Good Morning!

Just wanted to give you a glimpse of my morning.  

It's devotional time.  A time to pray and spend some time with the Lord.  I really like this little devotional Mr. Cozy gave me for Christmas a few years ago.  I can't help but read through it every year since.  I have to say that my relationship with Jesus Christ is what sustains me everyday!  I love Him and I want to know Him better.  I'll be the very first to say that I'm not even close to perfect!  At all.  Not close.  I don't strive for just "perfection", but I strive for Christ and want to be more like Him.  I love Him not just for what He does for me, but who He is!  I only hope that at the end of my life one day (after living a very long, healthy, happy life, in Jesus' name!) I hope to look back on my years and truly be able to say that I lived for Jesus and carried out His purpose in my life!  

That's the ultimate legacy to leave behind.

So thankful to my loving husband to go on this journey of life with me.  In the ups and downs--and trust me when I say we have them both!-- God has blessed me with a husband that is a perfect fit whom I'm crazy in love with!!!

So, here with my coffee in my morning chair or "reading chair" by the fireplace, I wake up.  There's nothing like coffee, some Jesus time, and an embrace from my hubby that's just the fuel I need to start off my day!

I hope your day is a blessed one. :)

(This is a favorite mug of mine that Mom gave me one Valentine's Day. I love what it says, ha!!)

Love that mug but really what I love is that your hubby is looking out for you spiritually. That is awesome.

I love taking alittle time in the morning with God! Bless you and your husband! No one is ever perfect and I think when we discover this it makes it much easier to grown into the people we where meant to be!
Blessing to you and your family,

Leslie, you are salt of the earth. Don't ever forget that. I am always excited to read the blogs of other christian women and get a glimpse into their daily world, as we are to encourage one another in the Lord.

Just catching up with some of my blogging friends and I can't believe I missed this beautiful post. Your mornings sound a lot like mine and I agree, it is absoulutely the best way to start the day...I might just add a piece of that chocolate pie, though! lol btw...I used that BM devotional last year and I loved it. Have a wonderful weekend, Patty
