It's That Time of Year Again...

Vacation! It's coming! I can't believe it's that time of year again! We've finished school, are making lists, packing, and getting our toenails painted tomorrow (well, just the girls are doing that last part)! But one of the most important parts of our preparation the last few years has been to read and review CJ Mahaney's posts about serving your family on vacation.

It is so helpful to remind myself that our goal is to serve our family during this time! Last year I went with a nursing 2-month old and knew that it may not be the most 'fun' vacation for me but I prepared my heart to serve and that mindset helped me so much during that week. (And the fact that my husband served me as well).

The best part is that we are all together for vacation! I love spending time with my husband and kids and we get to do that for 9 days. This intentional time away is good for my soul! I will still be preparing food, washing clothes, and cleaning but I get to step out the door to the pool and the beach!

My prayer is that Brian and I will continue to point one another towards the cross and that we can exhibit Christlike service to our family this coming week!
