My morning quiet time has been sporadic at best lately. Part one is my children! These early risers make it hard to find peace before the chaos ensues. After several days of frustration I finally remembered to seek God for wisdom (Why is it we forget this?!) and out of his glorious riches he gave … Continue reading To God be the Glory?
