Combining Worship and Vacation + A Happy Dance

As Followers of Christ, we are called out to worship in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24)!  It's part of our very identity.

Not just in church on Sunday...
Not just during our individual time in The Word...
Not just when we tune into the Christian radio station on our commute to work...

all. the. time.  

A life that is truly saturated in His love and Word cannot help but leak out into a lifestyle of worshipping Him. 

We're all human though and sometimes that means we put our "worship" on the back-burner when life gets busy or we store it up on a shelf when we have other plans that need attention.  As we wrap up summer and blast forward into Labor Day Weekend, many families are squeezing in last minute vacation plans.  In the shuffle of suitcases and searching Google Maps for the best travel route, our worship of the Almighty can often take a back seat.  However, to take a break from worship is the equivalent of saying you're going to take a break from being "you."  When we pack up the car and roll out of the driveway with our family in tow, we haven't put our role as a parent, spouse, or friend on hold.  Our adoration of Jesus and the way that manifests itself in our hearts and lives shouldn't take a break either!

Today, I'm over at Must Love God, sharing five keys ways to "pack up" your family's worship time and incorporate it into the details of your vacation!  Click on over to read more and come interact with this great community in the comment section!


Happy Dance Time!  
Last week, I posted about some of the changes coming to Chasing-Eden 
and the opportunity to apply for a scholarship for Jo Klima's design workshop, Your Darling Blog!

Last night, I hopped on Twitter before dinner and...this is what I saw...

SQUEE!  Thank you to all my sweet friends who emailed, texted, and prayed for me to have this opportunity!  
I'm ridiculously excited and can't wait to get started!  God is SO good!
