I must have picked up the bug that the kids got, and my brain doesn’t seem to be working well. Thankfully this morning I feel much better than yesterday, even though Laurel managed to get stuck in her crib again at 4:30. Why do the childrearing manuals never say anything about this phenomenon?
I’ve been thinking on these verses:
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. Psalm 28:7
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
Hi Michelle, these are great verses. I need to examine them daily, especially to walk humbly! It’s amazing how much of a better mom I am when I can follow all the Lord’s commands– that’s when “my heart greatly rejoices!” When one of those elements is missing, I ( we)suffer as well as my husband the kids, and anyone else around!
Funny, Miriam has been getting stuck too, but around 3:00. Guess these are more opportunities to pray…. yes, even when we don’t want to! 🙂
I forgot to pray when I got woken up this morning. Since tomorrow is a morale day, I just might poke Lee if she wakes up early again. Won’t that be good for morale?!! 😀
If I waited until all my ducks were in a row to greatly rejoice, I don’t think I’d ever smile. :)I think I know what you mean though. I’m happier when I do right, too. I was working on rejoicing today, and I even got the kids singing.
