February 2020 Everyday Faith Calendar

The last thing that anyone wants to read right after the beginning of the new year is any kind of post about setting a goal or resolution, picking a word, or setting an intention. Conversations and social media become saturated with this language. While some people thrive off of conquering or mastering a goal, other people can be easily overwhelmed by the thought of even starting to come up with anything “new” this year.

Over this past summer, I potty trained my firstborn. In preparation for this, I read books and consulted my mom and other friends who had gone before me in taking on this same task. The plan was to spend three days at home near the bathroom until we figured everything out. At the time, we were in the middle of moving and living temporarily in a mostly carpeted apartment rental. The only non-carpeted areas of the apartment were the kitchen, eating, and bathroom areas. Our three days were going to be spent camped out in our kitchen and eating areas exclusively. Those three days were so hard for everyone. The learning curve for my toddler, my husband, and myself was significant.

Two years ago, on Christmas morning, my husband posted a picture on social media of us with his family in front of a Christmas tree. The picture was well received and “liked” by many friends. The tree we were standing in front of was in his parents’ church. The whole family—siblings, spouses, and children—was together for Christmas. What’s not to love when you see a picture like that?

Near my house, there is a hiking trail that is relatively flat and very easy to hike with my two young children. It is less than one mile in length and makes a nice circle that is simple to follow. Hiking is probably a generous term for this area, but we rarely complete this loop. There are large rocks to climb at the entrance to the trail and the path itself is comprised of very tiny rocks that my children love to constantly stop and touch.

The Fruit of the Spirit is a common lesson in Sunday School and religion classes. Children sing the catchy little song, recite the fruits in order, and then ask if "kindness" is available in a fruit cup they can put in their lunch bag.

The Book of Proverbs is known for its wise sayings about faith and life here on earth. We get nuggets of wisdom like Proverbs 1:7, where we’re instructed on the difference between those who fear the Lord and those who don’t:

February 2019 Everyday Faith Calendar

Growing up as the oldest of six children, I can remember many occasions where my dad would start a family devotion at the dinner table only to have it interrupted by someone spilling milk, touching the person sitting next to them, needing to get up and go to the bathroom at that exact moment—you get the idea. The important part of that memory is that I saw my parents prioritize time together as a family in God’s Word, even when it was messy and difficult.
