The Painting: Another small sweet Appy for your heart to grab onto!  I already sold the horse I posted yesterday...

The Thought:  There is this thing called TX CONNECT.  I started getting these emails from TXCONNECT.  I finally figured out it was the school email system for grading and the parent is alerted any time their student makes below a 70 on a test or their average falls below 70. The teacher does not even have to send an email or write anything...the system does it all.

Made me think about a GODCONNECT.  What if you got an email or text message every time you sinned or did something off path from your journey?  How full would your email box be?

I had suggested to Leah that she wear a rubberband on her wrist to remind her to not do something she has a bad habit of doing.  I told her she could just pop the rubberband (gently of course) and the little snap of pain was suppose to be a reminder of sorts.  She liked that idea but I haven't seen her wearing a rubber band at all.  What would it be like if God gave us a little 'tap' on the shoulder or a 'plunk' on the top of our head everytime we strayed? 

Our society has gotten to the point of demanding instant gratification and alerts immediately. We carry our cell phones everywhere and even have them on vibrate in church and at the symphony.

God is still a bit old fashion.  He lets us fall on our own.  We become stronger by our trials as we pick ourselves up.  Our GODCONNECT needs to be through opening our hearts and minds to prayer and meditation with Him.


"I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.”- 1 Corinthians 1:10
