Early in the Morning

It is five in the morning and I have been awake since three.

I have been thinking of all the things that need to be done before Christmas and it kept me awake. I didn't want to wake the guys, so I decided not to do anything around the house.

I couldn't ask for a better time to spend with the Lord. We sat together and I chit chatted about my worries. I shared how hard it is this time of year without my mom. We read His word together and just sat in Communion.

He brings me peace. He brings me comfort. He brings me hope. He gives me balance.

I need Him...

Yes, it was a blessing that I couldn't sleep.

Early mornings...

Gina, did you lose your Mom recently?

It was two years ago, but Christmas was her time of year. She tried to make it special for everyone in the family. She loved, loved, loved her kids and grandkids.

I think God nudges us awake like that so He can spend time with us. Those are the best times.

Christmas greetings Gina. First, i would like to say how pretty your blog is ~i love snow flakes~ and it is nice to hear when you wake in the wee hours of the morning, you spend time with the Lord. I have had some of my best talks with Him in the middle of the night. I need him to. Dee
