Cup 1: 5:45am I went with Newmans Old Extra Bold K Cup due to the fact that I was way too exhausted to even make a pot of coffee. After this Finn and I watched some christian music videos (who knew they were on at 6:oo in the morning.) I was just trying to keep my eyes open at this point.
Cup 2: 6:20am Brewed a pot of Peets coffee (Erica brought it from San Fran delicious!) while brewing I fed Finn his breakfast. After this Finn played in the floor while I got in the Word. Right now I am studying through Kay Arthur's Lord, Teach Me How To Pray.
Jessi Hutchens recommended it to me and I am so grateful. I have learned a lot so far about prayer and how God has perfectly instructed us how to pray within his word. I think I do fairly good at praying and talking with God throughout my day when certain situations arise but I often times neglect quality time in prayer where I spend significant time just praising God for who He is and all he does for me.
Cup 3: 7:00am Refill my cup of Peets and eat a blueberry muffin, Finn is starting to get pretty fussy at this time so I attempt to pacify him while finishing up my bible study. Also Erica woke up around this time so we spent some time together.
Cups 4 and 5 occurred after Crider woke up sometime around 8 and Finn was already taking his first nap of the day at this point.
What began as a frustrating groggy day turned out to be a great morning. I spent quality time with the Lord and both of my boys individually. I lucked out too, both boys took super long naps in the afternoon and I got to nap too.
Also wanted to share another book I have been reading, 50 People Every Christian Should Know by Warren Wiersbe.
I feel like since having kids all I have read is parenting books, which is great but I was in need of a change. This book has been the change I was needing and I am loving to learn about all of the Christian men and women who have gone before me and helped to shape the faith as we know it today.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day:
