Each Monday I am posting one question – just one – for us to consider together.  Read about it here – One Question

Nothing fancy here – just a question for us to ponder.   I realized I’ve been asking the questions, but not sharing my responses…. so, I’m starting that today!

What’s the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year?

Be intentional.  I want to be more intentional about the time we spend together.  I want us to experience life together, love God together, pray together and love each other.  To do this I must be more intentional about family.

We are just a few months from becoming empty nesters and grand parents — our baby girl goes off the college in August and our first grandbaby is due in September.  It’s a fascinating time of life, but it’s also one that makes me realize how quickly seasons of life truly are.   I want to grab hold of these days and make them last.  To make this happen, I’ll be more intentional about what it means to be a family.

Read it, pray over it, journal it (if that’s your thing), write it on an index card  and, this is the most important part, answer it.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the questions and please share your answers if you would like, but no pressure.

Lord, give us the will to continue to seek Your face and desire Your will only!
