Morning

I have never been a morning person. I sleep best in the mornings because it takes me a little bit to fall asleep at night. So in the morning, I usually stumble, and mumble, and act as if getting up is the end of the world. But lately..this chica has changed her tone. I just wanted to share the JOY it has brought me to get up early and get moving the last two weeks. I definitely had some accountability in this. Thanks, Jen!

I have been getting up and working out for 30 mins and then reading the Word. After I work out I am more alert to read and don't feel sluggish. The book of ACTS has been jumping off the pages. I am constantly like...what was Peter thinking or why did Paul do that? I am thinking and internalizing things before 6:30 am! This is a miracle!

I am really grateful for this new routine and thankful that it feels good to possibly become more of a morning person. I don't have it all figured out and I am sure you will catch me snoozing again here and there but I am really trying. So grateful for God's patience with me!

Love to you,
Karen

I have NEVER been a morning person. Never ever. I've always done my quite time at night, right before I go to bed. Crazy as it sounds, that's when I'm most alert. I remember when I was in the youth group, I always felt like I was being sneaky and kind of doing something wrong to do my quiet time at night. Because everyone always said I had to do it in the morning! So glad I finally realized it doesn't matter in the slightest!
