This morning I was sitting outside listening to the birds make their morning sounds and the crickets sing beneath a sky that was about to light up with a blazing sun. It was stunning! (And coffee, I had coffee!) I love these early mornings with DAD. There are some mornings I just want to cuddle back beneath the sheets but then I remind myself I’d miss this. This is not some legalistic thing I do. I know that if I needed to get a bit more sleep, DAD would be completely fine with it, but what I find is I WANT THIS! I want this more than I want an extra hour of sleep. I want this more than I want to go on a morning run. (To which some of you are like, umm, who wants a morning run anyway…;).) Here’s the thing, I want this time because I want Him! DAD won my heart over twenty years ago and He has continued to win my heart every day since.
