The Hello Mornings girls are sharing pictures today. Here's mine:
These three things are usually with me in the early morning: a baby, a Bible, and a reading light.
I like to sit in my comfy glider, but that doesn't always happen. In fact, the day I took this picture, I ended up kneeling on the bedroom floor to read my Bible while Little Miss played. The way our house is set up, there are very few places I can go that won't wake anyone. So we move around.
There is something about having to make such an effort that brings me great satisfaction. Reading by a small light, kneeling on the cold floor… it makes me feel SERIOUS!
I think of Christians in times past who had to read in secret. Who treasured each word of the book. When Bibles were rare and couldn't be purchased at the local Wal-mart! I want to be serious like they were.
To LOVE the word and value it.
Each day I get up and read, I feel stronger. Just a little.
And that makes me happy.
