you get what you ask for!

Getting up early enough in the mornings to get ready for work, fix lunches, eat breakfast, take Shelby out several times, play with her, feed her AND spend time in God's Word has been... well, a challenge. Mike and I have really wanted to start everyday in the Word together, but sometimes we're just so sleepy. Well, this weekend, we excuses, we're setting the alarm for 6:20 and we're getting up. And we have been praying that God would help us to keep this committment...

Well... 3 days in a row, Shelby has woken us up between 6:00 and 6:15 to go out. We're laying there wishing we could get those last 10 minutes of sleep, but she's insistent. I guess this is God's way of helping (more like, making) us get up on time! As much as I want to just roll over and go back to sleep, I have to smile because that annoying little whine 15 minutes too early, is really an answer to prayer! :)
