I’ve never been a joyful riser in the early hours. I try to have only one 7:00 in my day. However the past two weeks my wife and have been going to the gym at 4:30 each morning.
It is interesting how the world comes to life. Birds are already singing at 4:30. This gave me the idea that maybe that is the way I should start my morning. So I quietly sing a hymn of praise and thanksgiving while my body tries to begin the day.
Songs in the morning don’t have to be songs of mourning either. In facts as the new day brightens so do the prospects for greater accomplishments during the day.
I don’t know if I am a total convert to early rising but I am for singing and cheerfulness for each day.
