Making Your Home A Haven: Fun
Great job this week! Have your husbands or children noticed a difference in your home this week? I'd love to hear how your Havens are impacting your families!
One note - I've been visiting your posts and it seems there are many struggles in our efforts to create Havens. I have been experiencing this as well and it seems logical when you think about it. We are desiring to honor God which means that we are likely on our enemy's radar - he wants to stop us to frustrate us to discourage us. I believe God would want us to persevere and honor Him in what we are able to get done - believe me, this is speaking to myself first of all.
Let's move on with day four ~
Time with Our Father: This would be a great time to pray over our lists for today, pray for God's blessing on our homes and the homes of the other ladies participating and spend sweet time in fellowship with Him. What thought will you carry with you today from your quiet time?
For me, one aspect of making my home a haven is that it is a place that is fun to be. A place where memories are made. Over the past few days, we've accomplished a lot in the physical care of our home. Today, I want to focus on making my home a place that is fun to be. What is on your list today?
It is always fun to hear what everyone else is having for dinner - what are you serving tonight?
Here's my plan for today:
Up and dressed; sitting at the kitchen table by 7am for Quiet Time
Littles up; fed; dressed
Park for play - the girls asked for this yesterday and since today is about fun, I am happy to accommodate.
Craft time - supplies in the trunk are fair game!
Dinner: Hamburgers and Oven Fries (since David surprised me with dinner out last night - we'll have this tonight!)
I would love to hear what you are planning for the day. If you are able or interested - please take before and after pictures and tell us about your day! I'll be posting my update later today on how our day went. Please add your link (directly to your post, please) or comment so we can visit and encourage one another. Let's also be diligent in praying for one another these last couple of days.
