“This is how I praise the Lord.”

img_5415My husband’s alarm went off and broke me out of a deep sleep.  I stretched, took a deep breath, and considered whether to get up.  I’m fighting off a cold, I hadn’t slept all that well, maybe I could sleep for twenty more minutes, until my oldest daughter would come in to wake me up … no.  I should get up.  A thought popped into my head: “This is how I praise the Lord.

Was it the Holy Spirit?  Or just a random thought my groggy mind came up with?  Who knows.  But it got me out of bed, with purpose and resolve.  And it stuck with me through the day: to get up promptly, to greet the day cheerfully, to prepare myself to shoulder the day’s responsibilities, and to keep going throughout the day – this is how I praise the Lord.
