Welcome back to Coffee and Conversation!
This is, by far, one of my favorite times of the week. I love seeing what y’all have been up to and it’s a great opportunity for Pat & me to give you a glimpse into what’s goin’ on around here!
So, in the true spirit of [virtual] “coffee and conversation,” here’s what’s happening in our world…
We’ve just started a new series, “30 Days of Praying for Your Husband,” and we’re super excited about it! It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married 6 minutes or 60 years, praying for your husband is never a bad idea. (Unless, of course, you’re praying that he fall off a cliff, then that would be a bad idea.) Even if you’re not married yet, it’s not too soon to begin praying for your future husband.
And, this too…
In our effort to really refocus on what God is speaking to our hearts in the area of blogging, Pat and I are striving to be very intentional with our time. While I understand that Mom’s Morning Coffee will only succeed in accomplishing our goals if we’re willing to work, I’m learning that it’s even more important to understand that all my hard work is in vain if my priorities aren’t in order. I’m realizing the importance of shutting my computer more often. Sounds counter-productive to building a successful website, I know, but often God calls us to do that which doesn’t have an easy explanation.
Speaking of leaving my computer shut…I actually left my laptop at home over the holiday weekend to enjoy “unplugged” time with my family. Not sure if I can describe just how big that is, but let me be honest and say, that’s a huge.hairy.deal! Sure, I took some pictures, but I was determined not to have all my memories captured by my phone’s camera. I purposely kept my eyes open, my heart available, and my mind focused on soaking in all those precious, never-to-be-had-again moments. I honestly don’t think I missed a single, “Mom! Watch this!” from my busy girl. And, I have no regrets.
Even though I was mostly unplugged I’m so glad I was able to capture this beautiful shot…
Time constraints didn’t allow us to choose features for this week, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy this week’s most clicked post:

Link up family friendly posts that support our site’s mission of encouraging, informing, and inspiring women. Think: marriage, parenting, recipes, DIY, saving money, faith-building, etc. (Serious business…Link up vulgarity and it’ll be deleted.)
Don’t link posts that have been linked here previously.
Visit at least 2 other links. That’s what makes this a par-tay! Plus, it’s kinda the polite thing to do.
