My favorite part of the day. We start with coffee and time with Jesus. It’s quiet, still dark outside. Sometimes we do not say a word. Other times we talk throughout. But before the noise of the day starts, we try to tune out everything that blurs and seeks to drown out the still, gentle voice of God. There are a ton of things that attract me to this guy, but this is #1. He does it for himself, for me, for us, for our family, for those he leads, for those he shepherds. It is what makes everything else work. Not perfectly, but good. Even in the bad times, the rough patches, when things go sideways and when curveballs are thrown. Try it, I think you’ll like it.
