Pitch it, Yard Sale it, or Store It?

I love the end of the school year and the beginning of summer. Now is the time for me to catch up on all that stuff that has been bugging me for months but I just could not get to.

Maybe it says something about my personality, but I find great pleasure in lightening my load by clearing things out.

Not that I don't enjoy all the blessings that come our way....but sometimes too much is no longer a blessing. It has somehow become a weight.

As I have been tackling this project in my natural environment the Holy Spirit has been nudging me about my spiritual environment.

This morning our family enjoyed a fruitful time of prayer casting off some of the weights and worries and stresses that had entangled us.

College decisions, end of year studies, relationship disappointments, and financial pressures. It was time. We needed to pitch them on the Lord and clean out our minds (1 Peter 5:7)

So how about you?  Do you need to do some house cleaning and drop some junk in the natural....as well as the spiritual?

Are your kids looking for the freedom of summertime but weighed down with cares of this world?

We as Frontline Parents must help our families maintain order. Our kids are looking to us to learn how to manage our lives so that peace and order drive out stress and chaos. Why not let the Lord start with us.....today??
