We have gotten into the very busy part of summer here now. With our garden things coming ready, lots of weeding to do, animals to tend, berry picking time coming soon, company coming, and the children in summer camps.
So this is to say I have decided to take a break from blogging and vlogging for a few weeks. But if I do manage to have some time and some inspiration to write, I certainly would jump on here quick and do that, otherwise the pressure is off me to try and do this weekly.
Summers are short and sweet how they are this far north, so you really have to make the most of them and I want to make sure I have plenty of time for my family. As well as to be able to enjoy all the things of summer.
Before I sign off here I just want to give you some advice and encouragement so you can make your summer a great one too!
~ Be there with and for your family.
~ And be aware of being all there -- giving your children your full attention. ( careful not to be distracted on your phone, etc..)
~ Be deliberate about putting God and the things of God into your lives on a daily biases.
~ If daily family devotions are not a regular a part of your lives, start this summer!
~ Make God a part of your normal conversation.
~ Make every moment a teachable moment.
~ Be patient with your children, and slow to anger.
~ Be consistent and firm, yet loving in correction.
~ Think of new ways to connect with your children, & really be a part of their lives this summer.
~ Be careful only to say those things that will uplift, encourage, & inspire them to want to do their best to please you and God.
~ And don't forget to take time for you, to rest & rejuvenate, and connect with God so you can continue pouring into your family.
Keep up the great work moms!
May you have a blessed summer! And remember as always I love hearing from my readers. I want to hear your comments, questions, and prayer requests. And I will reply as soon as I can.
In Him, Mae
