In brightest day, in darkest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power…Green Lantern’s light!
I have always loved super heroes. when I was little, I spent many days outside in the summer pretending I had the ability to fly, testing this theory by jumping out of a loft in our barn into a pile of hay. It never worked and I always ended on the ground,but I have never given up the dream that I would one day spontaneously take off of the ground. The other evening, it was so windy at the beach that we were able to take our towels and use them as super hero capes as they flowed behind us. My kids are as much into super heroes as Joel and I are. They are amazed that any single being could be that cool. My oldest son will frequently ask me if that could really happen (insert anything super human). Of course my answer has been no, until we watched Angel Wars. It was awesome to have my kids see something really cool and be able to tell them that yes, that really does happen. God is big and powerful and loves us so much that he has wonderful big powerful beings to help protect us. It is nice to see my kids want to have super hero powers but it is nicer to see them want to be like archangel Michael.
Every day I am challenged to help my family know that God is strong and trust in His power. We try to have fun with super hero characters and focus on the very positive and motivating attributes, while looking at how the plans of the villains are constantly being thwarted. My kids think God is cool and thankfully they also know that God is real power. Praise God for giving us awesome kids!
