Morning Quiet

Several weeks ago I committed to getting up early (for me about 7:30) to spend time reading my bible and concentrating on some very specific prayer.  This is my new quiet place.  A beautiful spot in the mornings on my back patio enjoying the new day with the birds praising with me.

I am so glad that I have stuck with this commitment.  My intent was to create this new habit through the summer when I didn't have to get up quite as early as I do during the school year.  Then once school started in the fall, I wouldn't have a hard time getting up a tad earlier.

I thought the discipline of getting up earlier than everyone else would be hard, so I have been covering it in prayer.  God has been faithful and I am absolutely loving this time with him.  Some mornings I have even woken before the alarm clock!  That is totally a God thing!
