i made sour cream chocolate chip muffins this morning
now don't get me wrong
i'm not that woman who's up at the crack a dawn
baking bread for the family's daily consumption ...
but i would like to be
not really the baking bread part, but the happy early riser part
i've been feeling a tug on my heart lately to wake up earlier ... to be happier when i get my girls outta bed, to not walk around in a fog for an hour while trying to figure out how i'm going to fit oddly shaped lunch items such as green beans and cheese into a kitty cat bento box ... i want to be cheerful and have a happy heart ... and i'm realizing that i need to get up early ... have some quiet time before i interact with my family, and not after they're all gone for the day and i've had 2 melt downs over dirty gym clothes and forgotten socks
i'm not totally there yet, but i'm moving in the right direction
"...to exchange whispers with God
before I exchange shouts with the world"
then i read this verse in Proverbs the other day that made me laugh out loud
" how long will you lie there...when will you get up from your sleep? "
ok ok ... got it ... i'm up
i wrote it out and clipped it onto my message board in the kitchen
a reminder that God certainly does have a sense of humor ...
oh and the muffins were yummy! recipe is here
