What Works for Me Wednesday
First things first. I'm going to made a note of what's on my sidebar. The Proverbs 31 woman, a standard that I have always tried to uphold in my family and household. Of course, the key word here is tried. ;P It's important for you to understand that what works for one person will not work for you. Don't expect to find on this blog or any other for that matter a lifestyle and schedule that will solve your problems and work for you and your family. It's good to find bits and pieces and find out exactly how to put together your own. This series will be a view into what I have learned over the past, oh jeez, probably 15 years to help make things fun and run smoothly. Proverbs 31:15a says "She also rises while it is yet night." I absolutely feel like this is a necessary step in my household. I have chosen a discipline to get up at 5:00 every morning, (get my coffee, necessary step ;P) and sit down for my Bible reading. This is a very important time for me. It's quiet and the kiddos are still asleep. I feel like I can have my alone time with God to truly seek His will for that day. And to beg for help so I don't screw it up. Even if you can't get up at 5:00, just getting up a little before the kiddos to seek God and His plan for that day makes a world of difference. I hope you guys will enjoy this series and I want to know if you guys have this discipline. I'm starting small because their is no way I could throw everything in my house at once, you might run screaming in the other direction ;P. All for now.
