In the early morning, I am sometimes able to sit, read, and enjoy a little silence. I wonder if I can stock up? I'm pretty sure my life is about to take a much more noisy course!
I have never been what anyone would call a "cheerful morning person" but as I grow older I have at least begun to recognize the value of rising early. There is something so peaceful about waking up to a quiet house in the cool of the morning.
Collecting my thoughts and centering my focus on the Lord is so much easier in the silence. Deciding on a plan of action for the day is much less of a daunting task when I am not distracted by the noisy play of a delightfully busy toddler or the swush-swush of a running dishwasher. Bottom line is, I'm getting more done on the days I wake up early.
Especially lately, I've been staying in bed a little longer to try to stock up on those precious minutes of sleep. But most days, I end up wishing I'd fought the exhaustion and just gotten up. It's better to get up, get dressed, and soak in the moments of silence before the rush of the day overwhelms my senses.
Is silent time alone important to your day? When do you make time to be still? I'm especially interested to hear!
