Greeting to you my friends,
Today the Lord is really putting it on my heart that I need to spend more time just playing with and enjoying my children. He has been convicting me in this area for a little while but really so during the last couple days. I have been guilty of getting caught up in my own things and letting them to their own things as well. Now, of course they are always nearby and I can monitor them for their own safety but that isn't the same as spending time with them. I need to make a conscious effort today to just have fun with them. I think maybe we will make some cookies later, play a board game, read some books and they can help me with the laundry and just a real quick pick up of the house. I need to strengthen those bonds we have and create an even deeper, loving relationship between all of us. I don't think that just because children become teenagers that they have to have a bad relationship with their parents and I intend to do all I can to insure that doesn't happen around here.
What do you do to have fun with your children? How do you make sure you are actually reaching their hearts and building those bonds with them?
