BONUS DAY #11

We had time with family today.  When you are living Bonus Days, time spent with your family is more exciting than a child on Christmas morning.  E.V.E.R.Y. S.E.C.O.N.D. is spectacular!  There are a number of personal reasons we no longer take a single second for granted with our family members, but most importantly there are three things to do:  1.  Never take an opportunity to be with family for granted.  2.  ENJOY.  Whoever it is.  Where ever it is.  Enjoy your family!  3.  Listen and engage with them.  Listen to their story rather than tell your story.  Ask questions–it gives people value.  Engage them in where they are–don’t expect people to come to you (in discussion, in conversation, in opinion, in ideology, OR EVEN IN THEOLOGY).  If your family doesn’t serve the Lord–be the instrument of God, NOT HIS MOUTH PIECE.  Maybe you don’t realize it, but your family pretty well knows what you believe about how they live.  What they need are your prayers.  (And your presence–by their invitation–in their lives).  Engage your grandchildren by talking with them–ABOUT THEM.  Listen, play, engage–BE FULLY PRESENT and God will use you.

Every day is a Bonus Day!

Much Love,

Marc
