i have been getting back in the habit of being
"early to bed" and "early to rise".
most of the time when i am up early,
i am the only one.
but about 15 minutes into my quiet time this morning
i was joined by my 5-year-old son.
i quietly explained that i was spending time with God,
so if he was going to be downstairs
he would have to be quiet.
then he told me "i have to get my notebook
so that i can write to God".
so this is how we spent those early morning moments.
yesterday morning just before breakfast,
my kids hauled out their devotionals
(we used to read them every morning)
and told me "we have to do our devotions."
to see the Lord moving their hearts
fills my heart with indescribable joy.
