Summer vacation after kindergarten was tuff. The backyard swing-set seemed lame compared to the mega playground at school. Lucky for me it was only a few blocks away, so I went there often.

One day there were a couple second grade girls jumping rope. My heart began thumping under their hypnotic gaze so naturally I pretended that I had a secret transmitter in my wrist watch. Secret agents are so cool.

Visibly impressed, they pointed and giggled; obviously hoping I’d join them. After a careful look around for bad-guys, I briefed them on my top secret mission and I even showed them the secret handshake. I had them wrapped around my finger and it felt good. Ah, older women.

My wife won’t let me play spy anymore, but we will keep that a secret. When I came to Christ, I became part of a family way cooler than any spy-ring. We even have something better than a secret handshake to identify ourselves as Christians. We treat each other with love.


John 13:34-35

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

Lovely post. I'm all into nostalgia the first days of January.

God's secret handshake is the hardest of all (how much easier to "snark one another" or "cold shoulder one another" or "judge each other mercilessly at all time." But love, whoa, talk about disarming one's pride. That's a tough secret handshake. BUT..it's the one that brings the most rewards. Nothing fills you up like it.

So, hurrah for the one God chose.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL CURMUDGEONS EVERYWHERE.

Mimi - A day without a visit from you is like a day without sunshine.

As for the book, it's a long story. I hope I can give you one someday soon.

We do have a problem with spy rings...Paul warns about them in Galatians. But as long as we do not surrender the freedom we have in Christ and refuse to be enslaved. Being a member of the family of God in Christ Jesus is way cooler than working on the chian gang by someone who shanghied you.

St. Jeremiah - Well said. Thanks for stopping by!
