"Don't follow what's with you, follow what's in you."
*Our girls love taking colored cardstock and making crafts. In our classroom I have some plastic drawers that have nothing but stickers, paper, and various craft supplies for them to use any time they want to. They come up with some pretty neat stuff and usually make decorations for whatever holiday is coming up.
(You can get the cardstock at Hobby Lobby when it is 50% off or use the 40% off coupon this week! Click HERE)
*A few years ago when we went to Disney World I made each girl a personalized folder with coloring sheets and activity pages that I had printed off for the road trip. I also took a random toy that they had not played with in a long time and put it in a small brown paper sack and stapled the top. Then every 100 or so miles I'd let them open up a new "surprise" (old) toy! They loved it! I threw in some brand new toys that I had picked up at the dollar store for added excitement!
*When they were younger I would pull crafts off of the DKLT.com website! This is a great free site that has TONS of cool crafts and coloring sheets. Another website I love is Danielle's Place!
Have a blessed weekend!!!
They held the workshop at a church out in the country and the little creek right beside the church is absolutely beautiful.
Or if you have the extra $$$ you could pay for their groceries! Buy a gift card and go back into the store and find someone you can tell is struggling with choices and few items in their cart and give them the gift card.
Clip coupons (preferably free ones) and randomly hand them out while shopping. Or even lay them on the items they belong to. We do this at Hobby Lobby all the time! I love the look on people's faces when I hand them that 40% off coupon!!!
Hand out waters to runners you see on the road. Especially the ones that are drenched in sweat.....ha!
Have your children write/make special thank you notes for our men and women in the armed forces and buy a gift card to attach to them. When you randomly see one out in public give them a thank you card!
I have a diamond wrap that Brian gave me our second Christmas after we were married, but the band broke this past winter and I have yet to get it fixed. But I love the simplicity of a simple band and engagement ring too!
Here are a few scriptures that are beneficial to marriages:
“So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”
"So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing."
"Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is that Head, that is, Christ."
1 Corinthians 13:5
"Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking; it is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs."
