Important Events this Summer

Happy summer! We just returned from a beach vacation with our son and his family. I haven’t had a truly relaxing vacation in several years and thoroughly enjoyed the long lazy days. I particularly relished my morning Bible study with the sound of waves crashing on the beach in the background.  Reading Psalms while watching the waves on a balmy day and as Hurricane Arthur approached brought a deep appreciation of God as creator. My husband and I walked along the beach with our two year old granddaughter and thanked God for the sand, shells, ocean, seagulls, wind, and sun!

I hope your family is finding God in unexpected ways and places this summer. I hope you find time to fulfill scripture with your family as you go about your daily tasks. If I can offer advice to you, it is to have conversations about the things of God throughout the day, every day, with your family.  In the remaining weeks of summer, please don’t get so busy you miss attending church.  Make a commitment to keep your family involved in worship with other believers each week.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all you soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Deuteronomy 6: 5-7
