As a busy wife and mom, it’s hard to find a quiet place for meeting with God each day. I’ll have to admit that I’ve not always been disciplined about having a quiet time. But, the last few years have taught me that if I don’t spend time with God, I won’t be able to accomplish the things He has for me to do.
Since we moved into our current home a little over two years ago, I have been having my quiet time each morning after I drop the kids off at school. My favorite chair in our family room has been the location that I set up my devotion and Bible study materials.
I discovered, though, that while the family room was a good choice when I was home alone, it was not so conducive to quiet contemplation when the family was home on the weekends. And, if we had overnight guests, it certainly did not provide any privacy.
So, a few weeks ago I confiscated a chair and ottoman my mom had that she no longer wanted. It’s a special chair in that it belonged to my Great Aunt Edna.
I put the chair in my office and set up a small basket with my quiet time materials. I’ve only been in this location for a couple of weeks, but it has definitely grown on me and has made my quiet time more meaningful.
Here is a picture of what I keep in my basket.
