In a previous post I wrote about struggling to find time to do my devotions each day. I received 2 comments and I found each helpful. This is what I have been doing. On the days when I wake up before my munchkins, I reach for my Bible. I have only been able to do this on 2 days, so I have installed a back up plan. On the mornings when I am exhausted and feel like I need a crane to lift me from my bed, I do my devotions in the afternoon, right after I put Lauren down for her afternoon nap. The bonus to doing them in the afternoon, as my brilliant sister-in-law pointed out, is that the boys see me spending time in the word. I am always looking for ways to be a good example for my sons. I want them to see me making God a priority. What better way than to do my devotions when they are awake. However, I have had to ask for quiet and remind them not to interrupt me unless blood is pouring from their bodies or something is on fire! My prayer is that I will continue surrounding myself in God's holy word each and every day. Gaining strength and wisdom not only for myself but for my children.
