Making Time for the Important Things

Our families are what matters most!

Do you ever just take the time to think about those around you? Do you really spend the one on one time you need to with them so that they know that they really matter to you? Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day activities, that we forget to just stop and spend time with the ones God gave us. 

Our spouse needs us to just stop and show them that we care, our children need that one on one time that helps them to see they are appreciated and loved, our family needs us. It's time for us to take the challenge and stop being so busy that we can't really love and spend time with the ones who need us most.

A few ways to spend time together:

Family game night
Take a walk together
Sit around and take turns sharing what is on your heart
Start a hobby as a family
Do the chores together 
Go out to eat together 

I challenge you all today to really make time for each other because everyday isn't promised, enjoy the moments that you have together, every day is a gift.

What is something you can add to this list? What can you do to spend more time together as a family?

Be Blessed,

Stay positive, even in the rain

When being strong fails just hang onto the one who is strong, God!

You know the saying when it rains, it pours, well that has been my life for the last month. So much has been going on and I feel like I just can't catch my breath. A few weeks ago, my husband was working and cut his right thumb almost off on a table saw, but God had His hand on him because they were able to save it and although it will be a long process of no work and surgeries, it could have been worst. A few other situations have been going on that I won't go into detail about, it seems life has just been hounding us and the devil has been trying to just bring us down. I apologize for not being here encouraging you all, but I felt like how can I encourage when I am feeling so down. I know God has his hands on us even though we don't know what the future holds but I will hold to His promises, His will is always better than ours. He is my positive in the midst of this negative season.

I am learning through these trials to dance in the rain and be content with where I am. So much is happening that I don't understand but I know God has a plan. I am slowing gaining my organization and planning back that had just gone haywire. I am using my schedule I found from Darlene at Time-Warp Wife, you can get it here: It is simple and so easy to do. I hope you all are having a fabulous summer! We are going on Vacation this weekend and it is most definitely needed.

What do you do when hard times come? How do you cope when it feels the devil is beating you down?

Be Blessed,

Regina Cozad
