Making Your Home A Haven: Start with God
When I read what Monica was planning for this weeks challenge I was very excited. My new goals are regarding health, heart and home. I believe that all things start with the heart. I know that I want to have a heart that is pleasing to the Lord.
This was a hard week. The baby I watch is almost six months old and has not wanted to sleep. That has been challenging along with some extra babysitting duties this week. I wasn't able to do as much for this challenge as I would have liked. With my harried week I know that I needed time in His word more then ever.
I am finding the best time for me to do my reading is during afternoon quiet time. Even if no one sleeps my home is quiet and I need this time to recharge. I feel like I am rushed in the morning and exhausted in the evening. I know as the season in my home changes that finding more quiet time will be easier.
I am currently looking for a daily devotional to do during this time. Something that is simple. I am open to suggestions. I hope to have time to browse my local Christian bookstore this weekend.
Although I didn't start a prayer journal or memorize the Psalms I am okay with that. I know that the walk I am taking is not suppose to be completed in a day or week but over my lifetime.
