Saturday night I couldn't sleep. I woke up around 3, and by 4 I was tired of just laying there, so I headed to the kitchen. I made a pot of coffee and spent precious time alone ~ only I wasn't alone...
It was pure peace to my soul ~ the quiet, the coffee, and Jesus, sweet time with Jesus. As I sat there in my dimly lit kitchen in the wee hours of the morning, I poured my heart out to God. And, after a little while, I scribbled this down in my journal...
I will choose freedom and joy.
I will move more slowly and think more deeply.
I will not compare.
I will be content.
I will not hurry my loves.
I will be patient.
I will focus on each precious child ~ encouraging him, praising him ~ seeing the good, the natural gifting of God in him. And, I will seek to grow these things for God's glory.
I will be mindful and thankful. I am so blessed.
I will attempt to make learning fun and practical.
I will not look to the left or the right ~ but only look into the eyes of my Savior.
