I rose early this morning, before all the children, which is truly out of the ordinary for me. I dressed, took the trash to the curb, and then sat in the still and prayed. Today is our first day of school and I am looking forward to a wonderful year. I prayed for wisdom and guidance, I prayed for my children, I prayed for all our friends and family in need, I thanked God for the beautiful family he has given us and the many ways He has blessed my life, and then I sat in silence, and stillness waiting for God. I was filled with such peace. I hope I am able to do this every morning. It is the right way to begin my day and our year.
The children are beginning to stir. The coffee maker is primed and ready to brew. I am off to start our day.
May God rain Blessings down on you all, especially those beginning school today!
