Snapshots in Conversation – The One True God

Tonight at bedtime prayers part of Amélie’s went like this…
“Father…
…I know you’re the real One and not the fake one.”
When you pray for your kids to have a heart that longs to know God and at three and a half they confess to knowing with their little hearts that He’s “the real one and not the fake one.” Well, there really aren’t words.

  1. Bless her heart! You are doing such a good job, Angela. That is all I want for Michaela – just to know the Lord. Everything else is gravy.

  2. Hi there! I’m new to your blog, and I love it already! Have you read “Heaven Is For Real” by Todd Burpo, about his son experiencing heaven at 3? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it for you after what your daughter said. He talks about God’s heart for children and about their simple faith. It’s made me view children in a different light! (I have usually liked kids, but mostly at a distance, and not for long periods of time. I know. It’s a problem. But God’s working on me.)

  3. How wonderful that your children are learning to love God at such a tender age! Like your friend said, “everything else is gravy”. Touche! (no “accent egu” on my keyboard – sorry!) 🙂

  4. There are many things a mother can and does do, but the most important is to help her children secure their place in heaven.

    I think that you fall into the category of “Well done my faithful servant.”

  5. Hello Angela – I feel ‘introduced’ to you via the recent “Where Women Cook” magazine. Congratulations on your covergirl status, but also on your terrific blog and website. I’m envious of all you have and are accomplishing. You’ve combined so many elements into your site and business that I crave to emulate! I’m a retired French teacher; there lies my passion. I’d love to visit France again w/ the goal to mine flea markets and side stalls for the wonderful ‘objets’ you’ve photographed (and enhanced!)
    At first reading, I couldn’t help but notice your ‘conservative rantings’, and, no conservative I, thought, “Uh-oh, will this be a deal breaker?” But then, I found you far more mellow that anticipated, in fact, w/ your statements regarding women raising their own children, I knew my biggest suspicion to be unwarranted: that you’d be a Sarah Palin adept. I’m a lifetime Alaskan, infact, my hometown of Palmer is a mere 13 miles from, the now infamous, Wasilla. Sarah was even once my student (my first year of teaching, her freshman year of HS.) I won’t bore you w/ my feelings about the woman – I’m not a ‘hater’ (I have no energy for such a useless and negative emotion.) I’m not willing to argue her supposed good points w/ anyone. Living up close and personal w/ such a phenomonem makes any admiration untenable.
    Anyway! Your website is now RSS’d on my Yahoo homepage, as is “The Resurgence Blog”. Already, you’ve added wisdom and grace to my life! Cheers to you!

  6. Hi there! I’m a new blogger and my daughter just hooked me up with your beautiful sight. Wow someone who loves children, chickens and all lovely things French. A girl after my own heart.
    All the best.

  7. When my two girls were teens God told me they were His and He would take care of them.35 years have passed in a flash and He has been so faithful to His word.Now I’m trusting Him for my 5 grandbabies [age 12 to 24]
    You’re a great Mom.
