My favorite place



I serve such a wonderful God. So...why does it always surprise me when he blesses me? A while ago I started praying that He'd help me rise early to be with Him. He's been so faithful. I wake up early, before the rest of the house and the first thing on my mind is being with Him.

I go to our place-my dining room table that has windows overlooking the water, facing the east. Almost always, as soon as I finish my Bible reading, the sun shows it's face above the trees. Just as I begin my prayer time I feel the warmth. I feel the embrace of our Lord who is always, always there for me. This summer has been kind of tough for our family. Over and over again God has shown His faithfulness-in the big things and the small. I still worry about a lot. But, I know that every morning He will meet me there and take the load that I carry. What an awesome God I serve!
