Hi, everyone! You can find activities to do with your kids after the content below.
“That’s true love – when you have to lean on somebody,” my dad told me as he recalled a tough time. The Stock Market Crash of 1987.
He was tough as nails and thought he’d be fine. But, ten days later, he couldn’t hold it together. He realized that we all have a breaking point. And this was his.
He walked into the bedroom and looked at my mom, tears fighting to let loose, and said: “Dianne, I don’t know if I can get through this.”
The worry pulled the tears from his eyes.
My mom put her arms around him and said, “I don’t care about a car or house. I care about spending the rest of my life with you and the kids.”
What a woman of strength my mom is.
My dad told me, “Linsey, that is true love. When you have to lean on somebody.”
Those surrounding you right now, closest to you, lean on them. And, let them lean on you. We all have our breaking points and we all need each other.
And, lean on Jesus.
Whatever worries are consuming you, give them to Jesus because he cares for you.
Seasons do come to an end and new ones begin.
We will get to a new season soon, but in the meantime, lean on Jesus and lean on one another.
Because that is love. ❤️

Some activities to do with your kids this week!
1. Create a town of stores with chalk and have fun visiting them with scooters. They had fun imagining and pretending!
2. Create textured Art. Bring a small bag with you to collect items on a walk. Glue the items down to create a picture of textured art.
3. Create an ice land. Fill different-sized pans with water and add a few drops of food coloring to add color. Freeze them over night. The next day, take the ice shapes out of the pans by using warm water or pulling the pan apart slightly from the ice. Put them in a large, container that has low sides. Our cups of crushed or regular ice around them. Put little figurines to play with in there. Then, add some cornstarch on top of parts of it to look like snow. As the ice melts, it will create ooblek (slime). I got this activity from the great book, 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids.
Have a great week! I’m praying for you. ❤️
