So my ultimate goal is to not be idle, to pay attention to the people in my home - to their hearts, their habits, their paths- to serve God by being a servant to the people in my life. Now that my goal is clearly defined, I hope to get back to baby steps, small accomplishments, and slow but steady progress.

Didn't I Say Baby Steps?
I have realized the scripture I have been focusing on the last few weeks is not a baby step scripture. KJV Proverbs 31:27 "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness." This is more the ultimate goal, isn't it? If I wake up early so that I can get my day, my husband's day, and my children's day off to a good start; that is looking well to the ways of my household and eating not the bread of idleness. Waking up is a baby step that contributes to the end goal. I can wake up. I can take that small step every day. Trying to never eat the bread of idleness is overwhelming. I've been choking on the elephant....so to speak.
