I'm really enjoying these school holidays... it's really nice to have the chance to spend days just finishing projects, play games etc. I'm not saying that I don't like schoolwork, in fact, it is quite the contrary -I enjoy the times of schedule and challenges that the term brings! However, it is really lovely to have a break from the normal routine just to pursue all those little jobs and extras that we never find the time to finish. These times are the ones that we remember most, the days that we look back on as having been the fun memorable times.
Here is a quote from Janette Oke: "Don't ever let yourself get so busy that you miss those little but important extras in life -the beauty of a day... the smile of a friend... the serenity of a quiet moment alone. For it is often life's smallest pleasures and gentlest joys that make the biggest and most lasting difference."
The holidays are a wonderful opportunity to take a step back and spend time doing something that you wouldn't normally do. May the Lord bless you these holidays and may you use this time for His glory.
"Thou crownest the year with thy goodness..." -Psalm 65:11a
