Five Minute Friday: Waking up

"They say that waking up is hard to do..."  I love singing my version of that old song to my littles when they wake up crabby.

They usually wake up slowly with snuggles and smiles.  But on the mornings they are fussy and cranky they need even more snuggles and smiles from me and sometimes a song. 

This year I have been waking up to Jesus and the way he wants me to step out in my faith.  I feel like until now I have been hogging my faith and His blessing for myself and my family.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to share my testimony by video at our women's retreat.  I'll be sharing the video here soon!

This post was inspired by The Gypsy Mama. I love the way Lisa-Jo is setting us free from blogging perfectionism by hosting 5 Minute Friday.  And, she has a squishy, sweet, 6 day old baby girl...go see!


  1. "hogging my faith" - i love that. What a great way to put it. And really cool things happen when we take steps of faith down the path God has laid out for us. It's wonderful that you were able to share your testimony with many other women! We just never know what God will do with the seeds we've planted in obedience.

  2. Oh my! Your babies are delicious! How blessed you are. ;)
    I sing "rise and shine, and give God the glory" to my boys in the morning and they are not real crazy about it. But I'm thinking one day they will think back about their crazy mama and smile. :)
    Luv u!

  3. I want to squeeze that baby!! How cute those kids are! I miss mine being that so sweet. I will be squeezing one in a few months and I can't's a boy by the way. :-)

  4. Your rendition of "Waking up is Hard to Do" cracks me up. I may have to borrow that one. Visiting you from 5 min Fridays. Hopefully your weekend is a bit more restful.
