and i remember those days were full of lots of condemnation and guilt and not much heart change or growth. it was more about checking it off the list, which didn't happen frequently enough for my standard, instead of genuinely hungering and thirsting for time with the Lord.
one day, i absolutely do want to implement a daily before-the-kids-wake-up quiet time. absolutely. but "before the kids wake up" is anyone's guess these days, you know? could be 3am, could be 8am. sometimes there really is a physical need to sleep during those hours.
i pray constantly, almost like an ongoing conversation throughout the day. i read His Word daily. but it's just not at a set time every single day. and that's okay. who says we're supposed to have it all together anyway?
i love the freedom and peace and beautiful picture of God's grace that this verse gives paints. He sees me. He knows it's exhausting. He offers grace and i just need to believe it and receive it.
anyway, to say that i loved designing this print is a gross understatement. the little mama and baby animals? they just completed the whole picture for me. i literally wept when i printed out the finished product. i know, call me crazy. because i am.
