A month ago when our grand-daughter was going through the weird-shy stage toddlers go through, it was such heartbreak to have her avoid contact with me.The week earlier, we were best buddies, and out of nowhere, pariah!I can’t help but think it is because we don’t really know Him, that we reject Him so easily. His love, so generous and unmeasured, is always seeking to invite us back home to the safety, love, and mercy of His Heart.Perhaps He see us as little toddlers in the weird-shy stage, with dirty pants, and stubborn wills, playing in the dumpster, all the while boasting of our artificial happiness without Him. This I can understand, when I want nothing more than to soothe, cleanse, engage and correct a toddler.The most often used reply goes something like this, “It could be better.” They will likely describe the relationship as more of a distant uncle or grandfather, one they go to only in need. I wonder where we have failed over the decades and generations to form strong bonds between the sons and daughters and their heavenly Father. I dare say it is imperative that we starting with fostering that critical relationship ourselves.
the little feet came running from around the corner at the sound of my voice.

There is also a set of questions at the end of every week that helped us to talk about what we were learning.
It took about nine weeks and had topics that really made me and my girlfriend think.
