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. (FYI…there’s something new at the bottom! Check it out!)
Here’s Day 7:
Isaiah 41:10: Read, write it out, and put somewhere you and your family can see it. You might even post it at every sink where people are washing their hands so you can all be reminded!
Make yourself a warm drink today that you enjoy and spend a few minutes gazing out the window. Linger longer than you usually do. You might add some worship music to your quiet moment.
Ask each other, “What’s weighing heavy on you right now?” Pray for each other silently or aloud. Never prayed together? Here’s how to start.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Kids and Teens: Start a running game you’ll play off and on throughout the weekend. Instead of winning individual games, you’re trying to score the most points, or win the most games before ending the “tournament” Sunday night.
Take a walk today if the weather allows. Even if it’s less than ideal, bundle up, use an umbrella and walk around the block. The fresh air will do wonders and the walk will get your heart rate going.
It’s time to sort through your toys. Get rid of broken toys, donate toys that aren’t played with anymore. You can even get the kids to join in by issuing a challenge, “Let’s see how many of our toys we can find that nobody plays with anymore and we’ll put them in a box and donate them so that boys and girls who don’t have toys can play them!
Clean out everyone’s sock drawers today. You might as well tackle the pile of single socks that’s in your laundry room while you’re at it. (Where do those socks go?)
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
