I have recently gone through a biblical renovation as a mother and how I live with and in front of my children (more to come on that later). Those changes caused me to see this mornings quiet time differently.
Baby Grace had just completed her second round of breakfast and was playing nicely. I took that time to catch up on my devotional. I am trying to lose weight so I had taken a supplement a bit earlier and needed to eat something immediately. I got my cheese and crackers, opened my devotional and got ready to dive in. Shortly thereafter, there was a whine and patting of my leg. I picked Baby Grace up and gave her her third round of breakfast. Once I got her situated on my lap, I began to read scripture out loud.
This was not the scene I had envisioned but God spoke to me just then. “What better way to have quiet time with Me then to share it with her?” It was a very sweet and tender moment. Me, the baby I asked God, prayed, and fasted for, spending time with the One who brought us together.
What an awesome way to begin a day.
