Today was planned as a busy day. I knew it would be busy. The calendar said "BUSY".
Ok, well it didn't really say that. But it might've well have. I wasn't looking forward to the business.
This morning my alarm went off around 6. Yes, that is sleeping in on this Saturday. I laid in bed for a little while. I contemplated setting the alarm for a later time. Then I saw the sunshine out my window. It was so pretty.
I decided to get up. The whole house was still sleeping. So I snuck out for a bike ride in the early morning sunshine. It was so quiet. It was still cool out. The morning breeze was wonderful. It was wonderful.
I did some good thinking this morning. It was a great start to the day. I got centered for the day. I got calm and prepared. I wish I could take off for miles on my bike every morning!
But for this busy day especially, I am thankful for some time this morning to take off on my own and enjoy God's beauty without the business of life distracting me!
