"And She Rises Early..."


One of my blog friends, Kathi, from Bringing Up Arrows, shared with us her morning routine. The day she did this I had been thinking I would love to share what the Lord has established for me in MY early morning routine that has given me a foundation for my days.

The Lord has actually awakened me at 5:20 EVERY MORNING for the last 4 days!
I have not set my alarm once!! He waking me and saying,

"Cheryl, Good Morning my precious daughter,
I'm looking forward to being with you this morning"

Morning Routine:

5:20 ~ Bathroom Time: wash face and teeth, change, arm exercises,
25 crunches, clean counter and toilet

5:35 ~ Kitchen Time: Tea water on, unload diswasher, take meds, empty sink,
load of laundry

5:45 - Quiet Time ~
15 minutes of planning my day in my LOVELY sage green DAY PLANNER!!,
45 minutes of Bible Reading, Prayer, and Journaling

6:30 ~ check emails, weekends, treadmill for 30 minutes

6:45 ~ get kids up, shower, breakfast,

7:30 ~ Older kids leave for school, breakfast for Gracie and Liliana

This routine has DRASTICALLY changed my life!
Discipline is Freedom...The Lord knew how His creation would work!

What's your morning routine?
