Whenever you fall, pick something up. ~Oswald Avery
Do you remember Pick-Up-Sticks? I used to love it as a child, did you? This game is almost as old as humanity, starting perhaps in China, where the sticks were made of ivory. Then on to the Native Americans, who played it with straws of wheat. This particular game we are playing with Ella is Jackstraws, which is an older name for the game. I liked this version because it is not just sticks, but miniature items. There are lots of different kinds in the stores now.
"He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah."
