As I was tucking Ava Greer into bed on Wednesday night she told me she wanted to start having a quiet time with the Lord in the mornings like I do. "Mommy please wake me up early to have my time with God and I want to sit where you sit to do it." Sweet baby was so excited that she actually woke up around 4 am and came to our room. "Mommy is it time?" I put her in bed with us and promised I would wake her when it was time. When it was time, I had to wake her super quietly because we had added another visitor to our bed. ❤ I tickled her little arms and face and she woke with the most eager spirit to spend time with God. I picked her up, wrapped her in a blanket, gave her her new book and she got started- sitting in the big chair where I had just spent my time with God. I went and took my shower and when I came back in she had my bible out looking for the scripture that went with her devotion. I reminded her to wrap up in prayer as I made my way back to the bathroom to get ready. After a while I heard little feet upstairs getting ready for school. What a way for that little 7 year old to start her day. The eagerness and excitement to spend time with God was beautiful. This is a beautiful picture indeed.
