I am excited to do the postings on each specified day. I believe in self-growth, spiritual growth, growth in parenting, and growth in marriage. I am devoted to growing in these areas of my life.
And I am stoked that it is finally Sunday! I love Sundays, especially now when I can attend church beings I won’t have a job conflict in less than a week. And thankfully, I have this Sunday off. Plus, it’s Father’s Day! Now I can get creative with different ways to show my husband how much the kids and I appreciate him.
But anywhooo…….since this day is set aside specifically for the Lord during church and at home, each Sunday will feature a prayer, a song to encourage growth in the Lord, and finally, a promise to keep within my family (husband and kids) that will promote growth in myself and in them OR act of kindness for someone outside of my family (preferably someone I am not on good terms with, but we will see how goes it) for me to accomplish over the course of the week. I will post in some way when I’ve completed the promise or act of kindness. 🙂
Prayer for the week:
Lord, bless our family, all of us now together, those far away, all who are gone back to you. May we know joy. May we bear our sorrows in patience. Let love guide our understanding of each other. Let us be grateful to each other. We have all made each other what we are. O Family of Jesus, watch over our family.
Devotional Song of the Week:
They’ll Know We Are Christians
Promise for the Week:
My first thought is to refrain from yelling at the kids. I’m not terrible about doing it, but every so often, I do. But, after careful consideration and the realization that I have been doing pretty well already with not yelling, I have decided my promise for this week is to make a conscientious effort to redirect ONE disagreement with my husband just through positive responses. Anyone who knows me knows this is going to be extremely hard for me because I react first and think later. I’ve been wanting to change the way I respond for a little while now so here’s my chance.
I just can’t get over how excited I am! I am hoping this will be just as encouraging for anyone who reads this as it’s going to be for me.
As always, please feel free to drop a line or two with kindness in heart. Even if one disagrees with me on something,, anything, one can still be nice.
I hope you all have a blessed day and hope to see you here again in a week.
