quiet the mind so you can hear

It is true what they say; when you have a kid, the days are long and the years are short. It is already mid-April and Zane is nearly a year-and-a-half! I can’t seem to catch up because I am going from one thing to the next, preparing for something in the near future, completing tasks, and oh yeah-can’t forget to feed the family! Needless to say, my mind is running at top speed with thoughts and my body is always on the go. And lately with Zane now onto a potential new sickness of hand, foot, and mouth disease, and Daniel under the weather more than me, it seems to never end. I am forced, or shall I say ‘given an opportunity’ to practice grace, patience, serving, and selflessness? :) With all this and more going on, I feel more than ever to quiet my mind by quieting my daily things to do. I love to fill my days with play dates and errands so that it gives me a break from Zane being all over me at home and for Zane to explore. However, today we just stayed in after visiting the doctor’s office. Aside from the fact that I don’t want to spread his germs to other young kids, I need us to chill out on our own. This will allow me to quiet my mind because I am not busy trying to socialize with a friend and watch Zane. It is day one of this and I am feeling better and very peaceful amidst taking care of two babies, ;). Both are sleeping now as I get to be still, be quiet, and in this moment, blog. How beautiful. Earlier in the day I had a chance to read a Christian mommy newsletter that helped encourage me and bring me back to my faith roots and the purpose of motherhood. I hope in the days to come I will make time to listen for God’s voice, wisdom, and guidance. Oh how I miss hearing it because my life and mind are so busy…

How do you find time and go about quieting your mind so you can hear?
