I am not sure how or why our Raise It Up meetings have been set for Sunday mornings at 8AM, but it is decidedly not fun to wake up that early on a weekend. However, I can’t complain too much, because once I am up it feels nice to have the entire day to enjoy.
I guess it all depends if you are a morning person…
I think I’m slowly turning into a morning person…except for this morning. Brian and I were out late watching Don Rader and some other talented jazz musicians, so there was no way I was going to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when my alarm went off at the crack of dawn.
I think it was Greek poet Homer (Odyssey and Iliad) who first made the reference that sleep is the brother of death. It is a reference I always think of when I’m pulling myself out of bed at ungodly hours.
Anyway, enough about that. Let’s continue on to the most interesting articles on the internet:
