Isn't this just precious? We truly want to help Clara Anne to establish a good morning habit with the Lord. It's just better for her to not sleep so late, but get up and spend some time in worship. And her reactions so far? At first she was just thrilled. She felt so special and grown-up and was so eager to do it. But about a week into our new routine, when I asked her how her morning time had gone, she said, "Well Mommy, I'm not always sure what to read in the Bible, it's such a big book! And, sometimes I get sleepy." Welcome to common struggles in the Christian life, Clara Anne! We've all felt that way sometimes! The past two days I have let her listen to CD's that have readings from Scripture as well as kids songs, which she loves. Most of all, I want to make this an enjoyable time for her, not a "must-do" item to check off a list. We're praying that the Lord will use these times to touch her heart, teach her, and bless her. May these be the first of thousands of times of personal worship throughout her whole life!
