How to Offer God the Gift of your Presence

Presence is a powerful thing…

Every morning I wake up and my husband is gone to work already. At 6:30 I get the kids breakfast on my own and begin the day, usually with a lot of grandiose plans for the day. As the hours go by, I begin to lower my standards to survival and being excited if I manage to get a shower. By 3 pm, I am spent. My quota of patience and all other necessary virtues for mothering 5 children under the age of 7 has been exceeded by about 12,000% and I am literally living for the moment the door opens and all the kids scream, “DADDY’S HOME!!!”

The minute he enters the house everything changes.

No matter how tough the day has been, I can breathe a sigh of relief and rest for a moment knowing that I am no longer alone.
