Choosing Home

So, after a week of complete chaos, I am realizing once again how important my routine is for the well being of my family. Even though we are preparing for a big move, I need to keep on track. Flying by the seat of my pants leaves no margins in my life for those unexpected happenings or room for God to use me anywhere else. I have to get back on track!
Here are my morning routines for Tuesday. Tomorrow I will post my afternoon routines:
