Taking a Family Break
July 09, 2010
Hi there! ....

This week I am taking a break to be with my family. No blogging, no facebook and no newsletter. It has been a busy time for us and we have a busy time ahead of us so we are looking forward to this week where we just focus on being a family together.

If you are looking for something to read though my I suggest these links:

Relationships first This is a core page from my website.

This week I shared a thought with my Facebook group: Our priorities need to be God, Family,Others. That seems simple enough and we get busy for God thinking we have it all in right order but God is a God of relationships. Our priorities need to be our relationship with God, our relationship with our family, our relationship with others – then comes the things we ‘do’ like programmes, homeschooling, ministry etc. Our relationships must come first.

I have only written once on my blog this week and it talks about our change of focus for July.

Until next week....
