I love the weekends! We celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday; which is a whole day of family fun, rest, and worship. On Sunday, we usually check-off a task on our "to do" list, and then fellowship with other believers at church.
But, every good thing must come to an end. And to me, "the end" is Sunday night. I look around the house, which by that point has gotten very messy, and I begin to dread Monday morning. I have a pretty structured cleaning schedule during the week, but I do the bare minimum during the weekend so that I can spend every spare minute with my family. So, on Mondays, I am usually greeted by a big mess!
Therefore, I invented the "Family 10 minute clean-up". On Sunday night, everyone is given a task to complete and we all get to work. With everyone working, we can clean up a lot in a little bit of time.
At the end, if we all worked hard, we gather to have dessert and pray for the week ahead as a family. The dessert offers motivation to the girls. It is such a nice way to end the weekend!
What about you? How do you prepare for the week ahead?
