Family Flourishing - Listening for Jesus' Invitation
Dearest Trinity Church,
I pray that in this third week in Easter you will sense the Lord's nearness as He walks with us through this unique time. I have been asking Jesus to reveal the invitation He has for me during this season of being away from the dear people I normally spend each week with (especially the children!).
He is saying, "I am your invitation. Feast on me as I reveal myself through prayer (see "Litany of Trust" below), Seeking God's Face with my husband, the earth springing back to life, talking with neighbors, online communities including a weekly FaceTime call with mom and brothers, drive-thru church, essential workers and family and more.”
I wonder how Jesus is inviting you to feast on Him in this unique Easter season?
Here are some links I have found helpful over the past few weeks:
Art and Theology - I really enjoyed the April 25 blog post. There is a fun bedtime song for children near the end.
Grapes and Peas - Mac Meador offers a weekly Scripture song for kids. (I really like his Lent/Easter album too)
Compline - this site posts a new 10 minute prayer service each evening. They are beautiful and restful.
The Chosen - a creative and relational telling of the life of Jesus in an eight episode series.
Groundhogs and Gardens - a hilarious video of a relationship between a gardener and a groundhog (true story).
Deeply missing you,
