Hello Day #23!
Every morning when I get up, I head straight for the Keurig. That first cup of hot coffee – especially on these cold winter mornings – is probably the best cup of the day. Then I make my way through the quiet dark-ish house (Rob is usually upstairs getting dressed for work) to my office and sit down at my desk.
My desk – no matter which way its positioned if I rearrange it – gives me a view through a ginormous (seriously, you can’t even imagine how ginormous and there’s a story about it) picture window of my backyard. Usually early in the mornings there are squirrels running around, birds at the feeder and River laying there quietly watching them.
The very first thing I do is grab my devotional. I read the passage for the day and then sit quietly for a bit staring out the window, reflecting on what I read and getting my head and my heart ready for the day.
Even on event days when I have to get up long before the birds even think about rising, that half hour with my devotional, my coffee and God are non-negotiable.
