Well, I do get some writing in each week. Since school started in August this year, God put it on my heart to have Monday's go a bit smoother. Not like we are anti-Monday people. However, I do have our big layout the requirements for the week talk and it is a bit overwhelming.
So after listening to a good sermon on 1 Thessalonians 5.
I decided to put these three items into practice: Rejoice, Pray, and give Thanks. So, every Sunday night, I get my kids there own notebook and I write them a love note from me. I try to point on the things I see that I rejoice in from the past week. Then I tell them what I am praying for them for this week. I close at giving thanks for them. Not based on action just being a wonderful child! It wraps my heart just a little closer to them and I am shocked at their response to a little bit of love wrapped in positive words.
Thanks you Lord for your continued guidance and helping me to love those around me well.
