Summer Daze, August Rush
I don't know about you, but perhaps this year more than any other, my summer has disappeared quickly before my very eyes. After all, we're less than three weeks away from school starting back. Yikes!
Our family truly cherishes summer, and we do our best to take advantage of the time off (well, for the kids, anyway). We let the kids to camps, Adventure Week at church, swim at the pool, and - of course - vacation! We work hard, but give every effort to play harder.
And, while we are often in a daze during the summer with all that's going on, it cranks up even more in the August rush. We are coasting along in fourth gear right now, but we'll go into overdrive in just a few weeks - both at work and with our kids' school activities.
So, with all that's going on, how in the world do you maintain balance? How do you squeeze it all in? Is there any way to prioritize things in such a way that you don't compromise your sanity or the time you invest in the lives of your family?
That's what we'll be talking about at NorthStar beginning August 10 with our sermon series entitled August Rush. We all have the petal to the metal. So, what we've got to do is look at what God has to say about our schedules, our priorities, our families, and our mental health as we navigate our way through the craziness.
I hope you'll be able to join us for August Rush, and see how God can clear up even the most muddled of pictures if you involve Him in all that you do!
