|Wear gloves and goggles...they have sharp beaks|
We have learned that it is illegal to keep these birds in captivity. As much as our hearts desire to help and nurture these fallen creatures, it is our authorities that have legal jurisdiction over them. Sometimes it is difficult to obey our laws when our hearts plead for something else, but the intellect can and will win out. Perhaps this is why Christianity is losing the battle on the intellectual playing field.
Have you ever slowed down enough to realize we are called to love the Lord our God with not only our heart and soul, but our intellect and strength as well? We've been reading, "Cold Case Christianity for Kids," by J. Warner Wallace and Susie Wallace with Rob Suggs. He points this challenge right out of Scripture and we've been encouraged by examining our faith in this way.

Are you actively engaged in teaching your children to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength? (Mark 12:29-31)
Is it O.K. or right to simply engage the mind once a week, Sunday morning and perhaps a mid week service and a few times here and there amidst day long submersion in a godless educational system?
I'm just asking some hard questions....prying up some sort of century old thinking that somehow lost its moorings a while ago....

I'm reading a book called, "Becoming a Woman of Simplicity," by Cynthia Heald. I recommend this to all women no matter your age, or standing in this life. It cuts away all the pigeon holes we create and gets us back to our first love.....Jesus Christ. This book should be on every Christian woman's shelf.
Happy Adventures everyone!
