For us Christians, Sunday, is without any doubt associated with Church. It is the day of our Lord. It is also a day where families spend more time together and relax. Time passes quickly and before we know it, we have to start planning and preparing for the week ahead. But families should not let this special day go without having a ‘together time in the presence of the Lord’. Maybe not all family members, especially young children, understand the importance of such time. Many distractions may arise, who wants to eat, who wants to sleep etc, so sometimes, yes, it can be exhausting to settle around the table and give this time a good start. If you have tried to allocate such time, with no success, you are not alone! But consistency and keeping on reminding all family members that it is soon time for the devotion, helps everyone to settle in. This time can include prayers of thanksgiving as well as prayers for the week to come, worship music or an age related sing- along for younger kids. A short bible story can be read by the parents. Older children can read a few verses or share a thought. The Church bulletin can be read at this time or a few points from the sermon can be shortly discussed and prayed upon. There is no need to keep it long especially for the sake of young children, but ending Sundays this way, bonds the family and gives a good kick start to the new week. Then, treat yourself and your family with a delicious sweet and warm drink. Why not? Practicing this, week after week, you will find yourself addict, but make sure that your addiction is for the ‘together time in the presence of the Lord’ and not for the sweet treat.
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 11:18-19

PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION At this time, we are obliged to stay in our homes as for the COVID 19 virus pandemic. One might have noticed how this social distancing is keeping us away from each other in a particular manner and perspective. Having little children, one can observe that it is hard for them to understand how visiting our loved ones is not right, and it is for one's safety not to hug and embrace each other. Shall we pray that our children are always taught to keep a safe distance from the world and what it offers? Let us pray that our children know that what harms them is not foreseeable but can be transmitted through spending time with the wrong people.
Normally people would choose luxury over want, but what is more important is love. Many people have found that a home where material possessions are few but love for each other is present is far better than a house of great wealth where people hate each other. Love makes one's difficult circumstances endurable, whereas hatred undoes all the enjoyments that good food might. otherwise bring.

WOL Marriage Devotion
Proverbs 15:17 has nothing to do with being a vegan or not. It is essential to understand that in biblical times, eating vegetables was the typical meal for most people. The fattened ox was served for the rich or special occasions. The Holy Spirit is showing us important comparisons: poverty (having a mere meal of vegetables) with prosperity (a fattened calf).
Reflection : What do you prefer in your marriage, a lifestyle of moderation according to one’s status with peace and love , or the craving of riches that destroys the peace of the home?
 Better is a dish of vegetables where love is Than a fattened ox served with hatred.  Proverbs 15:17
