i love this quote so much.  they lose nothing (including sleep!) who gain christ.  i want to hang it all over my house.  or maybe just by my alarm clock.
in 2015 i'm saying yes to all of this

I mentioned one of my main goals for this year in a previous post, so I thought I'd talk about another one of my goals - getting up before Georgia. For the past few months, G has been getting up suuuuuuuper early so this is nearly impossible. She's been waking up at 5:45 on occasion yall! But she also sleeps until 7 a few mornings a week.  One of my goals is to set my alarm for 6 am every. single. morning.  Some mornings I may already be up with Georgia and if that's the case, then so be it.  But other mornings she may sleep a little later and by getting up at 6 I can allow myself to wake-up, spend some time with Jesus and prepare for my day.  This is actually a combined goal for both Matt and me.  We both want some "me" time in the morning to get our minds right if you will.  So every morning our alarms go off at 6.  I also want the first thing that enters my mind to be from Jesus - not Instagram or my emails.  He is what is important, and glorifying Him is my purpose here (side note: during 2014 a lot of time was spent in prayer asking, "God what is my purpose?  What do you want me to do while I'm here?"  And well, He has clearly answered me over and over and over - "Know Me, love others and glorify me in whatever way you possibly can."  I could really write a whole post on this... maybe I will!)  And I know I cannot do that without making time with Him a priority.  So that is what I will do.  I go to bed early every night so there is truly no excuse!

What are some of yall's goals for 2015?  I'd love to hear!

I didn't mean for it to happen when it did, but since the new year has started, I've been writing down prayers in my journal and it feels great. Whenever I get frustrated or feel upset, I've been taking time to pray about it instead of sulking or getting angry. It's only the 8th...but so far, so good!

I love that you're starting your mornings early with Him. What a beautiful way to start the day. So refreshing!

Hi Denise, I'm new to your blog...but so happy I ran across it! While I'm not a momma, I love reading your sweet sweet words about life and faith! My goals for 2015 are simply prayer and Jesus. I'm hungry to grow deeper in faith and find Jesus in new ways. Who knows what this will look like, but the process is beautiful. Looking forward to reading more of your blog! <3 Mandy
