Another ordinary day.

Well, Easter has been and gone for another year but if you believe in the Risen Jesus then you would be celebrating this day every day.

This year we didn’t travel anywhere. We had the best time as a family and the special part was the TIME we had together. We didn’t spend heaps of money on accommodation but we walked 20 metres out our back door, set up a tent and camped for the night. Well….Ollie and myself did. Lisa and Matilda slept in the comfort of their own beds. We cooked damper over the fire and had pancakes for breakfast the next morning.537306_232411976897557_248400846_n

All of this was the most simplistic of Easter week ends.

The video clip below was posted on Fathering Adventures Facebook page. I watched it just after packing away all of our camping gear. When I stopped and watched, the last 24 hours came flooding back into my mind and heart. My eyes started welling up when I thought of the fun, the smiles, the love shown to one another, through simply living with a loving wife and kids.

This clip topped off a fantastic 4 days spent together with family. Take a look and be thankful for the ordinary days you spend together with the people closest to you.

Share in the comments below, what you cherished most about your Easter weekend.

    Thanks, Luke, for that bit of inspiration.
    I remember some good times I had with my family by the Upper Cedar Creek just camping for a day, frying some slices of potato on an iron plate over the fire. Wow! said my little daughter Rachel after trying the finished BBQ chips: Daddy you can make chips from potato! Precious.
    God, help us to treasure our precious moments always.
