Rise And Shine

Rise And Shine

“Rise and shine, give God the glory, glory,” my mother’s voice floods my memory as a ray of light awakens me from a familiar dreamy place. As a morning person, the alarm clock is usually a blessing, and a symbol of renewal and fresh beginnings. During childhood, my mother routinely stumbled into our rooms, flipped on lights and sang jumbled lyrics which always turned into a different version of ‘Rise and Shine,’ in what seemed to be an extremely loud tone too early in the day. As a child I might not have appreciated the beauty of those early stirring hours, but as an adult I treasure memories of my mother’s joyous demeanor as she woke her children up for a new daily adventure.  Her positive attitude lured us out of our cozy beds each morning and revitalized us with peaceful energy and laughter. I now cherish the innocence and awe of a quiet sunrise, soaking up dawn’s beauty as sunlight pours into my bedroom, usually stealing a few moments of silent stretching before the day begins. However, I recently recognize it is all too easy to dismiss those humble mornings and begin constructing my mental task list, assessing all that lies ahead for my day, noticing the unfolded laundry, remembering the chores left undone, planning my workout and writing hour, letting my feet hit the floor in hurriedness and angst, rather than in serenity and stillness.  While I understand it is much more beneficial to take advantage of those waking hours and use them for clearing out my cluttered mind, I sometimes need a refreshing boost to jumpstart my day, similar to my mother’s early greetings years ago. I recently read a magazine article that suggested I get outside within the first 15 minutes of waking in order to energize and brighten my mind, body and spirit.   I decided to break free from my typical routine and slid out the front door for a simple stroll around the block one sticky summer morning, and am so glad I did. Often, on my walks I find myself humming my mother’s words, ‘Rise and Shine,’ and I truly do give God the glory for another new day!
