Morning Routines

I used to like to think that I was a spontaneous person.

But come to find out that I so am not.

Not that I like it this way. Really I would love to be that type of person who randomly calls a friend to come over and hang. Even when Dylan plans something fun like a night at the movie theater, he knows that he needs to give me  few hours to get used to the idea.

Some of us thrive on change and some of us love our routines.

I've found that if I start my day off right, I am happier all day long.

I roll out of bed and drive to crossfit. After an hour of sweating and throwing weights around, I feel better. Stronger. But more on that some other time.

Work for me is normally 11-7 or 12-8. I love this schedule! It gives me time to make a healthy breakfast and spend some time sitting with my coffee. I don't like having to rush to get ready, I like to go slow in the mornings.

I open the Word and let Life flow through my mind and hopefully seep deep into my heart. I don't believe that the daily reading of the Bible makes me any more holy...but if it brings me closer to God and I become more like Him, then that's the kind of holiness I want.

So....routines and rhythms... are you a fan?

Personally, I am so grateful that God gave us order in the midst of a very crazy world. He must have known we would need something steady to hold on to. Let's all seek to hang on to Him and His steadiness and not just our routines. Because when our life gets turned upside down, we are going to need more than crossfit and quiet coffee times to remain steady.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven..."
