First Date…Tea for Two… June 27, 2011

Filed under: 8 Great Dates for Moms & Daughters — shud3467 @ 11:09 pm

Mackinley and I had our first date of our bible study we are doing,  Secret Keeper Girl (SKG), 8 Great Dates for Moms and Daughters by Dannah Gresh.  I loved reading this book, I have actually recommended this book to my friends with little girls.  She also has another book that was also very helpful and a very easy read called How to Keep the Little in your Girl.  SKG gives really helpful tips on how to help raise Godly young ladies.  Date #1 “Your Beauty in God’s Eyes” suggested setting was taking your daughter to a tea room.  We used the lake house next to the restaurant, which has a very pretty view of Lake Pagett.  It’s these moments when I see Mack as such a young woman.  Our time one on one is so precious, she was so excited and appreciative of our time together…I cherished today with her.  The tea setting was to show our value in God’s eyes, how that value will not change, but how the world can judge our actions as a believer through the ways we dress, talk, and through our actions.  So, to start off I had three different types of cups ceramic, styrofoam, and china.  We compared the value of each cup, in the end we decided that we want the world to see us the way God does, like a beautiful piece of china…

The verse was Isaiah 64:8 We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.  After our tea, Mackinley wanted to walk down to the lake.  Down on the dock we completed the devotion with a “value evaluation” to see if we are ceramic, styrofoam, or china in our walk and how can we move toward presenting ourselves as priceless china.  Mackinley wanted to see which one of us had the most “china” marks, well, I’m a little embarrassed to say, Mackinley had more:-(  Next week, is “Real Physical Beauty”, we are going to give each other facials and go get pedi’s.

I am very excited to say that our tomato has a sprout!!!

    Oh man!!!! Did I seriously just publish a blank comment?! What I was going to say was….you’re making me look like a real ‘dud’ of a mommy. I better get busy before my kids realize how lousy I am. So sweet and great ideas. I know it would be great for our Nia-peah.

    Love you
