I'm not much of a morning person, just ask anyone in the family! But this morning my crazy allergies woke me up at 6:00, before anyone else had crawled out of bed, so I decided to go ahead and get up. It was such a nice time, I sat by the sliding glass door, cracked it open so I could hear the birds singing, watched the sun come up through the trees, and had my devotions. Of course I made myself some coffee too! Morning coffee in my rose coffee cups from Aunt Vicki with hazelnut creamer is the best! Plus you can have it on a gluten free diet!!
I was feeling kind of down yesterday for various reasons so the verse I read this morning was perfect-
"Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God." Psalm 43:5 It was silly because one of the very things I was feeling down about was something that we have been through many times before and God has always taken care of it and worked things out perfectly... so why am I doubting again? It's a good thing God is so patient with me.
Well, time to get started on the day, the kids are waking up!
