In case you don’t know about it, I want to invite you to check out my “micro-blog” posts on Instagram and Facebook. These posts are snapshots of living a life of love in everyday, authentic life! With these photos, I share encouragement to live and love well as we grow our relationship with God – and out of that we live the full live and love people.
We’ve all been in our homes plenty these past weeks! And this can wear on us. Our family has had our share of emotions, irritation, and need to forgive each other.
I’ve been reading Isaiah, and a few verses I hadn’t noticed before caught my heart. They have became my prayer for our home:
In the midst of all the uncertainty and lack of normal rhythms of recent days, there are many daily choices we can make! Each of these small choices add up to create the lives we live. Will you join me in trying to live intentionally, love people, and lean into emotional and spiritual well-being through this difficult time?
Before you read on, pause a moment. What would you put on your Top 10 list for living well these days?
Here’s an easy, no-prep Home Church idea for you! All you need is a roll of toilet paper. No worry – you can save it afterwards and use later!
For these Sundays leading up to Easter, each member of our family is taking a turn leading Home Church. We’re choosing passages from the gospels to help us focus on Jesus’ life and knowing him. This is comforting and encourages our faith through this stressful time, and prepares our hearts for Easter.
We never know where conversations with our children will take us! And what we will learn!
My eleven-year-old daughter saw something curious out the window while I was driving, and wanted to know what it was. I invite you into our little adventure!
She typed out part of our conversation for you:
“Mom, there’s a taco on the end of that bike that’s being pulled by a cow!” I exclaimed.
“What?” said Mom.
When you think back on this past year, what comes to mind?
I have opened my curtains many mornings this past year, thinking on the verse, “Pray continually, being watchful in it with thanksgiving,” (Colossians 4:2). I want to keep choosing a heart posture of watching to see God at work! But as 2019 ends, I don’t yet see the answer to prayer in this area of need, and this year ends without closure.
What have you been praying? In what area of your life is this year coming to a close without answers?
