Words, Words, Words

As a stay at home mommy with two babies under the age of two, my days are often filled with noise, but not necessarily words. My oldest is just starting to develop a vocabulary (with syllables that mean words, but not quite words, much less sentences), so I’m really the only one saying much of anything around the house for most of the day.
I am an introvert, so this is exhausting for me. However, I have found help in books and music, words that someone else can say to me!

How do I find time to read? I have very sacred times of my day when I dedicate myself to my books. These times are few, and sometimes very short, so I don’t just read anything.

I thought I’d share what books I have been reading, and music I have been listening to. I figure it’s worth my precious time to delve into these books, maybe someone else will be inspired too 🙂

My “real” books:

My electronic books: read via Kindle

My music:

I’ve recently been listening to pretty much every album by Keith and Kelly Getty on Spotify, on repeat, non-stop. Their lyrics get me every time, and add that to their amazing musical abilities just makes the combo unstoppable. Literally, can’t pause the songs, or stop, playing all. the. time.

See a theme?
This is my life. It’s not about me, or my kids, or my husband. It’s all about God. Always has been from eternity past, and will be forever. Who am I to demand otherwise?

Soli Deo Gloria
