In elementary (K-5th grade) this week, we learned about never giving up. Life isn’t always easy, and sometimes it might feel like we’re between a rock and a hard place. But, we shouldn’t give up. God is always there by our side. He will never leave us. And since He’s always there, we can trust that He will take care of us. We should never quit when times get tough. I encourage you to take some time together as a family and discuss the Bible verse Pastor Dan referred in his teaching, Philippians 4:13, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength”.
Family Fun: Attention all parents! If you do not feel any excitement bubbling in your stomach, you should start to feel it right about now. Why? Because this Thursday, April 7th is National No Housework Day! It is completely alright if you screamed, applauded, or even cried with joy right after reading that (I had a little something in my eye). For those of you who doubt, it is entirely possible for this to happen. Do a little extra housework in the days leading up to Thursday and you just might find that day to be entirely free. Or, if that isn’t an option, you can always leave the work until Friday (I think I just heard hundreds of parents turning over in their graves). Even Mark Twain encourages it: “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.” So, what are you going to do with all your spare time? Have family library time and read a book. Watch a movie together. Go out to eat. Eat at home and bring on the paper ware! Do a craft together. Whatever it is that you and your family enjoys doing, now is your time to do it! So, put down the laundry basket, leave the dishes in the sink, and go spend some time with the people that are way more important than housework.
See you Sunday!
