A widsom day

I jolt awake. My eyes open and find the clock. It's 6:25, but I feel like I could sleep another three hours. I climb out of bed, careful to get the monitor unplugged to take with me without waking my sleeping husband. I make my way downstairs, grab some oatmeal out of the fridge and put on my laughingly weak coffee.

Find my place at the table and open my Bible. I write some prayers down for my family and for a new friend who is trying to reconcile her marriage after an affair. From the monitor I hear her wake up. She starts talking, and then yelling, "MommyDaddy! MommyDaddy!" I go upstairs and quietly tell her to lay down and be quiet, it's not time to get up yet.

Back downstairs, I find my way to Proverbs. I love Proverbs. So much wisdom. This morning, it's wisdom on wisdom. Proverbs 2:6-11: "For the Lord grants wisdom! From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to Him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe." I sit and soak that in for a minute. The older two come down stairs. The light on their clock has alerted them. That means it's time. I glance at the clock and ask Libby if she will turn on the upstairs hall light so Remi will know it's time to get up. As soon as the light turns on I hear her excited response over the monitor. It's 7:00. The day begins!

Have a wonderful, wisdom-filled day, my friends!
