The days are long and hard lately. We wake up with a list of things that must be done that day, and the evenings are as full as the mornings. Teaching the kids how to work hard even when they don’t feel like it is one of the most important jobs we have. And we often struggle ourselves with it ourselves. Adding simple rituals to our days tend to make them easier to get through. Time in the pool, reading under the tree, 10 minute naps. And lately our favorite is fresh peach salsa each night. It’s sweet, salty, and a little spicy!
a pinch of salt and a drizzle of honey
On our schedules this week was cleaning out all the yellow tubs for taking the tomatoes to market. Combining it with pool time made our work a little sweeter!
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
~Colossians 3:23-24 (NKJV).
