Happy Friday! Woohoo! I’m feeling like Friday actually means something since (for the summer) it is my husband’s day off work. Three cheers for summer adventures and/or laziness!
Here are a few things that I have all the heart eyes for this week…
1. This article, Moms: Let’s Stop Drinking the Kool-Aid, is spot-on for all the drama that we mamas can create as we try to control our kids health.
“Moms, it’s time to loosen our grips. It’s time to admit that perhaps we’ve boarded the wrong train – a train we thought would take us to better discernment, but has actually led to fear, anxiety, and judging one another. I’m talking about the mania surrounding our kids’ health. Whether it’s vaccines, essential oils, gluten, GMO’s, or epidurals, we’ve made ourselves susceptible to a very sneaky lie. Not a lie that these things are important and worth researching. (They are.) But it’s the lie that our number one priority as moms is our kids’ physical well-being, and that the physical elements of this world are our greatest enemy.”
SOOO good right? It is easier to switch our sunscreens than admit that our precious babes have deep-rooted sin issues and that we parents must do the hard work of guiding them to the feet of Jesus and praying they catch a vision for a life surrendered to Him. There is little room for selfishness and laziness in that kind of missional parenthood. But I think for me, deep down I like the mom-drama a bit and I like proving my point and I like knowing “I’m right” (or at least I’m not wrong), but we need to “flee from all this and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.” (2 Timothy 6:11)
Sorry to preach at you– but just such a good word and I’m definitely talking to myself here!
3. I saw these blush sunglasses on a blog somewhere and I love them. But I’m normally more of a $10 or less sunglasses gal….but maybe…? #lovedpinkbeforeitwasmillenialpink
4. I’ve been loving my Birkenstocks that I got earlier this spring. Cute and comfy! Since I’m pregnant this is a good time to be investing in quality accessories like sandals and sunglasses, right?! 😀
5. We’ve also been going to the beach or splash pad almost everyday because it’s hot and we can. The camp life can be hard at times, but there are definitely job perks!
So those are 5 things I’m loving this week! Hope you have an amazing end to the week and fabulous weekend!
Have any fun weekend plans? Do you prefer a lake, pool, or splash pad for summer fun?
