I Did It! Joining the Chorus of Morning

I'd read about it. The reports were marvelous from those who'd done it. But changing over into the new way was daunting. It loomed a mountain, for years. Today I did it. Took the first step, first day and tomorrow will be the next. Because what I found this morning rivals, blasts any other experience out of the water.
Get out of the way O sleeper, I've become a morning person. Get out of bed and live. Awake, awake!

There wasn't just one, but an entire congregation waiting. The morning announced by hundreds of hidden participants. I walked up Boyne and the spruce were live with song. I knew if I grabbed a branch and shook there would be a burst of action, a launching of singers to the wind. Feathered flash mobs positioned everywhere, mixed in the middle of this glorious dawning day. Red breast enthroned on the the peak of # 136 warbling sweet passion to the sky.

And I did too, couldn't help but worship in the breeze not caring if those masked in cars slipping by saw my lips moving, thought I was a lunatic muttering to herself, crazy woman walking, talking in the morning. Yes. "In the morning I will sing of your love." (Ps 59:16)
I will set my heart before You and ask You to order my steps for this day. This gift You have given.

I asked and found Him faithful. "I need someone to be accountable to in the morning," I told those sweet sisters as we walked the trail another day. Encouragement bloomed. A garden of supportive words growing. But it all happened online. Watched the incourage webcast and found the HelloMornings Challenge. Awesome! I've signed up for an online group of girls who love to garden and read and want to book it into the mornings early like me.  Wow!  Thank you GoD!

"Ask and you shall receive." He says.
"Knock and it shall be opened to you.
"Seek and you shall find."
(Matthew 7:7)

I've entered a new realm. A different world is out there and I've stepped through the door.

See you in the morning.


  1. You've inspired me. Not to make a major life change or anything. Just to set my alarm 40 minutes earlier tomorrow, dust off my bike and ride around the block (it's actually a 7 km. "block"!)tomorrow morning before work. See you in the morning! :)

  2. Good for you Ang! And you too, Susan!
