Abounding

Though unusually long days out of the house were more normal than I would have liked and I did not, no did not get up but once in seven days to spend time alone with the Lord, this idea of abounding with love with real knowledge and discernment to approve what is excellent has been marinating around in my mind and heart.

 Thank you Lord, for you abound in grace...though my life is busy and I fail....

So we did this activity with the kids to show them just what overflowing, abounding, superabounding looks like...only we used some bubbles and food colouring. Sometimes it's the simple things in life isn't it?!






As the bubbles overflowed, we chatted (or at least tried to) about our prayers for them. We asked questions like: What is real knowledge? and What is discernment? and Why would Paul pray these things for other believers? and Why would we pray these things for them...for friends...for family?







Yes, it is the simple isn't it? Our kids loved doing this activity (which I found here), though, I'm not sure anything really stuck (I never am really sure about that), but still we are faithful, by God's grace most days, to sew the seed and trust the Lord to reap the harvest....
