Mornings

   I like mornings, before the rush. I am almost always the first one up. It makes the day run so much more smoothly when I am able to take a few minutes to breathe...ALONE. I start the coffee, let the dogs outside and leisurely go about the house doing whatever must be done to make each particular day run most effectively.
   I like that we have time to patiently care for our animals needs. That they aren't abandoned and yet expected to behave regardless of hours spent alone.
  I like that we homeschool our boys. I like that I hold the key on deciding if they need to be blasted out of bed with a fog horn or if they need extra time to rest. Life gives us all the need for both, a mother knows how to monitor this best.
  I like that we have lovely mornings with bible studies lasting as long as we can push the envelope. We can eat our breakfast and calmly sip our coffee...or whatever, while we are mulling over life's complexities.
  I like that we have time to exercise together. It is fun to do with others and a great way to start the day.
  Of course we all shoot out like rockets after the morning rituals. The neat thing is we individually get to carry the joint morning experience away with us. Mornings can make or break our day. A good one gives us energy. A bad experience is tough to compensate. I agree with those who say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I'd like to add to that statement. I think we would do well to consider mornings being the most important time of the day.

and I like to read your blog! I agree with you about how important morning rituals are. I have 1 full hour with Rose before she is gone to school for 6 1/2 hrs.

I am thankful God is making me a morning person and so that I can understand the Psalmist's sentiments. I had to have a little fun on Crosswalk.com to respond to your blog. The Psalmists says:
Psalms 5:3 -In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalms 59:16-But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; Psalms 88:13- But I cry to you for help, O Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you.Psalms 90:14- Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love.

Doesn't He though?

Glad you guys left comments, most people just call me about my blog. Glad you are embracing mornings too!

That's still great! There is nobody calling me about my blog. 8) It's getting hotter here these days, the best time of day with the kids at 5 am.

Mornings would be more beloved by me if they didn't always happen first thing in the day.
