I was pretty cool and exciting to see my name in the magazine, but then I paused for a moment and thought - nothing will ever be compared to the joy that will fill those hearts who will see their name in the eternal book of God! It will be beyond every imagination... And that's the book I want my name in!
I believe you can turn almost any everyday activity into a mini-vacation, if you put your mind to it. This past Labor Day we did just that. I wanted one of the bookcases for our kids room from Ikea, so we got up early in the morning and went on our mini trip.
We got there just a couple of minutes before store opening. Ikea restaurant serves FREE breakfast every Monday. How nice is that? That's where we started our "shopping":
And did some shopping. Kids loved checking all of their decorated rooms. I did too. My husband thought there's more interesting stuff in the world than this, but he was pretty patient with us.
