Do you remember the jingle, "The best part of waking up
is Folgers in your cup?" The fresh aroma of that first cup of coffee just
gets the blood flowing for coffee drinkers. I am not a coffee drinker but
I can relate to awakening to something really good to get my day going.
For me, I love the sound of the ocean. Awww, the waves, the wind, and the
birds they are all so soothing.
So how is your morning looking? What gets your blood flowing first thing in the morning? Take a moment to just reflect on a sound that soothes your soul. Since I don't live by the ocean, I purchased a waterfall that gives me the option of turning on sounds of nature. I try to begin and end my day with soothing sounds. Before I allow my mind to get cluttered with the events of the day, I remind myself the importance of dedicating time with Jesus in the morning. Psalm 5:3 tell us, "My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up." Let us begin and continue to give our "first thoughts" to God. Wouldn't it be great to dedicate all of the activities of our day to God?
Now that's a word!
