It's Friday, Yay! I'm not sure about you, but I love the school holidays; I can sleep in a bit longer, there is less of a crazy rush in the mornings and, best of all, I get to spend some extra time with my children.
I have four children, and they are now all at school full-time, which is very exciting, but it also means I don't get to see them during the day anymore.
You see, I am blessed to be able to have my business office in the Main Street of Healesville, and so I am often able to pop home for lunch.
Don't get me wrong, it is lovely to be able to spend my lunch hour with my beautiful wife, but in the school holidays, I also get to see my children, and this I love!
In saying this though, a relationship is a two-way thing...
If my children simply shut themselves in their bedrooms all day and didn't care less if I came home for lunch or not, my endeavours would be pointless.
I could come home all excited to see them and ready to spend some quality time with them, but if they were not interested, it wouldn't mean anything.
God wants desperately for you and I to be as excited about spending time with Him as He is excited about spending time with us.
Maybe these school holidays are actually a chance for you to have lunch with God and spend some quality time with Him?
James 4:8 says:
'Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you'
