Early mornings with the Lord

As I mentioned the other day, I am trying to get up really early these days and this quote in My Utmost for His Highest made me laugh:

"Jesus did not say -Dream about thy Father in secret, but PRAY to thy Father in secret." : )
~It also made me think of a cute, certain someone who gets a little too cozy on the coach when he is having his quiet time with the Lord. lol (of course, Oswald meant daydreaming but this works too)

Here's some more from that entry:

"Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God."
Amen. May everything we do, be stamped with His presence!
