Spring Break 11

Despite what my daughter is telling people ...
"I homeschool, so I kind of have Spring Break all year long" ...
Our Spring Break is over.

I kind of made her pay for it and her schooling yesterday was a bit rough.
Ah well. She'll be fine!

Anyway, here's what our Spring Break looked like.

Park With Friends

NighTime Kickball Game With Our Leadership Team
We played kickball, the kids played in the dirt :)

Ultimate Frisbee Tournament

 (The winning team for the tourney)

Played A Lil Scrabble

We practiced our "Bieber Face"
You know, in case we ever see him. Haha. 

Danced In The Yard

Watched A Moon That Looked Smaller Than Normal From Our View :)

And We Rode In The Sunshine A Lot

Just To Be

In the midst of my business today I found myself thinking about my relationship with my husband. I thought of how nice it is to sometimes just sit in the same room with him.
No words being spoken.
No activities being planned.
No agenda.

I was jolted out of my thoughts
when I heard my daughter singing in her room.
She was singing
"I just want to worship You,
All my days.
I life my hands,
and give You praise.
I don't wanna stop.
I don't wanna stop.
I just want to worship you."

Now, I adore it when I hear my daughter sing.
Unknowing that I'm listening.
And Unashamed.

But as I said earlier,  her singing shifted my thoughts a bit.
And I began to think about my relationship with my heavenly Father.
How at times, I just want to sit with Him.
No words being spoken.
No agenda to my prayers.
No other thoughts on my mind.

And my heart song began to be
"I just want to BE with you,
All my days,
I lift my hands and give You praise.
I don't wanna stop.
I don't wanna stop.
I just want to BE with you."

So as I still heard the hum of the dishwasher,
the water filling up the washing machine,
kids playing in the other room ...
I decided just to be with my Father for right now.

How do you take time just to be with the Father?
