The weekend is here! What have you got planned??
I will be working. (I hope not to see you there).
It is only right after 10 days away :) There is a time for rest and a time to get back to work. I am reminded of the simple pleasures of time away, to restore perspective, refresh and to actually experience rest in new ways.
I pray that as your summer unfolds, you will find the same opportunities, on a walk, on your deck, or in the moments you find your family all together.

That was for me today!

When the older ladies remind you, at the most inopportune time, to "just treasure every moment," you may cringe and wonder if that is even possible. Here is some encouragement.
Well, I don't have a teenage boy yet, but I always enjoy perusing a book list! A lot of these will also be great for teen girls, and some on the list we have already read. Enjoy!
So, I'm usually not a podcast listener, but I've been trying out a few lately when I go for a run or make dinner. This episode is an interview with Jen Oshman about LOVE. It was great!!
