How do you spend the first 15 minutes of your day?

Some of us wake up either groggy or refreshed, feeling eager or worried about the day ahead. Isn't is nice to spend at least 5 or 10 minutes of our first minutes of the day in prayer? It has become a "technical obligation" on my part before but I think lately, it was become my daily refreshment and I can enjoy it while taking a bath and singing out a good song to add to it.

I spend the first 15 minutes of my day, going around the house and picking up anything that was left out before going to bed. I also get the laundry and dishes going and let the dog outside. I also feed the fish and do the dishes. I then sign onto the computer to work for the day.

yes what a beautiful way to start a day and to end one, in prayer. I should do this more often. I usually start me day just feeling sore and achy and letting it pretty much take over my life at times.

Hi jeanniemay! As soon as I wake up, I rush to the bathroom and while doing my thing...I thank God for waking me up in time to hear the 6:30 mass each morning. It is sometimes so hard to wake up especially when I usually sleep so late. haha..Then I hurriedly dress up and just drink 2 glasses of warm water and off to church i go. I do spend my 1st hour with God and it is such a good way to start my day. And if I am not able to do so, I just have my prayers said each morning. Just my thoughts friend! Take care and have a nice day! :)

Hi JeannieMay... I haven't thought of this until you ask. I haven't thought that each time I wake up, first I pray to God for another day that he has given me. Second, when I get out of my room, I want to see the face of my dad, my mom, and my sisters. I just feel so good every time that I get to start my day with the glimpse of those people whom I cherish most in my life. It is my way of feeling blessed each day.

I agree it is a great way to start your day. I don't sing but I do go to two sites that have the scripture of the day. I love to read them and then I try really hard to focus on them during the day and live them out. When I get up I get on the computer usually but before checking mail or going to Mylot I go to those two sites to get my inspiration for the day.
