‘Yay’ for Father’s Day!

So Father’s Day’s coming . . . Yay! A day to celebrate your dad 🙂 So what plans do you have going?

Are you surprising him with a special breakfast or dinner? A picnic in the park or playing a little golf? Whatever you’ve dreamed up, I’m sure he’ll love it. I know you’ll have fun!         

But maybe your dad’s in heaven and no longer with you . . . or maybe you never see him, and things aren’t the best. If so, just think . . . without your earthly father you wouldn’t even be here, so how about just talking to him and working things out . . . I’m sure he’d like that, and God would want that, too. And if you’re a bit hesitant, just listen to God, and He’ll tell you what to do. But also remember, God’s your heavenly father who loves you, and He’s always with you, too 🙂

Exodus 20:12 says, “Honor your father and mother so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” So how about doing just that?! And while you’re at it, how about telling him all that you love about him and giving him a huge hug. And if your dad’s in heaven, let the Lord comfort you as you cherish sweet memories, knowing He’s with you, too.

So have a Happy Father’s Day, and hope your day’s great!

Summer Dreams Plan B

Hey, tween girls!

So how’s it been going with this pandemic going on??? It’s sure changed things a bit, with home-school for all, family lock-downs, and no time with friends . . . Wouldn’t you agree?

Now that summer’s here, maybe your family vacation’s been called off, or no summer camp or fun days at the pool . . . The good news is things are easing up, so looks like you’ll soon be able to get with your friends, just smaller groups . . . still keeping those hands clean, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying farther apart, right?

But are you still disappointed it’s changed your summer plans or those you’ve dreamed up in months past? If so, how about coming up with ‘Summer Dreams Plan B’?

How about sitting under your favorite shade tree and making a list? Here are some ideas for you . . .

  • Bar-b-ques
  • Picnics
  • Summer sleep-overs
  • Movie nights
  • Doing karaoke and singing favorite songs
  • Cooking up yummy treats or fun summer salads
  • Fun family hikes
  • Riding your bike
  • Journaling your thoughts and feelings
