It's just a few minutes before 11 PM. I'm usually up at least this late every night, though most people think I'm nuts. They'd be right.
With five kids and A LOT going on in our household, 11 PM is mighty late for a tired mama to be staying up til. But, I can't help it. It's sooo incredibly quiet right now.
Quiet times are few and far between here during the day. Usually, if we have them, it's because I duct-taped the kids' mouths and threw them all in a closet. Ok, not really..... But that does give me an idea. Note to self: buy duct tape.
Quiet is useful to really hear the breath of God in your heart. There is so much I've been praying about lately and I can't seem to ever really hear a definitive answer. There is always so much noise. But when I take some time and focus on His presence, I find myself with some answers, though many are still elusive as before. In His time, I tell myself. In His time.
