Even so, we are doing Baking Day, something I'm realizing is a discipline for me. It requires me to slow down, have the cooking space cleared and spend some time with my lovely girls. I almost didn't do it today. Putting them down for a nap would have been so much easier, and at six and four years old, they wouldn't even have remembered. But I would have. And I would have missed that time.
My few disciplines that I cultivate haven't come easily today, but I'm giving thanks for grace and struggling on. Thanks for your prayers today especially and I am praying that you my find grace and strength to carry on.
