Rise and Shine

A quiet joy fills me this morning as I stand at the kitchen counter filling cereal bowls and sippy cups. There is perfect contentment as Meghan grins at me from her high chair and Dylan and Caitlyn chatter happily from their seats at the table. The mundane becomes sacred and I feel how blessed I truly am. I offer a silent prayer of thanks giving for these three beautiful souls who have been entrusted to my care, these three precious angels who, for the past ten minutes, have been snuggling me and each other and saying sweet things like "Mommy, I love my little Miss Meggie", as they stroke and pat her cheeks.

This morning, I have all I've ever wanted in the world. Who could ask for anything more?

Life IS good, isn't it? I hope your morning set the tone for the rest of your day.

As I sit here and type, I am enjoying perfect contentement as well. Ella and Shepherd are down for naps and Paxton is off running errands with Steve--I'm catching some quiet reading, rest and prayer time. As I dive into a more structured prayer life for children and for myself, I am finding myself growing increasingly terrified of the phone ringing. I don't have time for the phone! :)

God bless you, Melissa.
