change this grumpy ole man

Picture_1 So my  challenge to everyone on sunday was to live everyday this week with God.  No one-time-sunday-for-show Christianity allowed anymore.  But I must be honest: today, I woke up in an extremely grumpy mood (which was largely my own fault for staying up too late).  I was dousing my hyper-anal grumpiness all over my sons this morning.  And then, they both ganged up, called me to account and scolded me: "Dad, you are a grumpy man!"

I was stunned.  "I am so sorry, guys," I said to them.  We all hugged and then wrestled for a few minutes.  And we prayed together.  I asked God to renew my heart today and help me show his love better than I had been doing so far this morning.

It’s not easy, but living everyday for God can be done when others hold you to it.

  1. Wow. 16 months later… not much has changed I’m afraid. This morning was almost a complete deja vu!
