Twinkletivity, sparklehood, and magic

Written by on December 25, 2012

Let’s get wrapped up in the twinkletivity and sparklehood of Jesus’ birthday! (Betcha never knew there were words like twinkletivity and sparklehood, eh?) Let’s be filled with the joy of His child-like spirit. Let’s practice the presence of God, especially in moments that surprise – or disappoint – us.  Feel the warmth of our Heavenly Father as He wraps His arms round us in a great big bear hug.

Once I substituted for an elementary school music teacher for two weeks. A little girl stayed after class  and said, “Mrs. Hare,  do you believe in magic? ” She shot a quick look out to the hallway where her friends waited.

I said, “Do I believe in magic – like pulling rabbits out of hats and making elephants disappear? No.”

She looked down at her feet and said, “Oh.”

“But I believe in Jesus. I believe in the miracles he did. He fed thousands of people fish and bread. He healed people who were blind and sick. He forgives us for stuff we do wrong! That’s what I really believe in.”

The girl straightened up, flashed a grin, and raced out to the hallway.

“What did Mrs. Hare say?” her friends asked. “Does she believe in magic?”

“She said ‘yes!'”

I pray the magic of Christ over you today!

    Lynn, I love your story!
    You are planting the seeds of love with a testimony that so many more need to hear and believe.

    Yes, we must be childlike, full of wonder, belief and acceptance.

    Let the children come….

    Blessings, Bonnie

    Yes, Twinkletivity is for real! On Christmas eve in Trout Lake, Washington, as we went to bed, the moonlit sky was bright, illuminating the snowy landscape—almost too bright to get to sleep! Later, (on my second time to get up to go to the bathroom), I noticed it was so DARK and the sky was full of stars. I wondered what time it was since I knew I had slept several hours. To my surprise it was 6 am! I guess that is what is meant by “It is darkest before the dawn” because even though it starts to get light around 7 am, just one hour earlier there was no sign of daylight. In fact it was such an odd time to see stars that I couldn’t recognize any constellations, not even the Big Dipper which is always in the north out the window—since the earth had 13+ hours of revolution under its belt from the beginning of nighttime. As I lay in bed and looked out the big window, I counted 3 satellites and one airplane. I also loved seeing the stars way down in the trees. I thought, wouldn’t it be cool to see a shooting star? But nah—meteor showers usually happen in summer and especially not at 6:20 in the morning! But—the Magic!! A star shot straight down from the peak of the triangle window, leaving a swath behind it. Wow! That’s Sparklehood!

      Talk about magic, twinkltivity, and sparklehood! You’re living it! Your comment is absolute poetry in motion! I feel like I was there. A shooting star in December? At 6 am? That has your name on it, girl friend. I felt so refreshed in my spirit reading this. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. And the Word was God.” Reminds me of our awesome, majestic Creator.
