Catching my breath...

I love dawn.  I think it is my absolute favorite time of day.  The day is new, a fresh start.  Coffee brewing. House quiet. I'm the only one awake - that's the best ever! 

It has been so long.  Jack and Em were only 11 months apart, so Jack slept through the night for one month before Em was born.  Then, it was time to start over with a newborn.  I think Em slept through the night 4 months or so before Zeke was born.  So, there was that.  But, it feels like forever and finally Zekey is sleeping through the night, and this means that I can set the alarm for 5:00 a.m....

From 5:00 to 6:00 is my favorite hour of the day.  I sip my coffee in almost complete confidence that I will not be disturbed.  I seek God's face through prayer, His word, IF videos, and books that feed my soul.  Zeke has been sleeping through the night, most nights, for the past two weeks, and I already feel like a new woman.  I start the day feeling like rested and ready.  Each morning as I fumble in the dark to find my slippers and robe and then slowly make my way down the dark hall to the kitchen, I thank Jesus over and over for a full night of sleep and the ability to rise early to meet with Him!  Such a gift!

I am finally catching my breath, finding time to do a few things I enjoy like writing, reading, and exercising.  Thank You, Jesus!!  My heart is so full of gratitude!!

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
