Sometimes family togetherness can get a bit smothering…so what’s a family to do?
I wish I had a bullet-proof plan. I don’t. But here are a few things I do…sometimes with more success than others.
1) Pray. God longs for our families to be places of peace. Which means our enemy wants the exact opposite. So be sure to pray for extra patience and grace. Need to stop and do that myself!
2) Mix things up. Have you gone to the pool six days in a row and it’s become blase? Then go to a park. Have a craft day. Come up with something different you can do and ask the kids for their ideas.
3) Remember you’re building memories. And often the things that drive us nuts aren’t even a tiny memory in a couple years.
Praying you’ll have peace in your houses. Do you have any tips to add? I’d love them!
