Well, we're three whole days into our summer routine, and the kids are having a great time and I'm … hanging in there and making adjustments to said summer routine! :-) Here's what we're doing:
--Getting up, getting ready, taking care of critters
--Reading together one chapter of John
--Reading together one chapter of Hinds Feet on High Places (my favorite!)
--Doing a fun God-centered activity
--Doing Projects (my next project for them is getting them to clean up the big ol' mess upstairs!)
--Outdoor time in the afternoon (including horses, volleyball, biking, running around the lawn, swimming, hiking, whatever)
Today, for our fun God-centered activity, we played charades, of something that reminds of us God. Some did the wind, or a bird, or a growing plant. I did water. I did it because you can't live very long without water. It brings life and growth and hope. And when you get it, it doesn't just keep you alive, it's also refreshing, cleansing, cooling, and purifying.
Water changes everything. God, His presence, changes everything. Where it was once dry and hopeless, there is life, refreshment and hope. Where I was once parched and filthy, I can be filled with life and clean. Ah, I want to drink deeply of the living water that is my Jesus!
