Isn't it great to know that God hears our voice each and every morning? Is our voice one of peace and relaxation? Or, is it peppered with anxiety and worry? God encourages us to lay our burdens at His footstool each day--maybe several times a day in order to receive that peace. Have you been to the Lord this morning?
While on vacation, a slower paced morning meant that I had plenty of time to spend with God before the day began. I could read my devotionals, spend time in the Bible and journal my prayers without hearing the clock ticking to remind me of another carpool session. It was lovely!
We spent hours on the beach digging holes!! And playing in them, and re-digging the next day after the tides had washed away our tunnels and army trenches.
We had time to leisurely stroll down to a creek and see the alligator pop out of the murky green water in expectation of a late afternoon snack!!! (No, not the kids!! Just cheese crackers!!)
Time--it was on our side! As I type this, I have already taken the boys and myself to cross country practice (I ran with some of the newbie young girls--they were precious!). We then drove to swim team practice. I ran again--at my pace and with my ipod and lost myself in my "She Speaks" talk that is coming up in 30 days!! Now, it's almost 11:00, and I still haven't had my entire quiet time. But, it is still morning, and the heat outside is still on "low!" I plan on sneaking out to my back porch and laying my requests before my God and King while it's still morning--dirty running clothes and all!
Y'all have a beautiful day! BTW, the little boy in the photo is my nephew--he's a trip! Love that child!
