Early in the morning
“Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” Mathew 6:6 (The Message Bible translation)
Thankful that God sees all things done in secret.
Thankful that Day 1 of attempting to wake up early actually happened.
Thankful for my husband. And for the little berry who somehow woke up at 6am, stood in her cot for half an hour, and went back to sleep.
I’ve never been a morning person. Even back in those training days when I was training for survival. Perhaps all these years I’ve somehow managed to miss the beauty of mornings, and how magical it can be to be enveloped by its quiet majesty.
