Early Bird

Does anyone else have children that like love to wake up...EARLY?!?! I have one early bird that has been this way since he got here, and when he wakes up, the house goes from being quite to sounding like a huge tornado has landed right in the middle of us all. Therefore his little sister, that would probably sleep in a little longer, has NO choice but to Wake up! He will have it no other way!!! So guess what? WE get up around here!!! Like it or not!
Does the early bird really get the worm? Or is he just sleepy?
She seems to take it pretty well. Me on the other hand...I'm still trying! I truly want to be a morning person, but I just can't get there!
'Early Bird' can be lots of help...
"Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise!" We should know if that is true within the next 20 years!

And y'all know me, I've been listening to Chuck again {Chuck Swindoll; my favorite!}

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The only place outside heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers of love, is Hell!"
C.S. Lewis

Thank you Lord for giving me one that LOVES to sleep late. I am not sure how that little active Allie Beth has any energy in the morning. She is quite the "goer"! Not sure that I have ever seen a more busy little girl before! Love you guys and was so glad to meet her and the new "grown up" John Luke!
