the most peaceful time of day for me are the wee morning hours when everyone else is still asleep. the sun begins to peek its magnificent rays through the windows and the birds are chirping. the house is still blanketed in a quiet slumber and the kitchen smells like fresh brewed coffee.
this is my favorite time to pray and read and spend time with God. there’s just something so encouraging about that time of day for me. everyone always looks forward to moments when they can start again, wipe the slate clean and begin anew–sort of like new year’s day. that’s how i feel on the mornings when i get to take advantage of that precious quiet time.
