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 “Kids 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 (that has a few other questions appropriate for adults) with someone you are “nudged” to get to know better.
Listen and respond to God nudges. You may have some amazing results.
