Amen & AMEN! I get up at 5:30. I'm usually in bed by 10. I was a night owl until about a year ago, when the Lord convicted me on rising early. It's not always easy, but I realized that I set the tone for our mornings, and if I'm right with the Lord...our mornings (and therefore our days) are much smoother. I even have time to tackle a household chore or two before heading out the door!

I balked at rising early for years, and now I hate that I wasted all that time. I didn't think it would be worth it, but the payoff has been tremendous.

As you comparison.


Thank you for your words this morning. I needed to hear it.
I miss those rainy Colorado mornings. Loved them when we lived in the Springs.


I am facing a similar dilemma myself. I feel the Lord is asking me to start my quiet time in the AM rather than at night. As I've gotten older the morning seems worse and worse. :) My children have learned not to say too much until the coffee is going. I get alot of flack about going to bed early too. I've tried to train myself to stay up but I'm a wreck the next day. So no worries I think your in good company about the early to bed thing.


love the rainy mornings!!

So glad you enjoyed this one.

blessings and big hugs girl!


I envy you and the "fallish" weather. Here in CA it is still in the high 80's and low 90's with no rain in sight.
