Today's Opportunity Plan Day 4

In this unique season of family togetherness, we have the opportunity to be intentional about our self-care, our relationships, and even taking care of the home we live in.
Sometimes we need a little vision, though. A plan. Some ideas that get us heading in the right direction.
I introduced the concept of “Today’s Opportunity Plan” on Sunday. If you missed it, you can find it here.

Here’s Day 4:

Your soul:
Listen to Christian music all day today. Tell Alexa to play “Top Christian” or “Hillsong Worship” on Amazon music. If you don’t have Amazon Music and Alexa doesn’t live at your house, you can listen to a great Christian station at www.wcicfm.org
You:
Call or Facetime a friend you haven’t talked to in forever.
 
Marriage:
Enjoy a one-minute hug today. Just hold each other for a minute. (You’ll be amazed at how long a minute is when you’re hugging!) If the kids want to do an Oreo Cookie hug, set the timer for 1 minute and tell them you get the first minute and when the timer dings, it’s Oreo Cookie time!
 
Kids:
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Got any wet erase or dry erase markers? If your kids are old enough to manage them, give them permission to decorate your windows and/or patio window!
If your child is learning their letters, you can also write the letters on a patio door at their level and then give them a wet paper towel to play a game with them: “Erase the “P.” “Erase the letter that the word ‘dog’ starts with.”
Teens: Have them plan an entire meal that they can cook for the family this week! Once they have it planned, work together to see what ingredients you already have on hand. If you need something more, have them create an ingredient list so you can order/pick up the groceries needed. Determine when they will be in charge of dinner. Ask if they’d like your help at all or if they want to do it completely on their own.
 
Exercise:
Hold five 20-second planks today. Never done a plank? Here’s a tutorial!
 
House:
Clean one bathroom.
 
Clothes:
Go through one child’s clothes and shoes today. Get clothes out that don’t fit and donate them, pass them on to a mom who has a child who wears that size, or store them for the next younger child. 
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
