Making our Homes a Haven: Fun!

I never saw a Puple Cow;
I never Hope to See One;
But I can Tell, Anyhow,
I'd rather See than Be One.
The Puple Cow, Gelett Burgess

Today our focus in making our homes a haven is FUN. One of the biggest ways to spead fun through out our homes is to simply have a JOY-ful attitude in everything but also going out of our way to make time for little activities that are FUN. Sometimes, it requires a mess so get over it! I say this to myself because I weigh almost all activities by their level of mess, the less mess the more likely we are to engage in them but today I say "Get over it!". Have fun.

Today my list looks like this...

*Family Meditation and Dedication time
*Breakfast
*School from 9:00-12:00 (be devoted)
*Lunch (tell silly stories)
*Reading Time for Littles (Fun Poems)
*Family Project (Thanksgiving activity)
*Rest-Bible Study and Prayer with Superman
*Spend some fun alone time with Superman
*After Rest and Bible Story/Snack time take time to Straighten up all rooms
*2 Loads of Laundry: washed, folded and put away!
*Dinner by Candlelight
*Game Night!!
*Lights out Reading time :0)

Somewhere we will make a trip to Borders bookstore to let Superman spend his gift card from his birthday and possibly make a surprise stop at the nearest park. Today when handling any situations I am going to carry this verse with me...

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22
And think upon this quote...

Joy is not the absence of suffering. It is the presence of God.
Robert Schuller

May JOY fill the air in our homes as we inhale and exhale His presence.


JOYfully in Him,
