Scattered thoughts on Schedules and Being yourself or not?

I actually have to topics today.  Sorry if I sound scatter brained.  It's because I am!!

One thing I'm learning is that a schedule can be a lifesaver when your young child stops napping.  It shows you that the day has a "Beginning"  and even more importantly "AN END"  There are times when my days at home with my 3 year old feel so long.  I try to avoid that by having a schedule posted and incorporating at least one errand into the schedule.  Today, I need to go to the grocery store and maybe the library.  I do have a lot of learning activities planned for Noah today, thank God for that!  It is suppose to be a rainy day.

Today I was complaining to my hubby as I normally do about how him and my daughter are early birds and I'm not.  But I feel like I'm force into getting up early, just because everybody else does.  My husband was up at 7 something every morning on our honeymoon in Hawaii.  I remember thinking "Oh my gosh, what have a gotten myself into?" "Is this what I get to look forward to for the rest of my life?"  The answer to that second question seems to be "yes".  Almost 5 years into marriage.  I started to think about Jesus and the scripture below:

2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

Jesus was living in heaven with God.  The scripture above says "he was rich".  But for our sakes became poor.  Jesus put on the likes of corrupted human flesh to save us.  He was walking around with nothing becoming about him at all.  He became that way for us.  If you read the accounts of Jesus after the resurrection, He is a magnificent sight in all his splendor.  He is royalty, being in holy union with God Himself.

My point for myself is:  Jesus wasn't poor, but He became poor.
I'm not an early bird but I can be one for my family.
