Each morning that I wake up in the dark and cool, I am renewed of my love for motherhood.
I sneak into the quiet kitchen. Turn on the coffee pot, and get it ready. All the while being as quiet as a mouse. Get my creamer set, and bring my coffee to my favorite spot in the living room.
Grab my bible, sit down, and normally it falls open to something that the Lord knows I need to read.
How amazing are his works!!!
This morning it was in Romans.
"LOVE MUST BE SINCERE. HATE WHAT IS EVIL;CLING TO WHAT IS GOOD. BE DEVOTED TO ONE ANOTHER IN BROTHERLY LOVE, HONOR ONE ANOTHER ABOVE YOURSELVES." (Romans 12:9-11)
I cling to these verses. My heart is thankful for a loving heart towards others. But there is always improving on my part. My thoughts can always use work.
Honoring others above yourself takes training and self control. It can be done.
Motherhood helps us with that. Our husband's and children's needs come before our own. I enjoy that! I love serving them and being a blessing.
How do you spend your early Mornings? Do you wake up before your family?
