My early morning routine....

I do earnestly try to have some sort of routine to maximize my date with The King.  However, it must start the night before.

The night before I do the following things...

* make sure my Keurig is filled with water and power is on
* place my bible, journal, and my disciple notebook, headphones and pencil on my end table
*plug in my net book
* put a load of laundry in the washer with a delayed setting (love this feature)
*place socks and tennis shoes in bathroom
*set alarm on phone
*really, really try to be in bed not asleep by 9:30 reading

My Morning Routine....

* wake up, bathroom, get coffee (first things first)
* listen to 3-5 worship songs that are on my net book
*fill out my prayer notebook page
*work on laundry(remember I already have 1 load washed)
* prayer time
*devotion time along with bible reading
*check email
*make breakfast for the family and family devotion
*work on laundry

My mornings don't always go as plan, but over the years I have worked on not getting discouraged and to just strive on implementing my plan the next morning. Things happen and I must face them graciously.  Ouch!  Did I just say that?  Also, I realize that my routine will change depending on what season I am in.  For example, when I have a nursing baby, he or she is sharing my morning time with me.  In fact, watching the sun rise while nursing a little one has become one of my fondest memories of motherhood.  

I really need to arise at 5:30 instead of 6:00 in order to get my exercise plan in before the children wake up.  I am working on this, but haven't excelled yet.

So what is your morning routine to maximize your morning devotion?

  1. I'll post mine soon! This was great. I love the idea of sharing this because you can see how similar and different everyone's routines are.


My prayer is that you have been blessed in some way by my words. Thanks for leaving me a comment!
