|Carson the Great and his sidekick, Super Sophie|
And here goes, my second Great Thing of 2011...
This summer, Carson asked grandma to make superhero capes for both he and our dog, Sophie. Grandma did, and soon the adorable duo was out saving the world...or at least our front yard. Carson tried hard to fly from trees with his cape, and attempted to drag Sophie along the best he could. Unsuccessful attempts didn't seem to be a discouragement.
When I think about a child wanting to be a superhero, I love that they don't consider what they CAN'T do, but only what they CAN. I think God wants us all to think that way too. Sometimes in the transition from childhood to becoming an adult, we dismiss the reality that with God, all things are possible. We start to think that we have control, and when control is in our hands, all things are not possible.
My prayer for Carson is that he holds on to that fearless attitude always. In the summer of 2012, kids and volunteers at our SKY VBS program will hear it all week long...
"EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH GOD" Mark 10:27
I can't wait for this message to inspire many to seek out their inner superhero. :)
