The morning routine



Day begins


the alarm goes off

once

twice

toss warm covers off
swing tired legs over the edge

glasses help me see
(should pray to see through Your eyes)

standing
(should pray for strength to stand firm)

start prepping lunches for the girls and me

stop in between 
to rouse the girls from their beds
(I'm their snooze button)

packing lunches

one to school
grateful for Your mercies new
praying she has strength and courage
knowing Your presence
seeing Your hand

two to school
grateful for Your mercies new 
praying she has strength and courage
knowing Your presence
seeing Your hand

off to work
coffee in hand
praying Your peace over them
Your protection
 Your grace

so begins another day...
