I am sitting here watching the sunrise as my little family sleeps.

These lyrics keep floating through my spirit:  In the quiet, in the stillness I know that You are God.

I have missed times like this morning!   For the past two months as soon as my feet hit the floor the race was ON.   The race didn’t end until I went to bed each night.

I have missed having time just to hear, to listen, to rest.

What a gift just to sit here in the stillness.  All I hear is the heat blowing through the vents and the keys clicking under my fingertips.

My thoughts are on the Lord.

Psalm 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

I want God to be exalted in my life.  I want to reflect Him — not my own selfish desires and fleshy attitudes.   It makes me sad to think of all of the ways I have failed Him or grieved Him through my attitudes and reactions towards others.

Psalm 5:3
In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation.

Psalm 90:14
Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

It is amazing how spending time with Him can wash things away.

All of the anger.

All of the regrets.

Just being with Him renews me and places my feet on a firm, secure foundation.

Are you feeling anger right now?  Are you walking in condemnation?

I challenge you to sing His praises and spend time with Him!

You will feel the crooked places begin to straighten.


Well my friends, my house is no longer quiet.   Little feet just zoomed down the hall.

I am thankful for those little feet and I am thankful for the much bigger feet who will make a much heavier stomp when he awakens!  I am blessed!

I pray each of you have a wonderful day!

Happy Thursday!

(Since I didn’t have a photo of a sunrise, I thought I would share a recent photo of our princess at sunset.)
