Early Morning Musings

June 25, 2008 at 6:38 am 5 comments

For the past two years or so, I’ve made a habit of setting my alarm to get up before the rest of the family. That way I can have my coffee, a bit of computer time and focus myself before the chaos starts.

I’m sitting here at my kitchen table, the only sound is the clicking of the keyboard as I type this, and one bird singing his little heart out in my back yard.  The sun is streaming through my kitchen window, the flowers on my back deck are bursting with life and colour.

I don’t often take the time to actually enjoy this part of the morning. I’m generally too busy with my Etsy shops, getting everything organized, making my plans and getting my day off on the right foot. All of this goes unnoticed and unappreciated.

We need to take the time, every day to actually look around us and see the wonders of our world. Whether you live in the city, the country, a small town, by the ocean, under the mountains, in the plains, wherever, it doesn’t matter. Take some time today, really look around and thank God that He has given us such a beautiful place to live. And remember how truly blessed you really are.

    Sounds like a lovely morning, I wish I had the time to sit and take it all in!

    I am an early bird also. I love getting up early and having that time to myself. I also remember when I was little. I got up early and noticed my mom was working in the garden. I remember sitting on the porch eating my cereal and listening to the birds. I think it had an effect on me.

    You are so right..We take things for granted, even people..I do try and be thankful everyday, even when I am going through a rough time..

    Today I’m up earlier because I start a new job – it’s thrilling, but I’ve already set aside a chunk of time before I leave to sit outside & listen to the birds before I go. :] before that oh-so-delightful chaos sets in, just like you described…

    Amen, Deon! Amen!
