What Do You Want to be Famous For?

I recently made a pilgrimage with my children to the place of little girls’ dreams, The American Girl Store. As we sat down to have lunch at the bistro, my 7-year-old, Avery, drew my attention to some cards on the table with questions to foster discussion.

“Alright,” I thought, and smiled. “This is my moment to practice what I preach and spend some quality time having a fun conversation with my kid.”

Do you ever think about the disciples or the people who met Jesus when He was on earth and wonder how they could possibly miss Him as the Messiah?  

Of course I have—I’ve judged them too.

But I look at myself sober and realize that I don’t have the confidence that I would know Jesus if he sent me a singing Candygram and delivered it Himself.

When it comes to music, I am a true 80s Baby. I love anything and everything written and sung by Bono and U2. In my older age, I’ve found a greater admiration for this band beyond their beats and melodies because I can now recognize the representation of their faith throughout their music.  It’s a beautiful added bonus that my young ears didn’t yet have the experience to comprehend.
