Sometimes as I have time with the Lord, I drink tea.... It seems to make it easier to slow down, ponder things, talk with Him and listen....
Beauty can also help that... although sometimes it can be distracting also.
I read my Bible first thing every morning... and right now, I usually stay in bed while I read. It's warmer in there and yes, I stay awake, but I don't have any tea at that time. :)
Sometimes I sip a cup of tea as my kids and I sit... and talk... what precious times. It is easier to sit and concentrate on them when I am sipping tea... and the same thing can work in my time with the Lord.... but I do have to make the time....
I tend to talk with Him all throughout the day... and most times it is not a formal prayer at all, but more of a conversation.... and it is precious.
Still.... a cup of tea... and time with the Lord... can be a good thing.
It is so easy to just run through each day.... our lives are so busy.... I know mine is terribly busy every day and I'm sure yours is also. We don't have time for everything... and something has to "go". I don't want to just fly through each day dealing with things and reacting... I want to make time for the really important things... and I know I am a better wife and mom when I do so.
I hope you are also making time with God a real priority.... reading His Word every day... but also praying, praising and listening..... it will help us to be the women He planned for us to be. :) Thank you for visiting... I hope you have a great week.
