"you hear my voice in the morning; at sunrise I offer my prayer and wait for your answer." Psalm 5:3
I love to wake up early. Crawl out of bed in the dark, tip toe to the kitchen, start the coffee and my worship music on itunes.
Wait, I don't love to wake up early.
I love the effect it has on my day. I have been doing this with semi-regularity for at least a year. I started a group on FB dedicated to encouraging my friends to wake up early. I have a friend named Kat who was instrumental in helping me realize the inherent value in purposely getting up early.
Kat has started a new blog that is all about mothering and the first series is about getting up early. I also sometimes read the Girl Talk blog which is focusing on rising early this month, too.
However, I am confident my early morning time is not wasted. Even if the only visible benefit is the easier way I interact with my children after having two cups of coffee in me, its worth it, don't you think?
What time do you get up?
PS On the side I posted a button that will lead you to Kat's ebook, Maximize Your Mornings. Read it! You'll be excited to get up tomorrow!
