Here's one of my ah-ha moments from the Lord.
The other night during a showing our family went to chick-fila and we took the Family Cell Phone Challenge. They gave us a little coop for our cell phones and if the whole family goes the entire meal without getting on their cell phones, everyone gets an ice cream. Isn't that a fun idea! This challenge reminds me of Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you as well." Chick-fila aims to serve their local community in which restaurants operate and I have seen this over and over from them setting up mother son date knights, father daughter date nights and donating free food to the people donating blood for the night club shooting. So here they are, serving families by challenging them to stay off thier cell phone and afterward I shared about it on facebook, free advertising! When we aim to do what the Lord has called us to do, the other stuff gets thrown in.
Here's how it works.
1. Link up as many blog posts as you want below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. (Perhaps think of old posts you want more exposure to as well as new ones.)
2. Let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or paste my button code (found below and on the side bar).
3. Take a minute to visit and comment on another sweet lady or two's post. You're encouragement might be just what she needs to keep pressing on in being a voice in the darkness.
