"See You at the Pole"

Students in Clinton KY (thanks to Facebook friend Kristia Peery Reynolds for the picture.)

A young man named Josiah began one of the greatest revivals and awakenings in the Old Testament. Josiah had become king of Israel at the age of 8. Scripture tells us that at the age of 16, he began to pursue God passionately. Like his forefather, David, he began to show signs of godliness early on and gained the respect of the people. 2 Kings 22:2 states, “He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and walked in all the ways of his father, David, not turning aside to the right or to the left.”

This resulted in
radical obedience getting rid of everything that did not honor God and challenging everyone around him to do likewise. These actions resulted in a mighty move of God in his day — actually, one of the greatest ever!

Our theme verse for See you at the Pole™ comes from the heart of this story. Right after the newly discovered scriptures were read to Josiah, the Bible says, “When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his robes.” In other words, his heart was pierced with conviction. (
Read the full story.)
King Josiah heard the words of God and proclaimed:

“Go and pray to God for me and for the people . . .“ —2 KINGS 22:13a (The Message)

Gone Fishing

This past weekend I did something I had not done in years - I went fishing.  It was part of a kid's fishing derby our local town was doing.  I'll admit that even though I have a father who loves to fish, I have never been too fond of it.  But this was an opportunity to do something with my son Evan - especially since he has never been fishing.  So there I was baiting hooks and casting with limited success with my son.  After about 10 minutes we caught a tiny little fish (see picture below).  Unfortunately, that was the only fish we caught Saturday morning, although the fish were very well fed by the amount of worms I kept passing their way.  Alas, my son seemed to take more after his dad than grandpa - after an hour and a half he was asking if we could go home to play Legos.

Say "CHEESE"

 

New anchor Amy Baumann's son Eli had his first day of preschool on Thursday!  We were laughing about how our boys like to squint when they "smile for the camera."  I found this great website where you can get some tips on how to take pictures of your kids that look cool and professional.  Check it out.  And then share some of the amazing pics of your kids (or the funny smile/squinty eye pics:) on our Facebook page.  (BTW, Amy wanted me to point out that she had bought him the CUTEST first-day-of-school outfit, but he insisted on dressing himself in a sweatshirt, shorts and flip-flops:)  Thanks for letting us share our lives with you.  Peace and k-love, Lisa
