“I can’t do it because of work.”
Have you ever thought that?
Or “the timing is awful, so this can wait”
This past weekend my 8-year old son and I had the opportunity to do a Father/Son trip with Crossroads Church and it was incredible.
However, the timing was awful.
💥My wife and two daughters had been out of town for a week and just got home
💥I was so far behind in work due to single parenting for a week (I’m not used to it)
💥I am in the middle of a 30-day challenge that I am leading numerous leaders
💥I have a big project with a nearing deadline
So the timing was not ideal.
However, I knew I had to go.
Work could wait.
Bonding with one of my kids could not.
I am so grateful we went.
💥no electronics for a few days
💥conversations with each other
💥seeing him lead others
💥deep talks and praying together
💥shooting BB guns, playing with knives
💥singing worship songs together
💥being prayed for
The list goes on.
👉So now I have been back a few days.
My work is still here. Work is still the same.
Emails are still in the inbox. My clients are still here.
However, my son and I are different.
We grew closer to each other, closer to others, and closer to God.
So, how can you make time for a one-on-one trip with each of your kids?
The work can wait.
The investment into our kids cannot.
