I am a morning bird, and live amongst night owls. I have been told more than once that sometimes after nine o’clock at night I can get kind of crabby. Hard to believe because if you could see me in the wee morning hours, I am all smiles and fully refreshed.
We are a house of

I happened to view part of a talk by Dr. Wayne Dyer regarding his book Wishes Fulfilled. He explains the power of using our imagination to change our life by
simply imagining in our thoughts what we want our life to be like. One
such example he gives is how the last five minutes between being awake
and falling asleep are usually spent with our minds going over things we
didn’t get done, problems we have, people who upset us, and so forth. He encourages the opposite, to spend the last five minutes being content
with our day spent, imagining our bodies healthy, being thankful, not
festering up scores to be settled, forgiving any misdeeds, thus letting
God heal and restore us as we fall sleep.
Then come morning, as he puts
we won’t wake up saying “Good God……MORNING!” rather we will arise with the thoughts of “GOOD MORNING God!”
like good Godly advice. Before I fall asleep I want my last thoughts
to be peaceful, so come morning I will be restored and ready to greet God
in a delightful way.
Another way for morning birds and night owls to keep God on their minds and in their hearts as life clicks on.
