Kobe seen me heading out the door with my roller blades and ran to grab the old ones that have been in the garage since who knows when. Please, please, please could I teach him. Lookin at that face I didn’t feel quite so bad about forgoing my anticipated workout for a quick lesson. (or maybe I didn’t want to work out that badly 🙂 I learned how to roller blade by holding on to a baby stroller and going up and down the sidewalk until I felt steady on my feet and understood the stride needed to stay balanced. I pulled out our old stroller, grabbed a helmet and set him loose. After spending about 20 minutes behind the stroller he was brave enough to let go. Guess what? He had it! He was free wheelin after that. Natalie, seeing her brother’s success grabbed my blades and tried it out. My size 10 skates made things a tad bit harder but she caught on as well. We made it through the learning process with just a few falls and not one band aid. Big accomplishment for two kids who know the names of their favorite antiseptics in the medicine cabinet.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
