Playdates with God: A Guest Post at Emily’s


It was the first time he ever held my hand. We stood under the stars on the bank of the lake beside his childhood home and he told me how, in high school, he used to mow the grass around this tiny bed of water. It was his first job. I was breathless from the pressure of his hand on mine—from the cool of night clinging to my skin, from the warm of the memories he gave to me—and he said something I will never forget.

“I’ve made a list of things we’re going to do together,” he said.

And he made it clear this was a very long list—one that might take a lifetime to accomplish…

This morning, we are spending our playdate over at my sister Emily Wierenga’s blog. Emily has graciously invited me to share and excerpt from Playdates with God: Having a Childlike Faith in a Grown-up World and she’s hosting a giveaway! Will you join us over there for an excerpt of one of my favorite chapters from the book? And BTW, Amazon is sold out of Playdates again, but don’t forget that my friend Byron still has copies and will be glad to sell to you!

Every Monday I’ll be sharing one of my Playdates with God. I would love to hear about yours. It can be anything: outside, quiet time. Maybe it’s solitary. Maybe it’s loud and crowded. Just find Him. Be with Him. Grab my button at the bottom of the page and join us:

    I love the look of your website, it’s beautiful. I can’t wait to get a copy of your book. I’ve been a big fan of Playdates since starting my blog. How exciting. Blessings, friend. Love the video.

    The art of remembering God rests in our ability to rehearse the Wonder of God when we see it. Each moment can be a remembrance that creates a habit of praising Him in everything, like Thessalonians says.. to give thanks in all things.. to pray without ceasing. Brother Lawrence said it beautifully as we need to practice His presence.
    The lists.. I love them but I never finish them and I never check them all off. 🙂 I am getting better, though, at both the remembering and the list making and finding joy in both.
