Advantages of Being an Early Bird
The early bird gets the worm and starting today gets to worship, too.
Our church meets in a gym that does not have air conditioning. Summer hours began today - worship is an hour earlier. That might not sound too bad to most people, but our mornings are hard. Our yeast symptoms are worse in the morning. I've read somewhere why that is, but I didn't write it down. I should have though so that I'd have a better answer to, "Have you tried going to bed earlier?" Being tired when we wake up is just part of it. We feel sick. We wake up even after a good night's sleep and can't believe how awful we feel. If we push hard and make ourselves get up,despite the pain and agony, it backfires on us. We end up feeling awful the whole day and not just the morning. If we gradually wake up and don't push too hard, the rest of our day goes better.
Summer hours for worship. Bummer.
