Often when I wake up early, I think of and pray for each family member. Well one morning, when I came to my grandson’s wife, Carrie, I stopped. Then it hit me: “I don’t know Carrie, and she doesn’t know that I care about her or am even interested in her.”
That made me feel sad and guilty. It was then that I received, what I call, a “God Nudge. It said, “Write Carrie a note.” (Initially I mentally resisted, thinking, “I don’t know what to say, and wonder if she thinks it is really dumb!”) But God’s nudge was persistent. Then I wondered how I could get acquainted with her in a note? She lives in Texas and I live in Michigan. Again, I believe God nudged me with an idea: “Write a Get Acquainted Questionnaire.”
I did. And Carrie carefully and thoughtfully filled in out, and so, I am getting to know a new special person.
Now I am thinking of sending the “Getting Acquainted Questionnaire” to my kids and grandkids. The information is also helpful at birthday time and other gift-giving times.
I invite you to also use this Getting Acquainted Questionnaire with someone you are “nudged” to get to know better.
Listen and respond to God nudges. You may have some amazing results.
