What is FAMILY TIME anyway?
·Webster defines Family as:
Parents and their Children; The members of one Household; A group of person’s related by blood or marriage.
·God defines Family as:
Joshua 24: 15b “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.”
Matthew 21:15a “My house will be called a house of Prayer.”
Eph 5:22-23 “Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is head of the church, his body, of which is the savior.”
Eph 5: 25 Husbands Love your wife just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her.”
Eph. 6:2 “Honor thy Father and Mother which is the first commandment with a promise.”
There are so many more but these are a few of my favorite! =)
- Make time for each person in the family, at least once a week, to talk with, laugh with, cry with or just relax with.
- Have a date night/day~Have a family night/day~Have a “DO NOTHING” time. It makes such a difference in your relationship~
- Also make time for yourself~once a week give yourself time to refresh and renew! It could be anything from a bubble bath, read a book, get coffee with the girls, or go shopping without the kids. This will help you recharge and feel good about the daily tasks you do.
Being a Family requires a continuous connection in relationships. Taking the good with the bad and the heartaches with the hugs. Being a Household of Faith is being a Family!
