You know, many times in life we as the parents are always on the go!  We have yard work, house work, home projects, and a plethora of other things that always need to be accomplished.  But how many times do your kids want you to stop and play with them?  If your house is anything like mine, it is constantly!

That is where we as the parents need to STOP and PLAY!  We need not to worry so much what others think about the way our house looks, how dirty our car may be, or if the yard is manicured to perfection.  Those things will be there after the chance you had to play with your kids are gone.  There are only a few chances that we as parents will get to enjoy with our kids.  Just to see how many, check out this app from Orange that will let you put in your kids graduation date (or other important dates) and let you see how many weekends, days, hours, minutes and seconds you have left.  Once you see it, I think you will be shocked!

Here are a few things that you can do with you kids over the next days, weeks, or months.  Pick out a few and go for it.  Be a kid with your kids for a bit and have some fun, not only will you build a bond with your kids, but memories will also be built that will last longer than fresh cut grass!

Till next time, keep loving on the kids!

Steve Blackston,
Children’s Pastor
