Back to School Family Home Evening

Tomorrow Mikey starts 7th grade, Josh 5th, and Hannah 3rd. In one week Lizzy will start Kindergarten. Amanda and I decided to hold a short family home evening. Josh read 1st Samuel 16:7. We talked about how the Prophet Samuel was looking for the next King and how he learned that’s the Lord doesn’t care about how we look on the outside but the inside. We likened this to how there will be all sorts of different kids at school and we should not judge them based on how they look or what they wear but instead try to see them how God sees them and love them as God loves them. We then had Hannah read Matthew 11:28-30. We discussed how Christ took upon Him all of our heartache and pain, our sorrow and our stress, as well as our sins during the atonement and that we can put all of this on Him and accept in return His yoke, His burden, which is to love each other and follow His commandments.

We finished Family Home Evening with each kid getting a Father’s Blessing.

Where does the time go?

Its July 22, 2018. Let that sink in for a minute. 20-years ago it was just a few weeks before my senior year of high school. 14-years ago, my wife and I had been married just a few months. 10-years ago we were in the beginnings of what is now called “The Great Recession”. 5-years ago, our youngest child, Lizzy, was just about ready to be born. 1-year ago, my family moved to Southern Utah (I stayed in Southern Nevada for a few more months for work).

I need to be better at valuing each day because that day will never happen again.
