Twenty-five years ago I was honored to join Les Schwab as a speaker at my high school graduation. The location was the Crook County Fairgrounds, aptly named the “Cow Palace”, as you always made sure to watch your step. While Les Schwas has since passed on, and the “Cow Palace” has been replaced with a new high school, senior graduation continues on at high schools around the country. At the recent Crosshill Christian Class of 2019 Senior Graduation, we celebrated the lives and achievements of twenty seniors as they were commissioned to the next season in their lives. During the ceremony with standing room only, I couldn’t help but reflect on the tremendous responsibility God has entrusted to us. The spiritual formation of these seniors is a direct result of the deliberate input of parents, teachers, and friends.
With about 90 days of the school-free summer season upon us, God continues to trust us as parents. Later bedtimes, swimming, and road trips may all be part of the equation of spending quality and quantity of time with our children. Deuteronomy 11:19 reminds us how the routine time spent with our children is precisely when God’s truths are transferred to them. Take some time to ponder and pray what experiences and growth are a priority for your family this summer, and then develop a plan to ensure those goals are met by the end of August. Time is one of the few non-renewal resources we have, and it goes fast.
Here is a short list of resources that my family and other families in the Crosshill community have utilized to promote and enrich our daily summer activities.
