Another Monday, another look at the planner and calendar to see what we can include in our homeschooling week. March 18th is marked with three special event days. The first is “Awkward Moments Day”. We have those everyday, so nothing much to celebrate with this.
The second is “Napping Day”. Yes, really. This is more than fine with me. I’m thinking about 1:00 will be perfect for celebrating this one. I might even put on pj’s. My teenagers will more than likely claim this one in the morning when I try to get them up and out of bed, and I can imagine the younger boys reminding me , “But it’s nap day”, when I say it’s time for chores.
The other special day on the 18th is “Forgive Mom and Dad Day”. Around my house, this needs to be done everyday, some days several times. I cannot fathom the hurt and anger and bitterness that would bind up my kids if they only forgave me once a year.
Luke 6:37 “If you do not judge others, then you will not be judged. If you do not find others guilty, then you will not be found guilty. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
“Forgive and you will be forgiven”. That’s the thing that will make the 18th and all the rest of our days special.
