I haven’t prayed about this nearly as much as I wanted to… I have been distracted by family stuff and my heart.

Something I have wanted to do for a LONG time but DON’T WANT to do, is get up earlier, and it came to me “PING” (yep! just like that!) – I will get up at 5:30 for Lent… and I will trust the Spirit to speak loud and revive me each morning!! And I trust Father God to keep my children (and the dog) sleeping although I will be up!!

Tomorrow I will put a cross of ash on our foreheads, and talk about what that means with my children.  And then I’ll wipe it off, since I know it won’t stay and will end up on my bed or my favorite shirt!! 🙂

From Wed – Saturday the theme of my Scripture reading will be “Lord God, by Your Word, fill me with Your life-giving Spirit.”

Between now (Tuesday night) and tomorrow morning God has a big work to do in my heart involving forgiveness.  His Spirit does not breed resentment or revenge, as they lead to death in every sense of the word.

A place to record my journey of creating a life of balance. First as God's child and bride, "wifing", mothering, homeschooling, leading worship, neighboring, mentoring, teaching piano, and the myriad of other things that clamor for my time and energy. And a place to put pictures to show my family whom I miss incredibly, and who live so very far away from us here in Alaska!! View all posts by reneegrace
