Early Morn

I woke up early this morning to a very quiet, not moving house. It's hard to find quiet moments during the daytime, especially when you live in a shoe.

A small shoe.


During the school year, it's easy for me to find those quiet moments...but during the summer, not so much. I am NOT complaining. I love the chaos that summer brings, but more than that...I love having everyone home.

It's a pretty fun house.

But I've been feeling a bit out of it lately and have been struggling to keep up. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, driving...it's hard to keep up. Normally I take everything in stride, but lately I've been feeling like I am a hamster on a wheel. Always moving, but never going anywhere.

So I made the most of the quiet. I made myself a cup of tea, slipped into a chair in my backyard, and opened my Bible to this verse:

In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.
Isaiah 30:15

He knows my heart so well! I realized that I have been neglecting my time with God. My quiet time. I was slowly starting to weaken and not hold it all together, but by spending a few minutes of my day ALONE with Him, He will give me the strength to be the wife and mom that I was made to be.

What a blessing!
