Morning

I love the morning!

For a few reasons....

~ the day is new, fresh, clean. Nothing has happened yet. It's like a new beginning!
~ the birds are singing (very loudly sometimes!)
~ the sun is streaming through the windows. So bright and cheerful!
~ the smell of just brewed coffee
~ the quiet moments before kids get up where I can spend prayerfully thinking of my day.

There are more reasons than that, but those were the ones I could put into words. The others are just feeling, kind of.

I love being able to sit down with my coffee and have my quiet time. Whether it be to read something, listen to something or just prepare for the day ahead. It helps me to think about how I am to be as a mom & a wife. I reflect on things that I need to change and prayerfully ask for help in changing those things!

This is what the morning helps me to do. Focus. On God, my family, my heart.

I say I am a morning person. Not because I love to wake up at a certain time, but because of what I am able focus on when I get up at that time.

(I feel like I could have written the following verse. God is so awesome!)

Psalm 25:4-5 (NLT)
" Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you."

One of my favorite things in the world is sleeping with the windows open and waking up to the birds singing in the morning! I always seem to remember the verse, "His eye is on the sparrow." And I know that if God concerns himself for them so much, how much more does he care for me? Could you spirit be any more peaceful than at that moment?
