Summer at last. We have few engagements and fewer ambitions during these hot, long days. Our choice is to play, to lounge, to read, to think. It seems mundane, but slowing the pace allows for a more pronounced choice to love your family better. The favorite part of our day is morning devotions together. We love that because it is the foundation for the day and helps keep us focused on what is right and important. Otherwise our focus can be lost to obscurity with mundane days. There is a great opportunity in the lazy days of summer to refresh the soul and just have fun together as a family. We can all use a dose of boredom to have time to sort out our plans for the upcoming days and months and years and get some old fashioned playing done together. After God, family is that which matters most. It is beautiful to just pause the year and live life. Our goal is to keep it simple and enjoy it.
