Years ago, morning brought these bright peering over my bed, waiting for snuggle. I was blessed to forever hit snooze and ditch the alarm clock. Who could resist waking to precious children wanting to climb under the covers to snuggle and start the day wrapped in love.
In the past year, we have added four sweet princesses. Our hearts and home are filled to the brim. Hugs, snuggles, bottles ... my forever snuggle alarm.
As mommy and wife, my days can be filled to the brim of busyness vying for my precious time. The dishes, laundry, and unmade beds scream louder than the secret longings of little ones' hearts. I can rush out of bed to silence the chores and schedule that beckons. Or, I can choose to nurture hearts, create memories, spend time with my Jesus and our kidz, and simply snuggle.
I remember during a time of praise a 5 year old climbed on my back. Dancing gently, he held on to my shoulders and we worshipped together. In that sweet moment, I felt as if I was ushering my son into the presence of the King. Gently carrying my little lamb to the Great Shepherd.
My passion, to carry children around the world to His throne. Set them down in His presence and go and search for the other lost children. Yesterday, four girls twirled in worship and danced. My heart almost burst with joy.
Yet each day it begins. I have a choice. To awaken to my snuggle alarm and capture the day with His grace. What precious moments do you share with the children in your life? Don't let them slip away, cherish them as we lead them into His love.
And as always, I would be crazy honored to have you link up with momma notes. I jot some on Mondays, but you can link up any day of the week (I get the momma, filled to to the brim, schedules) Just mom. Sharing our notes. Creating a melody.
