. I know, maybe not the best reference, but hey...they remember!!!
Yesterday we spoke about the houses being built on a shaky foundation or the Rock. It is so much fun watching them get excited. They get in competition on giving me answers...high fives for corrct answers! They love it. This wrestling move was the "noogy"! The deeper it goes, the more it works. So we spoke about going deep with Christ. They actually convict me with some of the answers they come up with. I am starting to see that the more we as families pray and study together...the strength of the Lord comes in! Isn't it funny that God told Abraham, the father of many nations, that all the families of the earth would be blessed through him...

Reading your "throw down" blogs reminded me of when you guys first came to Grace Temple. You looked so bored until I started talking about wrestling and then somehow we found a connection. I so appreciate the passion you have always had....you truly live life out loud!

we must first be able to hit others, and at the same time to win, and then have a way to escape, attack, the undoubtedly high speed mobile is the most effective way. Pal, are so comprehensive, that is,diablo 3 items because that can TP can sprint to become second only to the ability to move the mage characters.
