She rises while it is yet night.

"She rises while it is yet night" - Proverbs 31:15

My goal in life is to be the Proverbs 31 woman.  I strive so hard every day to bhhe this woman.  I know I am no where near her yet but by making it a point to practice certain virtuous in my life, I find that I am getting there .... slowly.

One of those practices is getting in the habit of rising early and starting by day out on the right foot.  My work schedule requires me to get up super early so my alarm sounds off before the sun rises every day!  Over the last several months, I have set my alarm for about 20 minutes earlier than I really need so I can have a little "me" time to start my day.  The early morning hours at my house are the quietest and the stillest while everyone else is snoozing.  It is the perfect time for me to fix my cup of coffee and sit down alone.  There are a few things that I have found are perfect for me and this time...

I keep 4 items in my little "morning basket" that I use every single morning while I drink my fresh cup of coffee.

- Planner - Each morning, I take a few minutes to sit down with my calendar and daily to-do list and just jot down everything I need to do for the day.
- Notebook - After a quick little glance at what is in store for the day, I make it a point to write down at least one thing I am thankful for that day and any prayer requests I have.  
- My Devotional and Bible - I love starting each day off in God's word by reading a small devotional and spending time in the scriptures.

My absolute favorite part of my morning routine is the time I spend talking to God.  I thank him for my blessings and asks him for his strength and power as I take on the day ahead.  It is amazing the impact that a little quite time with the Lord each morning makes on my life.
