Welcome to my weekly feature, Ten Minute Tuesday, where I encourage you to take ten minutes to slow down and take in some music from one of my favorite Christian artists.

This week I am sharing “At Your Feet” by Casting Crowns.  Take some time for reflection……..

Take a few minutes and enjoy!

I am starting something new today, a series that will come every Tuesday with a video of a song that has touched my heart. Take the few minutes to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea, enjoy the video and let the words sink into your soul.

Please enjoy “Restless by Audrey Assad“.

I pray you will feel refreshed and renewed by the Lord’s touch. 🙂

“In the name of God, stop a moment. Cease your work, look around.” -Leo Tolstoy

How About a “Staycation”?

So this summer I have decided to institute at least one “Staycation” into our summer schedule.  Maybe you’ve heard the buzz going around about this concept?  You take a vacation from your work, but you don’t leave town!  Brilliant!

I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest complaints with vacations is that by the time I get everyone ready for the “vacation” and while we are on the “vacation” I am still doing all the cooking, laundry, and picking up after everyone that when I finally return home and the rest of my family has rested and relaxed – I need a “VACATION”.  Am I the only mom who feels this way?

I think this idea will be a great way to stay at home, find some down time in our schedule and enjoy time together just hanging out.  It will be great on our budget and I know it will be better for me – no packing, no extra grocery purchases – just the thought has me wanting to change our current planned vacations into “staycations.”  A “staycation” is the perfect combination of relaxation without spending a lot of money on hotels, food and tourist attractions.
