How do your mornings begin?  Rush rush rush?  Slow and easy?  However they begin, take some time to open your Bible and speak to God.  The rest of your day will be better for it.  You'll be better for it.  Have a terrific day!


Blessings,
Laura
Happy at Home

  1. Hi Laura,
    Devotion is in the first set of activities for my day. I am grateful for life, so I like to make sure I thank God for it.

    I hope your day was great my friend :-)

  3. Hi Laura, It's nice to meet you. I followed your link from Kates. I start my conversation with Jesus before I even get out of bed, and it truly does make my day better. Blessings!!

  4. That is such a beautiful picture. I love mornings...in the quiet of the morning is a perfect time to reflect upon God and His goodness. It is my favorite time of the day.

  5. Yes, Hope, I do enjoy quiet mornings. In fact, a bit too much this morning! I let my older children sleep too late today!

  6. Hi Betty Jo,

    That's the perfect way to start the day. I sometimes turn on my audio Bible before I get out of bed, too.

    Blessings,

  7. Good Morning Sweet Friend!

    I usually get up, get a cup of coffee going and do a bible study before the kiddos get up. That's my quiet time to really listen and to study the Word. You're right, if I get the Word in me first thing, I seem to have a much better day than if I rush around and not have time with the Lord. He knows our needs each and every day. I've been reading up a lot on the Grace. It's just so beautiful to have.... things go much smoother with his Grace!

    Have a wonderful day Laura!

    Hugs,
    Amy

  8. Hi Amy,

    I have a daughter named Amy. I'm sure you know that it means beloved. I also have a daughter named Emily Anne. Anne means full of grace. It's wonderful to see the grace developing in all our lives. Extending it to others can be as difficult as accepting it from God. ~smile~

  11. Hi Roxy,

    I needed to remind myself. I'm listening to Isaiah on YouVersion this week. I've been through it enough times now, it's beginning to come alive to me. I know that I need to saturate myself in the Word this year.

    Blessings,

    Laura

  12. My morning always begins with coffee and "Good Morning God." Got in that habit a long time ago. I definitely need to spend more time with the Bible.

  13. A couple of years ago I started reading and listening through the Bible with You Version and Bible Gateway. I really enjoy it.

    Blessings to you Stacey!

  15. Wise advice. My mornings start out in a rush most of the mornings I'm afraid, but I try to have time with God each morning before the busy-ness of the day engulfs me.

  16. I actually do better with bible reading and study later in the afternoon but your point is well made...be sure to fit it in and make it a priority! :)

  19. Keep pursuing the Lord Marissa. He's pursuing you.

    I really liked your Valentine's banner. I pinned it.

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
