Did you ever wake up at 3 A.M. with your brain bursting with ideas? Maybe a warming trend set in and the room was about 10 degrees above normal. Maybe you slept real good for the last few nights, and you didn't do much yesterday.
This is a fairly normal thing to happen-- to me at least, and it's not without precedent. Jesus arose a great while before day and went up into the mountain.
John Wesley made a life long habit of (very) early rising-- for two hours of prayer and Bible Study before anybody else woke up. It was probably this that gave him the phenominal energy level that allowed him to preach constantly during the daylight hours and sleep in the saddle going to the next station, and he did that for sixty years. What a man!
Beside him I'm just a pigmy, but some fortunate things happened to me in my youth. Near the end of World War II I was solo operator on a steamer going back and forth between New Orleans and South and Central America. My hours were pretty cockeyed: beginning at 2:45 A.M., then a few hours at a time with a few hours off ending around 8 P.M. or so.
I got in the habit of that early rising. Well life intervened; I had to punch a clock at 8 every morning, and I was forced to keep more conventional hours. But now, free as a bird, with the checks coming in every month no matter what or where I am, what a life! I used to say that life begins at 40, then at 50, then at retirement!
And this early rising is a sometime gift. Every once in a while I get up early (like this morning), drink a cuppa, and knock out a couple of posts-- glory be.
