A Moment In Time

As I sit here this morning listening to the sound if the rain outside, breastfeeding my baby, I am filled with a peace and joy that is hard to explain.

Have you ever had a moment like that? A moment where things are still and quiet, where you are able to reflect on the things inside you and around you. A moment where you can hear The Lord tell you that He loves you?

As a mom, these moments don’t happen all of the time. I have to create moments like this. What do I mean?

Well, it’s 6:45am. That’s right! I’m up before my kids…and I’m doing nothing.

We had our prayer call this morning and I was encouraged to walk in love. Now I am preparing myself mentally for my day.

As mothers we are needed dearly by our children. Yet we can’t be what they need us to be, if we aren’t ok. We have to find out what it takes for us to be well, at peace within ourselves and to have joy.

That may mean having quiet time during the day, a bit just for mom, but for the kids too. I am finding that this idea of quiet time is new for many moms. Outside of nap time, there is no quiet, personal, alone time for both the children and the mom. Yet, this is how I have learned to stay healthy.

Quiet time is good for both mom or dad and the children.

We have to decide when and how to do it.

This is how I am doing it today. Sitting, listening to the rain…experiencing the peace if God within me.

I hope that you find time to have a quiet moment today.

Working On My Sweater

Back in November, I headed to my local yarn shop to buy some yarn. I saw one of the clerks wearing a sweater that I thought was beautiful. As she and I discussed sweater making, she told me that she had actually made the sweater that she was wearing. Thrilled to hear that she had […]
