With a new little baby that needs to eat often there are already times of stillness being added to my day. I want to use these times to "sit at Jesus' feet." I want to be aware of other times of stillness and quiet to meet Him in prayer. I want to make sure the activities our family participates in are absolutely necessary. I want our home environment to be peaceful, simple, and pleasant--not so rushed and hurried, jumping from one activity to the next. There are lots of distractions going on here. ;o) I want to see my quiet time become a much more regular thing, I want to make sure I'm taking time to do the things my kids want to do--stopping to read a book instead of saying we'll do it later and then forgetting. I realize how fleeting this parenting thing is--it seems like we'll have them home forever, but I realized a few days ago that by the time another decade passes Marissa will be graduating high school. I can't slow down time, but I can make choices to be more PRESENT in the time I am given. So,"stillness"--my theme for this year. What's yours?
