Morning Quiet Time

The morning sky beckoned me to come outside and sip a cup of coffee.  "Come and enjoy the beauty that the Lord Himself painted in the sky" was the cry of the moment just before sunrise.

Although I am drawn to want to do this every morning, I often times do not give into those callings.  However, this morning I gladly resisted the responsibility that morning time brings to a busy mother.  I took a blanket, a cup of coffee, and a prayer. 

A stolen moment in time to whisper thanksgivings and petitions to my Lord always makes my day go better even though the clocked bellowed that I was running late.  The morning came and went.  The children made it to school on time.  The breakfast dishes have been washed and the youngest child of all has been diligent to work on his school.

 Those quiet moments entertained before the household was awake laid the foundation for the new day.  I am thankful to have enjoyed them and to cherish each new day that the Lord gives to me.  I ask myself, "Why don't I stop more often and share a cup of coffee with Him before the whirlwind of each new day begins?"

grace and peace,
julie

Nice thoughts. Those callings are rare moments...isn't it? : ) It is great to be able to reflect. I sometimes am able to do that after I get home from work and can do my evening prayer out in the sheep pasture. I sit down and watch my neighbors hay bales and the amazing peace and quiet....however the soul communicates with the creator in it silent language.

Happy Fall!

Those times in the morning are so benificial for me. Being a mom is a big job and I believe those quite times are what gives us the renewed strength to continue.

Weekend Farmer,
Very well stated. Thanks for taking the time out to comment.

Marci,
Thank you. I too am glad. It made all the difference in the world.

Cheryl,
One of the most wonderful things with blogs is that you can reach into somebody's world on your own time schedule. I am glad the pictures touched your heart.

Jenny,
Amen to that. Hope you have a great day!

grace and peace,
julie

Beautiful pictures but pictures just never do justice to seeing it in person.
