Rise and Shine!!

One of the many things that God has been changing around here is our schedule. I will go into more detail on another post.

Today  I got up early spent some time with Lord and then went to the gym all before the sun came up. I have to say that even though it was a struggle to get out of bed, it was a wonderful quiet time alone.  Just me and Jesus. 

When I got home, I couldn’t believe how much time I had before everyone would get up and start their day, so I decided to make everyone a nice breakfast. Just as I was about to get everything ready my oldest daughter got up and asked to help.  I told her I had something better for her. She could do it all. She was elated. Brianna has such a servants heart. She is always asking to help with anything, even if it’s changing a babies diaper. I try to not be one of those moms that never let their kids help because it always takes twice as long and usually twice as messy.. I want to teach her and to be honest, this is how she enjoys spending time with people, by helping them! I could learn a lot from this girl.

 As I was in the middle of showing her how to do everything and my littlest one decided she wanted to help as well.

Well, all she really did was look adorable, but that's helping right!?!

Beautiful Addison, messy hair and all

Back to cooking......
Looking good!

She also made oatmeal and biscuits

She was having so much fun!

Just as we were finishing up, everyone slowly got out of bed. She hugged me so tight and thanked me for letting her help.

Thankful for such an amazing start to the day. Thankful that I could love on my oldest daughter and have some one on one time talking about Jesus with her.

 I am even thankful that I get the honor of washing all these dishes.
It was worth it!

Have a blessed day!!
