Somedays I fall into bed, tears streaming down my face, barely able to move from the toils of being mommy. To say that motherhood is demanding would be a huge understatement. Add the word “single” to that title and it’s no wonder that people let out a sigh of sadness when they meet me. BUT, this is about more than just surviving. It’s a God-given calling to train and disciple His precious souls for the kingdom. I’m not called to survive. I’m called to be victorious over my circumstances.
It is for victory that I must choose to be intentional in my moments. For in a blink, the moment will be gone. I don’t want to miss what God has for us.
Play in the rain
Repurpose items into fun toys
Have chocolate fondue for dinner
Take a walk
Have lunch UNDER the table
Lay in the grass and gaze at the clouds
Play with friends
Have a cupcake
Roll in the leaves
As we wrap up this series, I pray that you are leaving this week inspired and armed with ideas to act upon. Please DO NOT let this post fill your heart with regret over what you haven’t done. God redeems that past and we have freedom in choosing His way for our future. Let this be an inspiration for the next five minutes. Something intentional and meaningful that will last an eternity.
Your turn! Please share ways that you make memories with your kids.
