the other day i blogged about evening rituals that i have, and realized that we have a wonderful routine in the morning too! these ones are done as much for me as for our kids. i've also found that it's a whole lot easier to get things done in the morning when i have more energy (haha!)
we get breakfast for eleanor and isaiah. and i feed jackson.
the kids then play in the living room while i take care of breakfast dishes.
then i dig into the WORD! i've learned that if i don't do this in the morning, i'm not going to do it at all. (not to mention that if i'm not in the Word everyday i'm not a very pleasant person to be around!)
i usually read a chapter of Proverbs, and some Psalms. sometimes i break out my Joyce Meyer book and speak the Word outloud. it does my spirit good!
i finish up my morning with a nice cup of tea (or coffee) and then it's craft or puzzle or dance time with the kids.
