Project 52 | Peaceful | Week 38

Motherhood is


Because in order to be the best mother I can be,

I have to be in a good place in my marriage and with myself.

And that means mama needs her own time to grow in the Lord.

(even if it is at 5 am!)

5 am. The house is silent but for the pitter-pat of rain on the windows. Everyone else is sleeping, even the animals. My stomach is growling like I didn't just eat 8 hours before and I can't sleep. At first, I was frustrated. Sleep is such a rare and important commodity around here. I go to bed by 9, and I'm up at 630, and even then, I'm exhausted all the time.

But as I dragged myself out of bed to satisfy the hungry babies, I realized I had a golden hour and a half, ALL to myself. That I could do whatever I wanted.

So for the next hour and a half, as I listened to the rain fall, I spent some quality time in the Word and in Cynthia Heald's Becoming a Woman of Purpose.

Perfectly peaceful.
