Mommy Confession Update

About a week ago I wrote a post about my lack of discipline in getting up before the children. I realized that I could no longer function in the chaos!

I just wanted to give you an update and maybe some encouragement. I can promise you that I am so not a morning person. I love staying up late and HATE, HATE, HATE getting up early. However, the last few weeks have been so amazing. I have gotten up around 6:30 most mornings. (After the first week I found myself slipping back on the couch hitting the snooze. Bad idea!) My days have went so much smoother. I have felt energized and focused.

More importantly my relationship with God has been growing a lot. I've actually been anticipating "our" time in the mornings and not just checking it off my list. I'm so excited that I have a desire for His word again. I'm still amazed that he lets me run back into his arms when I so blatantly neglect him.

If you read the post and thought you could never make that commitment to get up let me encourage you to at least try it for a week. You will be amazed at how much different your days will be if you put the Lord first!

I really need to do this. Thanks for the encouragement. I think I will do it next week. Like you I am totally not a morning person, but it sounds like if you can do it then I can do it too!

Sheena-let me know how it goes. I know you can do and you will be amazed at the difference it can make in your day. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't just committed to do it for a week. I'll be praying for you as I get up every morning. Actually, I pray that neither one of us hits the snooze button ;).
