Superheroes

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!

    We gave our sons the middle names Michael and Gabriel, and have enjoyed portraying angels as mighty warriors to them. Oh, and I also still daydream about being able to fly, especially on windy days. Sigh.

    Aw man, how awesome to know that supernatural power truly exists!!! So fun to allow our imaginations to run away with us, but how insanely cool is it that our imaginations can’t even touch the might and powers our God contains? Thanks Kelly. I just think you’re the coolest Mom. When I grow up, I wanna be like you :)

    Ahh… our oldest daughter is making a [sometimes painful] transition from fairy tales and princesses into the amazing world of superheroes and all things extraordinary that dance on the edge of realism and fantasy.
    Recently I have had the priviledge of watching her develop a fascination with action/hero/adventure comic books. She’s so quirky by nature that this was an awesome addition to her character.
    I stumbled on The Action Bible quite by accident and initially chuckled at the cover but after I picked it up I was hooked. I called my husband from the store and had him order it on Amazon (because it saved $5 and I am such a hardcore tightwad). I have been really happy with the purchase: the quality of the pages is excellent, the animations are fantastic and she LOVES it! I was amused when she kept flicking on the reading lamp (under her covers) after bedtime to sneak “just a few more pages” of her Bible but the real payoff came the other day when she was catching up on some more late night reading and as my husband passed her room on the way to bed she said, “And isn’t Paul just amazing?! I mean, he got bit by a viper and just SHOOK IT OFF into the fire!!” I’ve overheard her telling one of our neighbors about “these special powers that God gives to people in the Bible” and poring over the pages excitedly with her friends.
    All that to say, if your kiddos are into superhero comics, maybe give The Action Bible a read if you haven’t already. It’s $20 well spent.
