I have heard it said before: “We are human beings, not human doings.” In fact, I have pledged to live by that simple mantra a time or twenty.

That’s what had happened that morning. The phone rang, and it was Sandy. She’s one of those rare souls in my life whose whole being seems fully directed toward the spontaneous act, the random lunch, the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants whim.
I let the phone ring four times before answering, because you never know what you might agree to when Sandy calls. But I answered, and sure enough, she had another idea.

Before you leave, I have a favor to ask you.Can you drop me a single word in the comment box? I’m looking for words that answer this question: “In God’s Heart I Am …”
Or share your thoughts over on my Facebook page, found here.
This week, the girls will paint those words — your words! — on a canvas. We’ll hang the painting between their bedroom doors, as a reminder of who they are in Christ. I’ll share their finished product with you later in the week!

The video was inspired by Holley’s book “God’s Heart for You.” I have not read the book, but was touched by this sweet video. If you’re having trouble seeing the video, you can find it on YouTube by clicking here:
