The Riggs Family Blog
is hosting a blog hop and you are supposed to say why someone should read and follow your blog. I thought I would join in today and say that I would hope that when people read my blog they would be encouraged in the Lord.
Sometimes I write poetry, and other times I share things about my family and how God has helped us. Like when my middle daughter lost 3 of her children, and how God helped us and comforted us so that we could help to comfort others.
Other times I just write about the joys of life and how much I enjoy them with my dear husband, family, friends, and church friends.
Blogging can be a ministry and a place to find people who need love, care, and prayers.

Meet Him in the Morning
As I rise and greet the morning, there is stillness in the air
Sounds of silence all around me, before the day is filled with care
In those quiet, gentle moments, I feel God’s presence, and His call
As He lifts the veil of darkness, I before Him bow in awe
It’s as though there is no other in this vast, still, quiet place
Only me and my dear Savior, as I meet Him face to face
“Hear my words” He sweetly prompts me, so I turn to Psalms and read
There’s a beauty in each stanza, I pray the words, and on them feed
What a way to start my morning, I wish I did this everyday
Greeting Him, I let Him lead me, feeling prompted, I then pray
Oh the closeness and the splendor, oh the love I feel Him give
“Come with me, my dear daughter and I will teach you how to live”
In the night He gives us slumber, yes He gives His beloved sleep
But in the morning, oh the riches He will share when Him we greet
Why do we rise and hurry through the rituals of our same routine?
Why don’t we stop and see the Savior, meet with Him, and riches glean?
No better time than in the morning, before the hassles of our day
I urge you to embrace Him early, let Him speak, and to Him pray
Then go on to make the coffee, have your breakfast, watch the news
Wash your face, or take your shower, don your clothes, and tie your shoes
But don’t miss out on special blessings that the quiet morning brings
Unwrap them, and be thankful for them, they will cause your heart to sing
I promise that you won’t be sorry that you spent that time with Him
Meet Him in the Morning and you’ll want to do it... time and time, and time again!
